At St. Lawrence we strive to offer a variety of worship experiences and formation opportunities. Programming occurs regularly.
Education for Ministry (EfM) is a unique four-year distance learning certificate program in theological education based upon small-group study and practice. Curriculum is provided by The Beecken Center of The School of Theology at The University of the South in Sewanee, TN. EfM is offered throughout the US and Canada and in many other countries.
EfM at St. Lawrence meets once a week January-June and September-December. The first year texts cover the Hebrew Scriptures, year two the New Testament, year three the History of Christianity, and year four Comparative Theology. All years meet together in a one-room-schoolhouse format; the program is expertly arranged so the discussions are interconnected and relevant to one another. We engage in the art of Spiritual Reflection on a regular basis, a method by which we tie what we've learned to our everyday lives and learn to see the world through a theological lens.
New participants are being welcomed January 2022. The group meets on Zoom (for the time being) Tuesdays 9:00-11:30AM. Cost for the year is $360. For additional information or help with registration contact EFM@stlawrencechurch.org. Deadline for new registration is January 7, 2022.

A self directed formation opportunity offered by The Episcopal Church, The Way of Love is a way of life. More than a program or curriculum, it is an intential commitment to a set of practices. It's a commitment to follow Jesus: Turn. Learn. Pray. Worship. Bless. Go. Rest.
