Lawrencefield Parish Church
Sunday Services at 8AM and 10 AM
Education at Lawrencefield Parish Church
At Lawrencefield we recognize that children are not only special to God but are also future leaders. Most families with children choose to worship at our 10:00 AM service. Children from infancy to middle school meet during the Liturgy of the Word and rejoin their parents in church at the Offertory so that families may receive Communion together. Children who are baptized may receive communion.
Special events for children include our July 3rd Cookout and Fireworks viewing, our annual Fall picnic, and our Halloween Party. (Grown-ups are welcome too!)
Confirmation Class is available for youth who who wish to make a mature affirmation of faith. The youth are encouraged to discern their area of ministry and service within the church. Many serve as acolytes to assist in the Sunday liturgy. Other service as well as recreational opportunities are explored.
Adult Education is offered seasonally between the 8:00 and 10:00 services on Sunday morning. In addition, Lenten study programs are offered seasonally in conjunction with the Wheeling Cluster (a local organization of Episcopal Churches) and are hekld at St. Matthew's Church on Chapline Street.
Lawrencefield supports educational programs of the Episcopal Diocese of West Virginia taking place at the Sandscrest Conference and Retreat Center, located just over the hill in Wheeling West Virginia (http://www.sandscrest.com); and at Peterkin Camp and Conference Center, located in Romney, WV (http://www.peterkin.org).
