“The Certified Lay Minister program is designed to offer anyone who wants to be a stronger leader in their church a good foundation,” said Dr. Nita Crump, Director of Connectional Ministries.  “We encourage everyone who is assigned to a church as Lay Supply to participate in this program, and we also encourage all other church leaders to consider it.”  Participating in the CLM program will make any lay person a stronger leader in their church, she said.

Season of Thanksgiving

A Season of Thanksgiving is a month-long season of thanks and giving.  It seeks to refocus our nation on giving thanks to God and giving food to others.  It seeks to focus our nation on giving thanks for the people who take care of us and on caring for the people who depend on us.  It seeks to focus our nation on giving to others and allowing others to give back to us.  A Season of ThanksGiving gives the donor and the recipient and opportunity to give thanks and give prayers.  Thus, it becomes a season of Thanks and Giving for everyone who participates.

Don’t forget to pick up your “Season of Thanksgiving” booklet today. They are  available in the Narthex.
