Pittsburgh Theological Seminary’s Office of Continuing Education will present “Restoring the Holy to Worship” Oct. 5-6, 2011. N. Graham Standish, pastor of Calvin Presbyterian Church in Zelienople, Pa., and David Bruce Smith, director of music at the same church, will lead the discussion.
For more than 20 years many of our congregations and denominations have been stuck in a battle between traditional and contemporary styles of worship. What we have lost in this battle is an emphasis on creating worship that helps people to encounter and experience God. This workshop will help participants assess their worship services. It will help them to discern steps to take to create worship that enables people to sense the Holy in worship in a way that transforms their lives each Sunday.
The program runs Wed., Oct. 5 from 1:00-4:30 p.m. and Thurs., Oct. 6 from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Registration fee is $85. Continuing education units are available.
