Lay Servant Ministry Courses: Holy Communion
All laity are invited to participate in Lay Servant Ministries courses, not just persons seeking to become a Local Lay Servant or Certified Lay Servant.
“Come to the Table” is a course that can deepen your experience of Holy Communion through this wide-ranging study of This Holy Mystery, Scripture, Church history and United Methodist theology and practice of the sacrament. This course will reference, but go beyond, the official U.M. documents to include art, music, film and video resources to enrich our understanding and participation in the holy meal. The class includes help in starting a Eucharistic ministry and discussion of the unique sacramental challenges of the digital age.
