$ Life Together in the United Methodist Connection (Polity) (Harbor District Lay Servant Ministries)

July 14 @ 1:30 pm 5:30 pm

The Harbor district Lay Servant Ministries team presents Life Together in the United Methodist Connection (Polity) … revised and updated after the latest General Conference!

This 8-hour class is divided between two Sunday afternoons. Participants must attend both sessions in order to receive credit for the course.

July 14 @ 1:30 pm – 5:30 pm

July 21 @ 1:30 pm – 5:30pm

Why does The United Methodist Church do things the way it does? And what does any of this have to do with trying to be a place and a people that embody the Kingdom of God? This course will help participants get their bearings and consider the specific structural challenges The United Methodist Church faces in the 21st century.

Order Your Book!
All participants are expected to read The Method of Our Mission, by Laceye C. Warner, prior to class. Participants will also need a copy of the 2016 Book of Discipline, which can be accessed online for free.

Registration is open until Thursday, June 27, 2024, at 11:00 pm. This gives the attendee enough time to register for the training, order and receive the reading materials, and read before the first day of class.
