Event Details

Would you like to prepare to do “pulpit supply” or lead worship with your pastor? This course will focus on basic understandings of worship, gaining skills for Lay Servants planning and leading worship, and fulfill requirements for Lay Speaker Certification. Particular emphasis will be given to students’ role in relation to other leaders and the congregation. We will explore the history and practice of Christian liturgy and worship leadership, the task of planning worship, and various settings and approaches where Lay Servants and Certified Lay Speakers may lead worship. In addition, we will also explore the work of reading Scripture, leading prayer, distribution of the elements at the Lord’s Supper, and the basic dos and don’ts of effective worship leadership. All students are expected to have or have access to the United Methodist Hymnal (1989) and the United Methodist Book of Worship (1992). All other course materials are included as downloads in the course. Note: Be aware that this course has daily assignments and there is an expectation of daily online group participation. Students should expect to spend a minimum of an hour a day on weekdays. This class has been approved by Discipleship Ministries as an advanced course in Lay Servant Ministries, and is the “worship” class required for Lay Speaker certification. This course is eligible for 1.0 CEU. Price: $85.
