North Central District Lay Servants
Greetings North Central District LSMs
Thank you!! The Fall 2017 certification classes were a big success! We had 32 participants (10 in the Basic Course alone!) and instructors in all three classes. Another big thank you goes to Christ UMC Plano. They were gracious hosts and those big rooms came in handy with the larger classes and Celebration Service.
One of the best ways to keep on track with your course completion schedule is to come to our next quarterly meeting. In addition to great fellowship, prayer and a short devotion, we will set the course schedule and location for our Spring 2018 Training. If there are additional trainings needed, we can discuss those also. If you have a course you would like to take, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will meet Saturday, Nov. 18, 2017 at Lake Cities UMC. The meeting begins at 10 a.m. and usually lasts about an hour. For those interested in becoming a Certified Lay Speaker, we will be reviewing a sermon for approval at the end of our meeting. It is a great opportunity to learn about the CLS process.
May God continue to bless you and keep you. We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting!
North Central District Director of LSM
