The NJ diakonia Steering Committee is pleased to host a workshop for Worship and Music committee members and lay leaders who are being asked to lead worship services in light of the shortage of ordained clergy.  Diakonia students and graduates will find this workshop a delightful refresher of their Worship course. 

This workshop will explore not only the biblical foundations of our Lutheran worship service, but also how lay leaders can serve in worship leadership.  A mixture of instruction and small group work will give participants hands-on experience in planning a Service of the Word from ELW.
