Dreaming & Discerning (New Worshipping Community Event) @ First Presbyterian - Ste. Genevieve
Jan 28 @ 7:00 pm
Has God called you to breathe new life into a new community and in a new way? New Worshiping Communities are Spirit-led and initiated when a person hears God’s Song in a new key. Could you be that person? The New Worshiping Communities team is creating a confidential space where you can come and explore your call, God’s vision, and our desire to create new expressions of worshiping communities within the presbytery.
 If you are interested in exploring a call to become a new worshiping community leader, then join the presbytery’s New Worshiping Communities team for a discerning conversation on Tuesday, January 28 at 7 p.m. Directions to 160 S. Main St., Ste. Genevieve can be found here.

In Their Own Words Concert – The Power of Spirituals @ Ladue Chapel
Feb 16 @ 3:00 pm

In Their Own Words Concert – Sunday, February 16 at 3:00 p.m.  

“The Power of Spirituals” is an interactive event based on Eileen Guenther’s recently-published book In Their Own Words:  Slave Life and the Power of Spirituals.  In this program Guenther, a graduate of Kirkwood High School, combines first-person narratives from books written by those formerly enslaved, interviews conducted with them in the 1930s and her own commentary.  These narratives are interwoven with the singing of spirituals by guest soprano and St. Louis native Marlissa Hudson, our Ladue Chapel Choir, and the audience.  Many Americans have gaps in their historic and cultural education; this powerful music and the texts of this presentation not only shine a light on the events of the past, but also offer hope and reconciliation to present-day circumstances.
