Central North District Lay Servant Ministries Course Offerings 
All courses will meet for three weeks, and a hybrid format will be used.  The hybrid model will require 2 hours of interactive instruction in ZOOM followed by 2 hours of weekly instruction in Google Classroom. At the end of the third week there will be no Google Classroom assignments.  Ten clock hours are required for the completion of a course.  In order to join a course, participants will need to download the ZOOM app.  Prior to the beginning of the class, a meeting ID and password will be sent to all enrollees.  It is highly recommended that you use a computer rather than a smart phone for ZOOM sessions.  For the Google Classroom session, participants will receive an invitation from the facilitator to join the class.  The cost of courses is $42.00 which does not include the book. Individuals will need to purchase their books from Cokesbury, Upper Room Books, Amazon or any vendor where it can be found.    To register for one of the courses below go to the link below and click the highlighted link, “Click here register”.  https://www.ngumc.org/courseschedules
