The adult education programming is designed to provide educational settings that meet the spiritual needs of the members of our diverse congregation; to give the congregation opportunities to deepen and broaden their faith by study of the Bible and the theology of the Presbyterian Church, and to encourage them to apply their understanding to the moral and social issues of contemporary society, as mandated by our denomination.

Ken will be sharing his experiences and insights from his most recent trips to South Sudan and South Africa, reflecting on the benefits and opportunities to be found in mission partnerships. While in South Sudan Ken was exploring the possibility of a three way partnership involving Pittsburgh Presbytery, Malawi and South Sudan.
