I am excited to announce that we will be having a District Lay Leadership Training/Resource Day for the State College District!  I would encourage attendance of laity and clergy.

CEU’s will be awarded at the conclusion of the day (after the closing).

NO CHARGE - This event is your Shares of Ministry at work!

 (Good to share with the congregations!)


Here is the preliminary schedule and workshops:


9:30-9:45 am – Registration and gathering


9:45 – 10:15 am – Worship


10:30 am-12:30 pm – Workshops (a complete description will be coming soon!)


KIM SHOCKLEY Lay Leadership Training – This is an opportunity for local church lay leaders (not just those who are designated as the lay leader(s) of your church) to learn who Spiritual Transformational Leaders are and what they do.
