Ministry at FUMC Holland
The ministry of the laity, in a local church, is as important as the ministry of the clergy. In fact most would argue that the laity, simply because of their numbers, are more important to the vitality of a local church.
Leaders often measure the strength of the churches they serve by the scope of the churches’ ministries. This overlooks the greater impact that the church is having in its community through the ethical conduct and sound decision making of its members as they live daily lives in the world. Formed in Christ, these members undertake a variety of vocational pursuits: teachers, doctors, farmers, lawyers, laborers, scientists, managers, and business owners. They touch most sectors of the economy, including business, government, the military and non-profits. The righteous life they pursue has a ripple effect acros the culture in which they live.
