Since many of our adult Sunday School classes take a break in the summer we are offering an All Adult Summer Sunday School beginning June 10 and continuing through July 22. Pastors Patrick, Mally, Phyllis and Ralph will be teaching Pastor’s Potluck–individual lessons on bible passages and topics that are favorites for them. Below is the schedule of topics discussed by TPC’s Clergy.
June 10 The Letter to Philemon Patrick McCoy
June 17 Presbys Sing the Bible Patrick McCoy
June 24 What Does Science Say About God? Phyllis Tippit
The problem for most of us lies not with science and God, but with science and our perception of God. During this session, we will talk about how science challenges those perceptions. Following is an article published in the New York Times titled “Must Science Conflict with Spirituality.” which references this topic. The article is based on the book “Searching for Stars on an Island in Maine” by Alan Lightman.
July 1 Being Christian in Today’s World Mally Baum
Pastor Mally will be discussing Being Christian in Today’s World. Christian confessions are written by church leaders wrestling with what it means to be faithful in a changing world. We will explore The Confession of Belhar, our denomination’s newest confession of faith, as a way to approach the interactions of faith and life today.
July 8 Sex and the Bible Phyllis Tippit
July 15 Hard Passages in the OT Phyllis Tippit
July 22 “Cousin America has run off with a Presbyterian Parson” Ralph Graham
As usual, we will continue the All Adult program through August.
