Adult Forum – Decoding ‘The Da Vinci Code’

The Rev. Dr. Russell C. Sullivan, Jr., Pastor, Pine Street Presbyterian Church

Dan Brown’s popular book, The Da Vinci Code, was a publishing phenomenon several years ago. An exciting thriller, the book proposes several conspiracies based on church history. What’s truth and what’s fiction? Did the Emperor Constantine compile the Bible? Was Jesus married? Was Jesus divine? Did the church conspire to hide the truth? What you’ll get out of this forum is a ride through church history and the real basis of our beliefs. Purchase your own copy of The Da Vinci Code at the Welcome Center at the church.

Adult Forum – Rendering to Caesar: Christ, Culture, and Public Life

Dr. Dean C. Curry, Professor of Politics, Messiah College 

For two thousand years Christians have wrestled with the dilemma of what it means to be “in the world but not of the world.” In this three-part series, we will examine the different ways Christians have understood what it means to be a citizen of God’s kingdom as well as a citizen of the world. We will also see why a faithful presence in the world requires that we not remain silent about the connection between our most deeply held beliefs and the common good. Related issues to be explored include: the connection between Christianity and democracy, the blessing and limits of politics, the right and wrong way for individual believers and the Church to engage public life. Dr. Curry’s published writings include books and articles addressing issues related to global politics, war and peace, religion and public life, and  …  Wilt Chamberlain.

November 18

Introduction to the Enneagram

The enneagram is an ancient system that can help us understand human behavior. Having been used by spiritual guides for over 2000 years, this system describes nine personality styles with many variations. Although it is first and foremost a journey of self-discovery, learning this model can also increase understanding and harmony in our family relationships and with our work colleagues. It explores what motivates us, what we tend to avoid, how we react to stress, and when we are at our best. It challenges us, shows us our strengths and weaknesses, and offers a path for personal and spiritual growth.

Our presenters for this workshop are Ellen Kanagy, LCSW, and Rhonda Myers, LPC. Both are therapists at Samaritan Counseling Center in Lancaster, PA. Both have studied and learned from the enneagram for many years and found it to be a helpful tool personally and relationally. Ellen is also a former staff member of Kairos: School of Spiritual formation in Wernersville, PA, and a certified spiritual director through Kairos.

There is a $15.00 charge for the workshop. Register at the Welcome Center, or e-mail the church at Mail your check to Pine Street and annotate it “Enneagram Workshop.”

November 26

Adult Forum – Gospel Overture: The Christmas Story According to Matthew

The Rev. Dr. Russell C. Sullivan, Jr., Pastor, Pine Street Presbyterian Church

Themes found in the infancy narrative in Matthew are restated and reinforced throughout the body of the Gospel. As a result, the Christmas story can be understood as an overture to the Gospel, in much the same way that the music at the beginning of an opera introduces the themes that will be repeated in the body of the opera. Find out in Matthew’s version of Jesus’ birth what his main purpose is.


The musical ensembles at Pine Street present a broad mixture of classical, gospel, and even jazz every Sunday from September–May to help us lift our hearts and voices in praise to God. Rehearsing for two hours every Thursday evening, the choir’s dedication to great music in rehearsals, services, and performances, is inspirational to all who hear them.

The Church School Singers

Children in grades K through 5 are encouraged to make Church School Singers a part of their regular Church School experience each week. A group of dedicated adult volunteers rotate to teach the children our best-loved church and Bible songs, like Jesus Loves Me, Father Abraham, Hallelu Hallelu Hallelujah, and more. These songs were a part of many of our faith formation, teaching us about the church, the Bible, and the world. We want to pass these songs down to the next generation, so each teacher spends time each week making this music part of the children’s lives. All children are welcome!

Meets at 8:45 a.m.
Sunday Mornings

For Grades k-5

The Chancel Choir is Pine Street’s primary choral organization and leads worship each Sunday morning from September through May. They also lead special services such as the annual Christmas Music Sunday, Christmas Eve Candlelight Service, Ash Wednesday, Good Friday Tenebrae, Easter, and more. They often collaborate with other area choirs as well. They take on challenging repertoire that enhances worship at Pine Street each week. The Choir is like a family and have a lot of fun together, working on repertoire, vocal technique, musicianship, and spending time together outside of rehearsal as well.
