Mission matters.  Race matters.
As our nation continues to grapple with the consequence of racial injustice, we as Christians need to have a truthful conversation with one another on how our understanding of race impacts the way we engage in God's mission. 

To all members and friends of First Presbyterian Church, 

For 4 Wednesdays in October (Oct. 7, 14, 21, & 28), everyone is invited to join in a virtual/online lecture series presented by Pittsburgh Theological Seminary.

Topics include :

  • October 7--Unlearning the Habits of Slaveholder Religion
    Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove delivers the lecture
    Comment from one of our viewers:  "Interesting food for thought that I nibbled on for several days"

  • October 21--Where Do We Go From Here?
  • October 27--Keys for Allies to Use Their Superpowers

Beginning at 7:30 p.m. each week, FPC will host a small group in the Social Hall to watch the live lectures together and discuss afterwards.  We will, of course, observe physical distancing guidelines and face masks are required.

You may watch the presentation from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary online from your home.  We also welcome anyone who would like to “zoom in” from home to participate in our discussions from FPC after the lecture.

If you’d like to be part of this lecture and discussion series, please call or email the church office.

There is no obligation for you to attend all 4 sessions and there is no cost.

Login information and instructions are forthcoming from the church office.
