Lay Leadership Training – Growing Our Spiritual Lives
September 18 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
GROWING OUR SPIRITUAL LIVES
Reform your church, O Lord, beginning with me.
The first step in making our churches more vibrant, faithful and effective, is for each of us to cultivate our spiritual lives. Our congregations are like trees: in order to reach out with our branches and bear fruit, we must first deepen our roots in our faith.
This course on Spiritual Life will meet for three sessions at Trinity United Church of Christ, Telford, Pa., on Saturday mornings from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. as follows:
September 18 – Spiritual growth through congregational worship
October 9 – Spiritual growth through personal disciplines
October 30 – Spiritual growth through small groups.
This course is recommended by the continuing support group of consistory presidents that was meeting monthly at Faulkner’s Swamp Church. It is designed with church leaders (elders and deacons) in mind but is open to anyone who feels challenged to deepen their spiritual life.
The course will be led by Dr. Charles A. Maxfield, an ordained United Church of Christ minister with rich experience in lay ministry training. He will be assisted by Constance A. Lezenby, a spiritual director (M.A. in Spiritual Direction) recognized by her Friends’ Meeting as a traveling minister.
The cost of this course is $15.00 per person for the three sessions. The enrollment will be limited to 20 persons.
Additional applicants will be placed on a waiting list. Please register by sending your name, e-mail address and check payable to Trinity United Church of Christ, to the following address is:
