Leading Public Prayer
Lay Servant Class led by George Rhoads
Saturday, April 21 from 9am-5pm
As a leader of public prayer, you are not being asked to utter your personal prayers in public, but rather to speak on behalf of the whole church or group. The purpose of this class is to relieve the anxiety of inexperienced leaders of public prayers by discussing the nature of payer, the forms, mechanics and vocabularies of prayer and practicing editing prayers.
You can pay for the class in the church office, or online now by clicking the Donate button. Please add "Lay Servant Class" in the "List specific donation instructions" area of the payment screen.
HOMEWORK: Read the book Let the Whole Church Say Amen! A Guide for Those Who Pray in Public, by Laurence Hull Stookey. The book can be found at cokesbury.com. Complete the various exercises of writing and editing prayers found throughout the book.
