Lay Servant Ministry Courses: Lay Pastoral Care Giving
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.
Lay Pastoral Care Giving
How do you learn to care for others in the community—whether the community of faith or the extended community? Some people seem to have natural gifts, but most of you can learn to improve your caring skills. This course offers insights into the life span and the dynamics of contemporary life to help your church leaders reach out with God’s love and care to others.
