August 2018 Adult Education Offerings

Worship Focus Group on August 5 The two worship vitality teams and the Worship Commission invite you to join us on August 5 in the Gathering Space following the morning worship service. Light refreshments will be provided. Please plan to be part of the discussion—feedback on our summer worship experiences, dreaming and visioning future worship experiences at PUCC!


The Parkway Sustainability Seekers will sponsor a two-part adult education opportunity on August 12 and 26, presenting the film Racing Extinction, an eco-thriller that examines mankind’s role in mass extinction. Filmed by an Academy Award®-winning film crew using state-of-the-art equipment, the documentary attempts to change how we understand endangered species and mass extinction. Racing Extinction was well reviewed when originally shown on the Discovery Channel and has been described as both “sobering and hopeful.” The film and discussion will begin at 11:15am in the Heritage Room.

Jane Biehl, PHD, is a frequent visitor to Parkway. She is the sister of member Susan Moellering and her biggest fan! Jane’s home church is Congregational United Church of Christ, an open and affirming congregation in Canton, Ohio.

Jane has had several careers including librarian, counselor, college teacher and writer. Jane was born hard of hearing and is now profoundly deaf. Her faithful hearing ear dog, Sita, has been partnered with her for 11 years.

Jane will be speaking on August 19th about 2 of her latest books. Paw Prints On My Soul; Lessons of a Service Dog, is a devotional about all the wonderful teachings Sita has given her. Unfortunately, Sita will not be there because she is too old to travel. Jane was diagnosed with an incurable bone marrow cancer in 2010 and her second book is Life is Short – Eat the Donut: Insights from my Cancer Journey. Jane will be bringing books with her and will autograph them for anyone who is interesting in buying them. She will speak about both of her books and how both Sita and the cancer have profoundly affected her faith journey.
