Lay Servant Ministry Courses: Holy Spirit Here and Now

Lay Servant MinistriesAll laity are invited to participate in Lay Servant Ministries courses, not just persons seeking to become a Local Lay Servant or Certified Lay Servant.

Holy Spirit Here and Now

This course focuses on understanding how the Holy Spirit works in our everyday lives, and on recognizing that the Holy Spirit is continually with us — 24/7. An understanding of the Holy Spirit’s work is foundational for many other advanced Lay Servant Ministries courses, including Leading and Planning Worship, Communion, Baptism, Theology, Prayer, Organization of the United Methodist Church (polity), and Storytelling. A major learning tool in the course is creating liturgies that can be used in worship services and personal growth, as well as to minister to individuals and small groups.
