Classes will be held from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm (with one hour for lunch) at Young Memorial UMC in Thomson, Georgia (conveniently located one mile off I-20 and close to numerous restaurants).  Please register early so we will know how many textbooks to order. 

Remember you also have the option of taking online classes with North Georgia.  Go to the website at, click ministries, Lay Servant Ministries, course schedules.  They have both the LSM Annual Report and the Online Classes. 

  • During COVID-19 we have only had two pastors to call me needing a Lay Speaker.  That is probably because few pastors have been going on vacation, some churches are not meeting in person, and the pastors have been healthy! 
  •  Congratulations to our two newest certified Lay Speakers:  Ron Hess and Darlene Nelson.  Also the following people have been recertified to continue as certified Lay Speakers:  Terry Hale, Nicole Kelley, Joey McQuaig, and Linda Tapley.

 Please know that I am here if you have any questions or concerns.  I am proud of the ministries that all of you do.
