AC2022 Retirement/Ordering of Ministry Service

The Ordering of Ministry and Retirement service on Pentecost Sunday. “Called and Claimed for Hope,” A Service for the Ordering of Ministry, will begin at 9:00 am on June 5. Bishop Kiesey and Bishop Trimble will follow the cross and lead a procession of people being acknowledged this year, including retirees, those being recognized, newly commissioned and ordained.
The other members and guests will sit among the tables and bleachers during this time of worship and identify each of their unique callings for ministry. Attending clergy can bring vestments or symbols of their calling to place on themselves during the service. Likewise, all laity are invited to bring symbols of their ministry through baptism and commitment of the prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.
The Des Moines First United Methodist Church will perform Sunday’s music.
