Laity Sunday is a day set aside to remember that every person is invited to embody God’s restoration project of healing love, justice, and world-repair. It is a special Sunday defined by General Conference “to celebrate the ministry of all Christians” (2016 Book of Discipline
, ¶ 264.2). Usually observed on the third Sunday in October (this year, October 17), Laity Sunday is one way we express the deep conviction that all
are called to participate in God’s mission and live this calling through the ministry of the church. This year’s theme is "Rise Up! And Revive God’s Gift." (2 Timothy 1:3-7).
