    Continuing on Wednesdays, March 6, 13, 20. This class, part of the lay licensing curriculum, is required for the worship leader and lay pastoral leader licenses. However, the course may be of general interest to those not pursuing a lay license at this time. The class will take a close look at the Book of Common Prayer, particularly understanding its practical use in leading worship. Participants will learn how to lead Morning and Evening Prayer services; how to plan worship services; how to serve communion from reserved sacrament; and more.
