When you are ready to join, you can fill out a membership card located in our pews or you may contact one of the pastors.

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.

REFORMATION IN SCOTLAND - 500 YEAR ANNIVERSARY TOUR

We have planned a trip to Scotland in 2017, the year of the 500th anniversary of the Scottish Reformation, when Martin Luther submitted his 95 Theses for reform of the Roman Catholic Church. The Discovering Scotland Tour will take place from May 30-June 7, 2017, a specially arranged travel pilgrimage for First Presbyterian Church-Shreveport with Rev. Dr. Chris Currie as our group leader.

To prepare for our travel pilgrimage, Chris Currie has put together a reading list that will be incorporated into book discussions over the course of the next year leading up to our departure. These books are listed below so you can a head start on your travel reading and preparation. 
 
J.D. Mackie, A Penguin History of Scotland
Arthur Herman, How the Scots Invented the Modern World
Alistair Moffat and Jim Wilson, The Scots: A Genetic Journey
Glenn S. Sunshine, The Reformation for Armchair Theologians

We see this trip as an opportunity to travel together, to learn, to grow spiritually, and to see and experience the ruggedness and beauty of Scotland, the mother country of many of our own Presbyterian roots and identity. You may link to a detailed brochure about the trip HERE. Registration for the trip is now closed.
