Is God speaking to your heart?
Sign up for September ministry rally
Have you responded in some way to a call to ministry? Do you want to find out more about what it takes to become a lay, licensed, or ordained minister in The United Methodist Church?
If you answer yes, register now to attend a Call to Ministry Rally and Retreat on Sept. 12 at OKC-Wesley United Methodist Church, NW 25th and Classen.
And if you know someone who is pondering God’s call to become a pastor, tell them about this rally and help them sign up. The invitation is for people who are in high school or older.
Last fall, more than 100 people participated in the inaugural rally/retreat.
The Sept. 12 free event will be 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Lunch will be provided for all who register.
Welcoming and worship will open the gathering. You will experience great music, inspirational preaching, and the sacrament of Communion.
The morning will be filled with learning, inspiration, and group building. You will hear from others who have experienced God’s call in their lives.
In the afternoon, participants will learn about the Candidacy Process, be introduced to Group Mentoring, and clergy mentors will be assigned. Members of each new small group will get acquainted, select future meeting dates, and work together on first steps. Those in high school will meet as an informal group.
Reservations are needed to ensure sufficient materials and food. Sign up by 4:30 p.m. Sept. 5; contact Connie Barnett, firstname.lastname@example.org, 405-530-2006.
