NIS Diakonia Program
Open Registration - Dive In at Any Time!
The diakonia™ Program is a two-year process of lay spiritual formation consisting of 12 courses, 6 per academic year. Each course is 5 sessions in length and meets weekly on Zoom for a 3 hour class. Assignments and reading relate directly to your life and ministry (within family, parish, neighborhood, and vocation), giving you a solid background of the topic. You work at your own level, and assignments reflect the understanding that students are already busy in their families, jobs, and parish. Typically, students average approximately 2 to 5 hours of studies per week in addition to class time. The goal of the diakonia program is to help you discover your God-given gifts, strengthen your faith and discern your purpose within your congregations, synods, and the church-wide body of Christ. Through the diakonia experience, you’ll gain a better under-standing of theology and your relationship to God, helping you bear fruit as a light of Christ in your community and beyond. New courses begin every 5 weeks, and you can jump in at any time. Not sure, come to a few classes and see if diakonia is for you. For more information on the diakonia program, visit www.nisynod.org/diakonia or discuss it with your pastor.  

Offerings
If you aren't able to be present for in-person worship at GSLC, you can mail your offerings to the church at 118 East Mason Street, Lena, IL 61048.

If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact Wayne or Pr. Miho.
