PROSPERITY — The final class of the Heartland Conference Lay School of Religion is rescheduled 7 p.m. Feb. 18. According to school committee member the Rev. Derald Edwards, all of the group presenters will be able to attend. The change makes up for the final class which was canceled due to inclement weather during the recent snow event.
The school, which is open to lay members and clergy, has averaged around 70 people per evening this year. Grace Lutheran Church continues to host the event which now is in its 20th year.
Sponsored by Heartland Conference area Lutheran Churches, this year it includes courses taught by Newberry College professor Christina Wendland; Dr. Charles P. Sigel, professor emeritus from Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary; layperson liturgical artist, Heather Harris; youth minister/associate in ministry Stephanie Stoudemayer; and MCHS chorus teacher Lynn Grimsley, who team taught a youth music and Bible study course with Stoudemayer.
