Education

Our Adult Education Forums are an opportunity to learn about a variety of topics. Often, they are an opportunity to study scripture in a depth greater than what a sermon allows, but sometimes they are an opportunity to learn about a timely topic of interest to us all.

During the summer months Adult Education Forums will be held Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m.

June 2 – Seeing What God is Up To

The Rev. Cheryl D. Galan, Interim Executive Presbyter, Presbytery of Carlisle will lead us in this study.With all of that we’ve been through in the past year, living with uncertainty has become our new normal. We barely get our bearings before the situation changes again. For churches, ordinarily accustomed to the stability of familiar routines and the comforts of Christian community, the disruptions caused by the pandemic heighten our sense of vulnerability. With a pastoral transition on the horizon, both anxiety and anticipation may be high, as you wonder what comes next. What might we learn from the biblical witness and from each other, that can help us now? Through a guided conversation we’ll look for evidence of God at work in our current situation, that we may access the wisdom and peace that allow us to move forward, in hope. Rev. Cheryl D. Galan is the Interim Executive Presbyter with Carlisle Presbytery. A graduate of Grove City College, Cheryl formerly served the Derry, Faith and Market Square congregations as a Christian Educator. After receiving the M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary, Cheryl served as a pastor with congregations in New York, Kansas, and Wisconsin and as the Transitional Leader of the Presbytery of Elizabeth in New Jersey. She and her husband Jack live in Camp Hill. Cheryl’s sense of call to presbytery leadership is grounded in her deep love for the church and strong hope that God is transforming congregations for the sake of Christ’s mission in the world.

SEEING WHAT GOD IS UP TO


June 9 – The Pilgrimage: Hiking the Camino de Santiago

A year after his retirement, The Rev. Doug Brouwer walked the Camino across northern Spain, a 500-mile pilgrimage dating back to the ninth century. Doug will tell about his experience (with slides) and explore the meaning of pilgrimage today, the inner and the outer journeys. Rev. Douglas J. Brouwer was ordained to the ministry of word and sacrament at Pine Street in September 1980 and was an associate pastor for five years. He then served churches in Illinois, Michigan, and Florida, and retired in 2018 from the International Protestant Church in Zürich, Switzerland. A memoir about his 40 years of ministry, Chasing After Wind: A Pastor’s Life, will be published later this year. Doug can be contacted at 17260 South Street, Holland, Michigan 49424.

June 16 – The Art of the Memoir (or Why You Shouldn't Write Memoir)

One of the most popular literary forms today has its roots in Christian faith. St. Augustine wrote a memoir—The Confessions—which continues to be the model on which memoirs are written. Doug will explore the history of the memoir, sample a few of the best, and offer encouragement to anyone who wants to write a personal story. The Rev. Doug Brouwer will lead this forum. Rev.
