This is an online course, meaning you can participate at the time of day that works best for your schedule. Would you like to prepare to do “pulpit supply” or lead worship with your pastor? This course will focus on basic understandings of worship and gaining skills for Lay Servants planning and leading worship. It fulfills requirements for “Leading Worship” and “Planning Worship” needed for Lay Speaker Certification. Particular emphasis will be given to students’ role in relation to other leaders and the congregation. We will explore our United Methodist worship history and the current authoritative “Basic Pattern” of worship and Holy Communion, 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, assisting at the Lord’s Supper and baptism, and other roles in 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 for the duration of the course. Lay Servant Ministries Approved - This class has been approved by Discipleship Ministries (formerly the General Board of Discipleship) as an advanced course in Lay Servant Ministries, and is the “worship” class required for Lay Speaker certification. This course is eligible for 1.5 CEU. Price: $85.00
