Theological Education/Seminaries Emphasis Sunday 2015

We are pleased to invite you to celebrate God's inspiring work in equipping our seminaries to educate and prepare Christian leaders to "do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God" (Micah 6:8). May these liturgical resources assist you in preparation for worship, prayer, meditation, and reflection. The Presbyterian Planning Calendar specifies Sunday, September 20th as the Lord's Day for recognition of this mission emphasis, yet you may choose an alternative date as customs dictate or circumstances require.
