Perspectives Course Scholarship Info

If you are a member of a Shenango Presbytery church and are applying for the Presbytery scholarship to help with the cost of the Perspectives on the World Christian Movement course please use the code PBY100 when you register.  It will deduct a $100 payment at that time – however, it is NOT a guarantee of the scholarship.  The Mission Education Scholarship Form from the Presbytery office will need to be completed and accepted in order for that scholarship to be paid. If a form is not submitted, the payment will not be made and the student will owe the balance due.

Information on the course is available online at www.perspectives.org. Go to Classes, click PA on the US map, and then select the Grove City Class. Class begins Tuesday, Sept. 9th  and is open to the public. Jen Haddox of World Mission Initiative will be the instructor for the first lesson, The Living God is a Missionary God.

McClure Lecture

Join us for the annual W. Don McClure Lectures Mon., Sept. 29, and Tues., Sept. 30, 2014. Keynote speaker is Daniel Jeyaraj, professor of world Christianity and director of the Andrew Walls Centre at Liverpool Hope University in Liverpool, UK. These lectures and discussions, held in the Knox Room, Long Hall, are free and open to the public.

This year’s lectures will address the topic, “Engaging with God and the Gospel Cross-Culturally.” Where there is pain, the church should go, but when the church is in pain, where do we go? For the indispensable transformation of our communities of faith where differences, tension, conflict, and aching are felt, we will explore for the hope to heal and grow together in holiness under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
