During the Program Year Adult Education Happens on Sundays at 10:15 am in Westminster Hall ~
Specific details for each program can be found below and in the Sunday Bulletins. Suggestions for future programs are welcomed. Please contact Jennifer Van Hook, Deannine Shipman or a committee member.
November 3: "Diversity and Creativity"
Rev. Dean Lindsey will lead an Adult Education discussion of the ways that diversity of background and experience may lead to richer, fuller insights and discoveries in a variety of fields. How might this awareness be relevant to the church? What are the possibilities? What are the limits?
November 10: “Out Of The Cold: The Present and Future of Homeless Care in State College”.
"Out of The Cold" (OOTC) is the church based rotating emergency homeless shelter that SCPC and others host during the winter months. In addition to providing warm meals, hospitality and a safe place to sleep on cold nights, OOTC has been growing and changing in big ways over the last 2 years. Join us as Katie Nurmi shares all about how this program has impacted the homeless, the challenges we are facing at the moment and our vision for the future. Come to Westminster Hall.
November 17: "Hymnody in the 21st Century"
What is the current state of hymnody? How did we get here? Where are we going? Join Ned Wetherald for a discussion of hymns ancient and modern as well as some singing (of course!).
November 24: "Welcoming Those at the Margins"
We continue our video series on Hospitality and the Stranger: Welcoming Those at the Margins. This week we ask, "What is the relationship between peace, justice and kinship?" Fr. Gregory Boyle of Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles talks about the relationship between kinship and the Kingdom. What keeps some out? What draws lines? Which side of these partitions does Jesus stand on? Come and watch this video and join in the discussion.
“The Advent People, Important Actors in the Story and
Behind the Story”
For the four Sundays of Advent, several leaders will be focusing on people who are part of the story of the coming Messiah. We will talk about what we know about these characters- from the Bible and history, how they have been portrayed and understood over time, and how we can relate to them today. We meet in Westminster Hall at 10:15 am.
