Friday dinner and Saturday breakfast are a welcome times for fellowship and to gather and relax before class. You are welcome to bring your own meal. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate and soda will be available all day. Specifics for snack and meal provisions will be determined for the St. Andrew in Wausau and the Synod Office in Appleton based on number of students and accommodations.

NEW – Covenant Groups
These groups of 3-5 students are important for processing information, sharing reactions to the topics discussed in class and peer support.  This time will allow you to re-center and focus on your call as a student of Lay School before Friday classes begin. 

Saturday Morning Worship
Worship is a significant part of the Lay School experience, and affords opportunities for both expression of faith and personal growth. The monthly worship service is planned and led by a group of students and is approximately 20 minutes in length. Every Core Certificate Program student is encouraged to work with a worship planning team at least once before receiving their certificate of completion. To accommodate students who are unable to attend in person, the worship service will be shared on social media. Prayer requests can be captured from Lay School website (Click HERE) or gathered in-person before worship.
