There's still time to register for the first flight of CLayMAway, the traditional Conference Lay Minister training which is held at the United Methodist Center in West Sacramento (in contrast to the new home-based program, CLayM@Home). Some openings remain for the November 8-12 classes.
The second flight will be January 17-21, 2011. It is a continuation from November and no new entries will be accepted, except by special request from a district superintendent.
CLayMAway will be in a group setting, with live lectures.
Both programs – CLayMAway and the new CLayM@Home – can result in eligibility for "Certified Lay Minister" assignment, for graduates who believe they are so called. The same application will be used for both programs.
For more information and to apply, visit the CLayM page on the Conference website at www.cnumc.org/CLayM.
