SOUTHERN HILLS DISTRICT
Imagine what your church could do and be with an involved group of lay servants as leaders, teachers, doers, and supporters …
Lay servants use their gifts at the level where ministry happens: in the local church. Lay servant ministry builds leaders, and especially leaders who are growing spiritually as disciples. Lay servant training and experience often prepares a person to be involved in worship leadership and support. Since this is our most critical time each week to connect with each other and the community, it means that the laity, not just the pastor, are part of our passionate worship and hospitality. Lay servant ministry gives you a chance to serve in the model of Jesus.
Remember, lay servant ministry is just one path to draw laity into the life of the church.
Lay servant ministry is so much more than lay speaking! Lay servants in Southern Hills are pulpit supply, Sunday School teachers, involved in United Methodist Women, leaders in the church, youth leaders, participants in Emmaus, part of district leadership and committees, liturgists and occasional preachers.
Beyond the local church lay servants are also critical in community outreach, mission trips, and service.
If you are already serving and leading in your local church and would like to be encouraged and find new meaning and depth in what you do.
If you have a desire to follow Jesus and reach out to others.
If you have a desire to share your faith with others, and see your church grow.
