Understanding U.S. Dominant Culture and Systemic Racism
and How the PCUSA is Wrapped in It

Saturday, September 30, 9:00 am – 3:30 pm
Presbyterian Church of Madison, 19 Green Avenue, Madison, NJ
U.S. society has a dominant cultural center which categorizes who and what is seen as "normal, good, and standard." This important workshop explores our socialization within this system and the role the PCUSA plays in it. It is sponsored by Crossroads Anti-Racism Organizing and Training in cooperation with the Presbyteries of Newton and Elizabeth and is open to all. For more information call the Presbyterian Church of Madison at (973) 377-1600. The cost is $10 for lunch. Registration deadline is Monday, September 25.

Seminar with Chris Boesel, MTS, PhD
Associate Professor of Christian Theology, Drew University
Sunday, October 15, 11:00 am, Halldorson Hall
Religious extremism is a timely, relevant, and sometimes controversial topic. Dr. Boesel will be sharing
his wisdom and experience with us as an academic, a theologian, and a Presbyterian. We’ll discuss the strengths and risks of different views in an atmosphere of openness to respectful dialogue and disagreement on all sides. Join us for what promises to be an enlightening, eye-opening experience.

Generations" is a new offering this fall, providing an opportunity for families and senior adults to forge new friendships and develop bonds with one another.  As a pilot project, we are looking for up to 10 families (with children at home) and 10 senior adults (65+) to participate, with an invitation extended at this time to those without grandparents or grandchildren in the local area. 
Once paired together, these three-generation, adopted "families" will join in several planned and informal events, including a mission project, sharing a meal, and going on an outing together. It all kicks off with a special get-to-know-you event on Sunday, Oct. 29 at 11:00 am.  A schedule conflict on this date does not preclude participation in the program which runs through the end of April, 2018. Please contact Pastor Tom tbrown@pcct-nj.org or Lucy Deutsch lucillehdeutsch@aol.com for more information.

The mission of adult education programs is to provide a supportive community that helps adults grow in faith.

Adult Education

Our Sunday morning speaker series provides a variety of topics for adult learning.  Recent presentations have included presentations on "Being Mortal" Screening & Discussion, Refugee Assistance, and Poverty in New Jersey.

Please check the Adult Education page for dates and topics.

 

Field Trips 

Over the past year, we have taken two field trips to New York City, visiting the Presbyterian Mission to the United Nations and the Museum of Jewish Heritage. Details about our upcoming trip to the New York Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular will be announced in the Events Calendar.  

Lunch and a Movie

Wednesdays at noon from Sept - May, Halldorson Hall. 

For those with free time during the day, this is a perfect opportunity for fellowship and discussion led by our Pastor, Ed Halldorson.  Each week, the group gathers to watch a segment from a film series and share their thoughts with one another.  

Bring your lunch - you'll quickly feel at home with this small and friendly group. Friends welcome. 

Bible Study

Thursdays, 9:30 – 11:00 am, Sept - May, Theos Room

This group meets during the school year. There is no need to be a Biblical scholar! Led by Rev. Halldorson.

Faith, Fellowship & Chocolate Book Club

This group is currently reading The Book of Joy written by the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu with Douglas Abrams.  In April 2015, Archbishop Desmond Tutu travelled to the Dalai Lama's home in Dharamsala, India, to celebrate His Holiness's eightieth birthday and to create this book as a gift for others. They looked back on their long lives to answer a single burning question: how do we find joy in the face of life's inevitable suffering?

Meets regularly throughout the school year.  Please contact the church office for more information on meeting times and location.
