The Lay Servant Ministries is a great course to give you ideas of how to be a more effective leader in the Methodist church at whatever level you may serve. It also is a Methodism 101 crash course and gives an idea of how the church runs. In addition, this can be important information for all members and is not an indication of signing up to lead a particular group at this time. This is knowledge that can be helpful in being a member of the church. And because it doesn't come around very often, take advantage of this learning opportunity.
