The Lay Organization is comprised of members of the congregation age 18 and older. The purpose of the Lay Organization is to organize and train the laity of the African Methodist Episcopal Church.  It is dedicated to promoting the history, traditions, principals, discipline, evangelistic, financial and general well-being of African Methodism.  The Lay is also charged with keeping alive the memory of our founder, Bishop Richard Allen.  The Lay also studies the book of Discipline and learns the law of the church.  It encourages financial support of the church's programs and teaches stewardship practices to the youth and new members.  The Lay also supports various church programs and organizations and gets involved with social action in the local church community.
