Want to read scripture in church? Come to one of the two upcoming Youth Lector Training sessions:
Wednesday 11/9 @ 2:15ish (so you can walk/drive up from NMS/NHS bus) until 3:30pm
Sunday 11/13 @ 11:45am until 1:00pm
You can come to EITHER session – no need to come to both. It’s the same training being offered at two times so we can get the most youth to attend and start reading during the worship service again.
Email Sue Vogelman to sign up.
