First United Methodist Church in Clover is hosting “LYFT: Lifting Ministry Higher” – two tracks of workshops focusing on ministry and media and music/choir – on Saturday, March 3.
- Music/Choir – Melodie Galloway, coordinator of choral and vocal studies at the University of North Carolina at Asheville, will lead three sessions with the goal of learning three new anthems for the church year.
- Communicating Faith in the 21st Century – Focuses on going beyond just having a church website, to effectively implementing a broader online presence through social media.
- Your Church Website: Rethinking Your New Front Door – Covers the tools to plan, build, and launch a successful online strategy that helps people connect with your church in a new way.
- How to Use Media Effectively in your Worship Experiences – The owner of Twelve:Thirty Media will share practical ways you can use video (series countdowns, sermon bumpers, song videos, games and more) in your experiences – all without wiping out your budget.
The event will run from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., with workshops. Cost is $10 per person, with a $50 maximum per church. Lunch and snacks are included. Those attending the music/choir workshop will pay an additional $10 fee to cover the cost of sheet music.
