God’s Calling Event for Laity!

Explore the Question: “God are you calling me?”

Have you ever wondered “God where/how is it you are calling me to serve?”  Do you know individuals being called to the ministry of a pastor within the United Methodist Church?  Have you wondered what is the difference in serving as an ordained elder, ordained deacon, a local pastor and /or a certified lay minister?  Do you know the various certified ministries honored by the United Methodist Church?

You are invited to join us on Saturday, August 6, 2016 at St. Johns Newberry UMC in Williamsport for the God’s Calling Event presented by the Enlistment & Interpretation Committee of the Susquehanna Conference Board of the Ordained Ministry. This is a day apart for laity 18 years and older as we examine the ministry of the ordained elder, ordained deacon, local pastor and certified ministries of the church.  This event will include information in regards to scholarship and grant availability, educational requirements, seminaries, the role of leadership within the church, and also “How do I know it is God Who Is Calling Me?”

This is an exciting opportunity for those discerning a call to ministry
If you are in the candidacy process this is a requirement for certification, and a requirement for those in the process of becoming a Certified Lay Minister.
