Learning opportunities

SEMINARY SCHOLARSHIPS

An educated clergy and laity has been an important part of the Reformed tradition ever since John Calvin’s Geneva, and Christian education has long been one of the core values of this church. Through bequests to the Legacy Fund by Jessie White Hotson, Gertrude Mai Marks, and others and by gifts in memory of Edward L. McGuire, Jr., Ruth W. Knighton, Ruth and Edwin Staman, and others, First Presbyterian Church has been able to give scholarships to many seminary students over the years to assist them on the path to becoming Presbyterian pastors. Preference is given to Presbyterian students attending Presbyterian-related theological schools. Applications must be received no later than June 15, 2017. Every effort will be made to make decisions about the grants by July 1, 2017. Download your seminary scholarship application HERE - you may fill out the form digitally or print it out. Submit your application by mail to:  Scholarship Committee, First Presbyterian Church, 900 Jordan Street, Shreveport LA 71101 or email to Lynn Homza at lchtcu@gmail.com or Susan Whaley at swhaley@fpcshreveport.org. Please call the church office at 318-222-0604 if you have any questions. 

UNIVERSITY OF FIRST PRESBYTERIAN

University provides short term courses for adults wanting an in-depth and balanced education on a variety of issues. Believing that “all conversations are theological” courses will be fresh, relevant and topical to the realities of our world today. Several sessions are held during the year. Courses include everything from book discussions, lectures from people in our community, cultural presentations, classes ranging from journal-keeping to watercolor painting, as well as courses in wellness. Courses will be taught by experts in the field of study and are open to the entire community.

SPENCER AND FLORA MURRAY LECTURE SERIES

Over many years, First Presbyterian Church has brought a host of distinguished authors, preachers, teachers, and theologians to Shreveport for the church’s annual lecture series. Funded through gifts to the Legacy Fund by Audrey Bollinger Westbrook and others, the lecture series was re-named The Spencer and Flora Murray Lectures in 2006 in honor of Dr. Spencer Murray, a retired associate pastor of this church, and his late wife Flora, whose inquiring minds were prime examples of what our lecture series seeks to be about:  faith seeking understanding.
