This class is for people who have never taken a Lay Servant class or those who don’t remember taking it. Lay Servants are to serve the local church or charge in any way in which their witness or leadership and service inspires the laity to deeper commitment to Christ and more effective discipleship. This includes the interpretation of scriptures, doctrine, organization, and ministries of the church. This basic course merely opens the door for you to continue developing the gifts and graces that God has given you.
