Who Are We? What Do We Believe?
Sundays, April 30 & May 7, 14 at 10:00am

The Constitution of the Presbyterian Church (USA) includes 11 confessional statements. These statements date from the first century A.D. to present times. They were most often written in times of controversy or change when the church felt the need to declare to its members and to the world who and what it is, what it believes and what it resolves to do.

This Sunday we begin a four-week study of the three most recent additions to the Book of Confessions, Confession of 1967, Confession of Belhar, and the Brief Statement of Faith.

The Confession of 1967 came out of the radical societal changes of the 1960's. The Confession of Belhar arose from the pain of Apartheid in South Africa. The Brief Statement of Faith was adopted in 1983 when the Northern and Southern Presbyterian churches were reunited to form PC(USA).

May 7: The Confession of Belhar, Chapters 4 and 5 from the Race and Reconciliation Workbook, Leader: Eric Wendorff, Covenant member
