Annual Reader Meeting

The annual meeting and gathering for all readers and prayer leaders will be on Sunday, September 24 at 11:30 am.

If you have served as a reader in the past, or would like to begin serving as a reader, this meeting is for you. Reading is for everyone--young, old, and everyone in between.

Lessons are sent in advance by Wednesday evening via the City.

Readers are encouraged to practice the readings out loud, and arrive early to church on Sunday so as to practice using our microphones. Some readers also like to read the lessons using multiple Bible translations, to understand what parts to emphasize. We are happy to coach anyone on the use of the microphones as well as improving your reading skills. If you are interested in joining this ministry, please come to the meeting, or contact Laura Bathke via the City.
