Pastor Jeff and Pastor Brenda are offering training session for people who are interested in becoming or continuing to serve as liturgists, leaders of the Time with the Children, and Communion Elders.
People who are interested in becoming or continuing to serve as liturgists need to attend the training that will be held on Sunday, May 13, at the conclusion of the worship service, in the sanctuary. Yes, that’s Mother’s Day, but it’s the day the schedule that works. Pastor Jeff promises that the training won’t take too long.
Training for new and continuing Time with the Children leaders will be held on Sunday, May 20, immediately following worship, in the sanctuary. Again, this will be a brief training.
People who feel called to be Communion Elder should contact Pastor Jeff by May 15. Trainings are tentatively planned for June 3 and 10, 2:00-5:00 – but they will only be held if interest is voiced. Current Communion Elders say that serving in this capacity has increased the spiritual meaning of communion for them, that it has deepened their faith, and has helped communion to become “a perfection-free zone.” One Elder said that communion has become a model for mission work – a model based on solidarity with rather than service to.
