Upcoming Events

VETERANS DAY (November 11) tolling of bells at 11:11 a.m. Gather in the balcony at 10:55 a.m. with Deacon Debbie Romano for prayer and then tolling. 
 
SUNDAY SEMINAR. (Next seminar, November 17) We are using Richard Rohr’s 2019 book, The Universal Christ: How a Forgotten Reality Can Change Everything We See, Hope For, and Believe, to explore the roots of the universal Christ in the rich history of the Christian tradition. Rohr says, “‘I believe in Jesus Christ’ isn’t one belief statement but two. Jesus is God individual and personal; Christ is God everywhere and universal.” Join us for this important and illuminating series in the Fellowship Hall at 9:45 a.m. All are welcome. Childcare provided.
 
MORE LIGHT THANKSGIVING DINNER, Sunday, November 17, 6:00 p.m. Fellowship Hall. SPC’s More Light group is hosting a Thanksgiving dinner this year to celebrate and welcome our LGBTQIA family and their allies. Along with the entire congregation, we will be issuing a special invitation to our Eastern Panhandle Youth Alliance youth and their parents, leaders and members of the churches that participated in the Pride service at SPC during Pride Week last June, Shepherd University’s Connections students and our LGBTQIA immigrant friends from Morgantown. It should be great fun and good community. It is more important than ever for allies to show their support of LGBTQIA persons who are experiencing daily violence and violation of their human and civil rights. Turkey provided, please bring a side dish to share. It is always a fun evening, so bring yourselves and others for a festive time! If you have questions, email: office@ShepherdstownPresbyterian.org.
