    Good morning pastors and lay-leaders. I'm targeting the first Sunday in October to do a commissioning service for new leadership in the church (Sunday school teachers, WMU director, new deacon Chairman, etc.., as well as "returning" leaders into various responsibilities within the church).

    Thing is, I've never put one of these together. Anyone have any experience or insight on this subject?

    We kind of do something like that. All we do is to introduce those who are new, ask those who will be serving this year to stand and then have everyone reach out a hand towards those people and pray for them and the year. That's about it!
