To God be the glory for the things He has done! 2012 presents a new beginning for the African Methodist Episcopal Church and especially the Western North Carolina Conference Lay Organization. We have much work to do in the vineyard of our Lord. The Lay Organization, being led by the Spirit and empowered to serve, will set new goals and a new agenda for the new century and continue to lead from Church membership to Christian discipleship. The education of the laity is one of the main functions of the Lay Organization. In order to be good members, we must be knowledgeable about the workings of our church. The object and purpose of the Lay Organization is defined in the law. There is legislative authority to educate the laity in the laws of the AME church. We minister to the intellectual, physical, emotional, and environmental needs of all people by spreading Christís liberating gospel through word and deed. Thus, we are the Western North Carolina Conference Lay Organization. If you have the gift of speaking, preach Godís message. If you have the gift of helping others, do it with the strength that God supplies everything. Everything should be done in a way that will bring honor to God because of Jesus Christ who is glorious and powerful forever. Amen. 1Peter 4:11 (Contemporary English Version)

Yours in Christ,

Dwight M. Patterson, President

Western North Carolina Conference Lay Organization
