Philadelphia and the East District will get their first
Four Stations of the Holy Spirit bilingual lay evangelism training event on Saturday, July 20, at Mount Zion UMC, 1530 N 11th Street (at Oxford St.),
Philadelphia. It will be offered in English and Spanish.
Churches in the West, North and South districts have hosted five of these well-attended, inspiring, instructional gatherings since January 2018. They are sponsored by the Eastern PA Conference’s Congregational Development Team.
The half-day training event, lasting from 8:30 AM to noon, teaches primarily lay people to 1) pray one-on-one with others; 2) anoint others with oil; 3) serve Communion wherever and whenever people need it; and 4) help those in search of “newness of life” in Christ to affirm their baptism. Some clergy also attend, eager to introduce the ministry to their congregations.
