Adult Forums – Fellowship Hall

Antisemitism: the World’s Oldest Hate Crime

Recent events show antisemitism has raised its ugly head in our society. On the first three Sunday of February, join Neil Leifert, the Director of the Center for Holocaust and Jewish Studies at Penn State Harrisburg, as he explains its origins. Dr. Russell Sullivan, Pastor of Pine Street, will conclude the series on February 23.

February 2 – “Overview of Antisemitism” – What are the origins of Christian and-Judaism? How id this develop into racial antisemitism in the 19th century? As we journey into the 20th century, we’ll note the significance of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion and the work of Henry Ford and his antisemitic publication, The International Jew.

February 9 – “The Jewish Enemy” – Nazi propaganda vilified “World Jewry” as a “clear and present danger” to German survival. What was their motive for genocide and the Holocaust?

February 16 – “Lingering Ideology” – Jewish conspiracies and the Holocaust denial abound in our world, and antisemitism masks in the guise of anti-Zionism. How can we understand these phenomena?

February 23 – “Does God Only Have One Blessing?” – Dr. Sullivan will propose that we have read the relationship between Christians and Jews incorrectly for centuries. Can we read the Christian story in a new way? How can we counteract antisemitism?

Ensembles

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

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.
