Lay Servant classes provide laity with the opportunity for personal growth, to learn more about the United Methodist Church, and ways to provide leadership in the church. Becoming a Certified Lay Servant requires the Basic Class, one additional class, and the recommendation of their pastor and Church Council. Renewal requires a class every three years and the same recommendation.
