Stillman College Choir
March 10, 2019
Put Sunday, March 10 on your calendar for an exciting series of events with the highly acclaimed Stillman College Choir. The college, founded in 1875 in the segregated south, is a Historically Black Presbyterian College located in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. This unforgettable day will lift your soul and offer an opportunity to connect with many first-generation college students, most on need-based financial aid.
Events March 10
Adult Education, 9:15am, Fireside Room
John William Templeton, chair of the educational affairs committee of Stillman, and an expert on Black Presbyterians and the pre-Civil War abolition movement, will lead the adult education class in a discussion of that movement, its important California connections and its legacy.
Worship, 10:45am, Sanctuary
The Stillman Choir will enhance our worship by joining their voices with our musical resources. Raf Ornes is working with Stillman's Choral Director, Dr. Joquelyn Richardson, to create a very special worship service.
Lunch, noon, Lane Hall & Fireside Room
The congregation will share a meal with our visitors in Lane Hall & the Fireside Room.
Concert, 3pm, Sanctuary
The Stillman Choir will share a musical interpretation of Dr. Martin Luther King's "Letter from a Birmingham Jail." This is particularly timely as the Presbyterian Church USA considers adding Dr. King's "Letter" to our official Book of Confessions and as issues of racism continue to haunt our country.
Please note -
THE CONCERT IS FREE, BUT STILLMAN'S NEEDS ARE GREAT.
WE HOPE EACH ATTENDEE WILL MAKE A GENEROUS DONATION TO SUPPORT STUDENT SCHOLARSHIPS AND TRIP EXPENSES, EITHER ONLINE OR WHEN THE PLATE IS PASSED.
