The Eastern PA Conference’s 2021 Laity Academy is like a smart restaurant adapting its business to COVID pandemic life.
This year the annual lay training event that offers nourishment for the mind and soul, will feed its flock in two ways: via dine-in and delivery—that is, by offering courses both onsite and online.
That dual approach means planning a two-part, hybrid Laity Academy for the first time: a virtual session offering classes online on Zoom in two weeks—August 6-7, on Friday evening and Saturday—and an in-person session, with classes held onsite at various churches, Oct. 1-2.
A few of the courses will be offered twice, on both weekends, like second helpings of a meal. Most will be offered once. But dedicated, eager-to-learn students will have two opportunities to be fed valuable knowledge about becoming and “making disciples for the transformation of the world.”
