Methodism Classes -- Spring 2022

**Please share with your congregations**

 

The Catawba Valley District is offering classes on Methodism for clergy and laity who serve in leadership positions in your church. These classes meet the requirements for Advanced Lay Servant courses in the Catawba Valley District.

All classes are taught Dr. Jonathan LeMaster-Smith. 

There are three 2-day classes offered this spring: UM History, UM Doctrine, and UM Polity.  Each class consists of 2 days of instruction, held on a Friday - Saturday.

There are also books that are required, which you will need to purchase before class and bring with you. The books are available at www.amazon.com and/or www.cokesbury.com. 

Classes will be held at Central United Methodist Church (113 S Piedmont Ave, Kings Mountain, NC).

 

** Certificates will be issued, which can then be used for CEU credit or for Catawba Valley District Advanced Lay Servant course credit.
