Register now for Crossroads workshop, “Introduction to Systemic Racism,” Saturday, March 11, 8:30-5:00 p.m. at Chestnut Hill Presbyterian Church, https://presbyphl.org/northwest-region-hosts-introduction-systemic-racism-workshop/ Four of us from Summit attended the workshop last fall, and found it helpful and interesting. We’re hoping to gather at least three more folks from Summit so we can work as a team to deepen our understanding and advocacy around racial justice. It’s being organized by the NW Region of the Presbytery; talk to Cheryl, MK, Marta Zehner or Delores Paulk for more information! $25, lunch included. There will also be worship and it will be presented in a theological context.
Confirmation Class begins for Middle Schoolers
Confirmation class begins for 6-8th graders on the first Sunday of Advent, November 27th. Ben Brandt and Jared Whalen are lead teachers (with others helping). The class will meet during the Sunday School hour, and this winter will focus on the book of Luke as a way to explore questions of faith while gaining a deeper understanding of the life, death and resurrection of Christ. Thank you to Ben and Jared for taking on this commitment. We are excited! Cheryl Pyrch and MK Dean will be working with High School students beginning in January.
