Since August of 2016, The Rev. Denise Anderson and the Rev. Jan Edmiston, the co-moderators of the 222nd General Assembly of the PC(USA), have been inviting congregations to read and discuss the book:
So in response to that invitation, the next series in the
“Just As I Am” Church School class will be an exploration of
Waking Up White
led by Rev. Andy Acton and Rev. Jennie Sankey,
Sundays March 5-April 30
Each Sunday we will explore one of the nine sections of the book and seek to understand ourselves in the story of race in our nation and world.
We’ve secured some books for the class which can be purchased for $10; please contact Andy or Jennie if you would like them to hold a copy for you. There is a limited amount. You may also buy a copy on your own from a local bookstore, order online for $10-12 or download the Kindle version for your reading device for $9.
See you at 9:40 am on Sunday March 5, in Room A91!
This past Sunday during church school, children, youth, their families and church school teachers gathered in the Fellowship Hall to prepare for Lent, which begins on Ash Wednesday, March 1. After spending some time learning about the meaning of Ash Wednesday and Lent, participants visited several interactive stations to pick-up and make items that can be used along with their Family Lenten Devotional, i.e. Lent-In-A-Bag! And they worked on a couple of projects that will make their way into worship during the Lenten Season.
Our “Just As I Am” church school class will be offering “Presbyterian 101” on Sundays through February 19. Our pastors, a few guest and member speakers will be teaching this engaging 6-week series where we will explore what Presbyterians believe and how those beliefs are expressed in our worship life together at PHPC.
We intended to begin last Sunday January 8 with an exploration of the “Call To Worship and The Triune God” but had to cancel class because of the inclement winter weather. But you can catch up on that lesson by clicking below on the video below. Join us on Sunday January 15 as member and theologian Brian Powers leads the class in a study of “The Prayer of Confession/Assurance of Pardon and Sin.” At 9:40 am in Room A91 in the west wing of the church building.
Many thanks to Rev. Jennie Sankey, associate for Christian Education and the CE Committee for their incredible vision for the summer! It was a sacred experience cherished by all! Here’s some highlights…
