Laity Sunday is set for October 21. This annual experience, in The United Methodist Church, is the third Sunday of October.
The Board of Laity has worked with the Communications Ministry Team to create a video that you can include in your worship celebrations on Laity Sunday. Recent graduates from the School for Lay Ministry talk about their life-changing experiences, how they are better prepared to partner with their pastors for service to their local churches and communities, and their deeper appreciation for the heritage and connection of The United Methodist Church.
Be watching for an email, early next week, that will let you know where to watch the video and how to download it so that it can be a part of your Laity Sunday service. The link to a reproducible bulletin insert will also be included.

P.S. I am personally inspired by the testimonials. They have been edited to fit the time constraints of the Laity Sunday worship service. Individual videos of the full-length interviews will be available soon.
