As laity in your church, your role in shaping conversation and supporting your congregation’s ministry is vital, and we are here to support and equip you in your work. To that end, we are reaching out to be sure you are aware of a resource and an opportunity…
Resource – United Methodist Communications has released a slide deck with speaker notes to aid leaders in walking their church through what it means to be United Methodist. We encourage you to reach out to your pastor and offer to lead a conversation about who we are as connected followers of Christ. To learn more, check out this press release: “Important Conversations Made Easier with UMC Presentation Slide Deck.”
Opportunity – The Center for Leadership Excellence is offering an in-person Day of Learning, Leading During Anxious Times.
