Church Leaders Attend Annual Training Gathering @ Lancaster First UMC

Our church held a church leader training at our Crossroads facility last night. The purpose of the training was to equip our 135 committee and program area servant volunteers with information related to our:
  • United Methodist Theology
  • Church's Mission & Discipleship Process (Love-Grow-Serve)
  • Staffing/Committee Structure
  • Church Meetings
  • Church Finances, Policies, & Resources
We began our meeting with fun singing and also provided time for committees and program areas to be introduced. The cookies were also a highlight!

Each person received a leadership packet with all of the information that was covered during the training. The other wonderful thing about this annual training is that it only lasted one hour! How about that?!

"Lord, bless and equip our church leaders with the resources we need to carry out your mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Amen."
