On September 23, 2017, Lay Licensed Worship Leaders (LLWL), and those interested in becoming a worship leader are invited to Creston for a one day workshop.
Resource person: Rev. Paula Ashby of Trinity United Church, Creston, BC
Here’s what we’re going to be doing:
- 10am check in
- telling our stories
- Liturgical year overview
- Theological reflection model
- prayer and sermon writing
- putting it all together – leading worship
- 4pm checking out and heading home
Location is likely to be at the Anglican Church, 422 7 Ave N, or perhaps at Spectrum Farms on Erikson Road, As Trinity United Church does not yet have their own church building, location for events is always a bit challenging, so the location for this event will be confirmed closer to the event date.
Meals will be provided by the Trinity UCW. Mileage will be reimbursed in accordance with Kootenay Presbytery Expense Policy (one vehicle per Pastoral Charge, and car pooling is requested). There is no registration fee.
LLWLs attending will receive a certificate to acknowledge their ongoing training and commitment to worship leadership.
If you would like to attend, please complete the online registration:
If you have already confirmed by email, please re-confirm and register by using the registration link.
Thanks and blessings to Kootenay Presbytery Planning and Visioning Ministry Team (PVT) who have approved a budget for this training event, and to the Support to Congregations Ministry Team for initiating this event.
United Church Remits 1 to 4 were approved by a majority of the 84 voting presbyteries and 2,136 voting pastoral charges of the United Church. There is a final step in the remit process to be taken by the 43rd General Council when it meets in July, 2018.
