Full and Fair Funding for Pennsylvania Public Schools

 

What can be done?  On February 12th at 7:30 PM at Glenside UCC, Cecily Harwitt, Statewide Campaign Director for POWER – Philadelphians Organized to Witness, Empower and Rebuild will speak to us about the formation of Metro POWER, an organization in the Philadelphia suburbs which will be focusing on the full and fair funding issue.   A mass meeting for Metro Power is scheduled for March 12.  



Come for Ash Wednesday with other Philly UCC Folks

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 18.  On Ash Wednesday the pastor marks our foreheads with ashes as a reminder to keep the 40 days of Lent as a time of reflection and turning toward God.  One year we had a service together with Lighthouse Fellowship and we all appreciated the energy a larger group brought to worship. This year we will share this service at 7:00 PM with Woodcrest UCC at their church at the corner of Thouron and Mt. Pleasant just over Cheltenham Avenue in Philadelphia. They have a wonderful gospel choir and our choir will sing too. You may want to car pool from Glenside UCC to help with parking.   

 

Serious Answers to Hard Questions

This winter as part of adult Christian Formation classes, we are taking a look at some challenging topics of faith. Everyone is welcome to join the discussion, whether you have been attending since the beginning or just want to listen to one topic.  The class involves a short video lecture each Sunday morning by a leading theologian, followed by a focused discussion of the topic.  No pre-work or reading is required; all you need to do is show up!  Future topics include: Religion and Science, Evangelism and Tolerance, Resurrection, and others.  Come join the discussion Sunday mornings.
