Celebrate Week of the Laity

Week of the Laity will be celebrated January 16 – 22,  2022. Laity Sunday is a special time when the church pauses to consider lay leaders’ varied gifts for ministry to church and community.

We have plans to celebrate with you the love and strength of laity across the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). It is our hope you will gather in safe ways to affirm lay leaders and edify their ministry in the world. As you start the year, these resources inspired by Simon of Cyrene will aid you in doing so thoughtfully. Simon of Cyrene was a North African man we find supporting the enfleshed church in Matthew 27, Mark 15, and Luke 23. We only know him because of what he did for another. Let’s journey with Simon together!
