2021 EWD Spring Lay Servant Training

The time has come for our next set of East Winds District Lay Servant Ministry classes and we are looking forward to you being able to participate. Our classes this spring will be in the ZOOM format again out of an abundance of caution. At the moment it is our plan to offer the following:  

Intro to Lay Ministries: The Basic Course –  Saturdays:  March 6th, 13th, 20th, 27 & April 3rd  (10:00am to 12:00pm) – Led by Rev. Greg Timmons

The cost will still be $25 which includes the price of the book. I will be sending you your book as soon as I have your paperwork. In anticipation of taking a class I would suggest that you make sure that you have access to the internet. Sometimes this does take a little longer if we don’t have it in our homes. I would also remind you, if you haven’t taken a class in the last 3 years,  you need to do so to maintain your certification. If you are not sure if you need a class this spring, please do not hesitate to email me (Kristen LePalm lepalmkristen@gmail.com) and I will be happy to look up that information for you.
