Advance LACE Classes

Click here to register for the February 9th Class on Prayer.



The Kentucky Conference is making Advanced L.A.C.E. classes available in each district through online live webinar or prerecorded classes.  The topic of the first class is prayer, taught by Sarah McGinnis, on Saturday, February 9, 2019.  Sarah is a young adult in our conference who is attending Asbury Seminary, and her passion is about prayer. Interested laity need to preregister for this Advanced L.A.C.E. class as soon as possible, no later than Thursday, January 31 by emailing  the Owensboro district office at distoff@kwc.edu or using the online registration link found on the Owensboro district website.  This class will meet at Mary Kendall Home, 201 Phillips Ct, Owensboro, and the day’s schedule is as follows: 

8:30 CT  Sign-in begins

9:00        Advanced class begins

11:30      Lunch provided onsite; monetary donation encouraged

12:00      Class continues

2:00        Finish the day

This time of teaching will be interactive.  “Break-out sessions” provide time to pause the teaching broadcast and allow participants to discuss and share about the topic.


Participants should obtain one of the following books that Sarah recommends, and bring it to use during the Feb. 9 class:
