Lay Servant Ministry Courses: Theology
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.

This course also addresses The Apostle’s Creed, 2000 years of key debates that have influenced Christian thinking, who has shaped Christian theology through the centuries, and why Christian theology is important to church laity.
