“Instead of the Church coming to us, we’re going to the Church!” said Union Presbyterian Seminary Dean Stan Skreslet, Richmond campus. “We’re excited about Union on the Move! because it’s a way to engage personally and equip many local congregations at the same time.”
On October 18 President Brian Blount, along with seven faculty from UPSem will travel to First Presbyterian Church of Norfolk to present a series of workshops to laity throughout the Tidewater area. Then, on October 19, the same professors will go out into the surrounding communities to lead worship and offer Sunday morning seminars.
The Union on the Move Tidewater event is meant to be the first in a series that will provide opportunities for churches throughout North Carolina, Virginia, and Washington D.C. to engage with and learn from seminary faculty in their own places of worship.
The event is free and open to the public. Lunch provided. Registration is encouraged by October 15:
