Ministry of the Laity

All of God's people, in all places and at all times, are called to love and serve.

This means each member of the United Methodist Church is called to be in ministry - not just those who are called into ordained ministry. This call to service of evey member is what we refer to as the Ministry of the Laity.

We rejoice in God's Call to be disciples of Jesus Christ. Claimed by baptism and nurtured by God's redeeming love and grace, we are compelled to live under the direction of the Holy Spirit. We are called to an every-moment ministry.

Ministry of the laity is:

  • Living faithfully as disciples of Jesus Christ in our everyday life.
  • Responding to God's gifts of grace and call to serve.
  • Using our gifts and resources to serve others.
  • Loving our neighbors
  • Living out the Gospels in all our relationships - at home, at school, at work, at play, in our communities and in our world.
  • All of the above and more
