Past Learning Opportunities at South Church
Muslim Coalition Panel Series
South Church hosted the local Muslim Coalition for a series of panels with a range of topics. Discussion themes included “Women and Islam,” “What is Islam,” and many more. The panel series provided a space for learning and discussion, and hope of eradication of the fear of the unknown that causes so much hate in our world today.
Lenten Soup Series
Rev. Allen hosts a three-week soup and film series during the Lenten Season. Usually held on Monday nights from 6:00-7:30 PM. Participants sign up to take turns bringing soup, bread, fruits and / or desserts to share. A movie or clips of one are shown over the course of the three weeks, and each clip is discussed in a round-table style.
