Ohmann Lecture Series (March 17 to April 7): Science & Religion

Dr. Peter H. Hobbie

 

Where do we stand as a Christian community on the relationship of science and religion, and what role do we play as Christians in the age of increasing scientific discovery? Is our faith a friend, a foe, or just an acquaintance of science? Listen to Dr. Hobbie’s lectures by clicking below:

 

March 17: What is the relationship between science and religion?

 

March 24: Astronomy—What is the relationship between science and religion in the understanding of our universe?

 

March 31: Biology—What is the relationship between science and religion in the understanding of creation and humanity’s role in nature?

 

April 7: What are the religious implications of scientific advances in our own time?

 

Dr. Peter H. Hobbie is retired from Presbyterian College, Clinton, S.C., as the George and Emma Cornelson Professor of the Christian Religion, where he taught courses in the History of Christianity, World Religions, Christian Doctrine, and the African-American Religious experience.

Youth & Children’s Learning Hour

Classes are held on Sundays, 9:00–9:45 a.m.

 

Preschool: Room 203 (main level, adjacent to the Nursery)

Our Preschool Class uses the Deep Blue Kids curriculum (Cokesbury), which provides age-appropriate, interactive lessons that incorporate Bible stories, music and video, and hands-on activities. Young children begin to learn about what it means to be part of the family of God.

 

Children (Grades K–4): Room 103 (lower level)

Our Children’s Class uses the Deep Blue Kids curriculum (Cokesbury), which teaches the Bible through a variety of approaches—stories, science experiments, arts and crafts, animated video storytelling, and active games—with the aim of helping children discover what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ today.

 

Youth (Grades 5 and up):  Room 101 (lower level)

Our Youth Class uses the re:form curriculum (from Sparkhouse, a division of 1517 Media, the publishing house of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America). re:form is based on a series of questions that youth have asked about what it means to be Christian; broad topic areas include the Bible, Christian beliefs, discipleship, Jesus, other faiths, and tough questions.

 

The Trinity Library

 

The library of Trinity Presbyterian Church exists to help all members of the Trinity family grow in their knowledge and understanding of the Christian faith, and to equip them to carry out the ministries to which God calls them.

 

All books and other resources in the library are available for checking out by members of the Trinity family. There is no charge for their use and no strict limits on the length of time they may be checked out.

 

The library seeks to make available books helpful in individual and group study, enrichment, inspiration, and encouragement. While most of these books are factual, works of fiction are not excluded. Particular emphasis is placed on subjects pertaining directly to the history and practice of the Christian faith and to the Presbyterian understanding of it.

 

Suggestions for the acquisition of books for use in group study are welcomed and will be adopted insofar as space and budgets permit.

 

Gifts of books, within the limitations of space and the time of volunteer librarians, will be gratefully accepted. A committee of Trinity members will consider and determine which books best fit and expand the purposes of the library. Books that cannot be housed in the library will from time to time be offered without charge to members of the Trinity family. When appropriate, other suitable homes will be sought.

 

Instructions for checking books in: 

Look in the back of the book for the circulation card, sign it, and stamp it with the date stamper, which should be three weeks from the time it is checked out. Place the card in the circulation tray in the middle of the book truck on the top shelf.

 

Instructions for checking books out:

Return it to the library and leave it in the basket on the left side of the library desk. There are no library fines, but in consideration of others, please return library materials when you have finished with them. If someone else requests a book checked out, you will be notified of this request after three weeks.
