Lay School

Classes for faith development

The Lay School of Theology at Luther Seminary is a program of informal, non-credit classes taught by seminary professors for lay persons who want to learn more about matters that relate to their Christian faith and life.

Register now for 2015-2016 classes. This year's Lay School of Theology courses include a variety of courses on biblical topics from both the Old and New Testaments, and we continue our series of  courses on Lutheran theology and the Lutheran church, designed to prepare you for the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation in 2017. You will find these courses where you see the 500 icon.

Classes meet on the Luther Seminary campus during five consecutive Mondays from noon-2 p.m and 7-9 p.m. All courses will meet in the Olson Campus Center at 1490 Fulham Street, Saint Paul, MN 55108.
