Reproductive Justice

Expanding Our Understanding & Understanding Our Calling

May 21, May 28, June 4

Rooting us in our denominational history and theological callings, this three-week course outlines the distinctions between reproductive “health,” “rights,” and “justice;” opens awareness of reproductive oppressions; offers opportunities to learn about ourselves and each other as sexual and reproductive beings; and equips us to move forward, out into the world with integrity and vision regarding our calling as disciples and our work for reproductive justice.

Lectionary Studies

April 23 – May 14

In this four-week class, we will journey together through the Scripture readings prescribed by the Revised Common Lectionary for the second through fifth Sundays of Easter. Featured texts include Acts of the Apostles, 1 Peter, and Psalms, and when possible, we will focus our attention in depth on the texts selected by the CPC preacher for a given Sunday. In addition to introducing those gathered to the worlds behind each text, the class invites members to ask several questions of the text. What assumptions are at play? Where can we identify parallels with contemporary society and church? How might we preach this text? Please join us as we consider God’s Word as a community of interpreters!

Meet Katy Bedford!

Dear Central Presbyterian Congregation,

I am extremely excited to begin this position as your interim Director of Christian Education. After learning some about you from various leaders in the church, I cannot wait to meet all of you! It is such an honor to be a part of your faithful and vibrant community.

Here is a little bit about me. I am a Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) baby. My family joined First Presbyterian Church in Georgetown, TX 23 years ago and we have been there ever since. I learned early of the importance of growing up in a supportive and nurturing church community. In taking this position at CPC, I am following in the footsteps of my mother, who is the Christian Education Director at FPC in Georgetown. I shadowed her as a kid and helped her when I could. I value these moments immensely.
