In the fall of 1814, the First Presbyterian Church was formally chartered. On Fall Wednesdays in 2014, we will mark the occasion with celebratory dinners and lectures by the church’s leaders, past and present.

It all begins on September 10, when Senior Pastor Todd Jones will lecture on the ministry of Walter Courtenay, who served as pastor from 1944 to 1971. Our new Director of Food Service, Kim Rogers, will offer a menu that includes Herb Crusted Beef Tenderloin, Roasted Summer Vegetables, Mashed Potatoes w/Gravy, Yeast Roll, Salad Bar, and Tomato Basil Soup. A kids’ option will be provided as well, each week.

On the 17th, Ridley Wills, an elder at the Downtown Church and respected Nashville historian, will lecture on the ministry of John Todd Edgar, who served from 1833 to 1861. Dinner that evening will be Pork Tenderloin, Roasted Red Potatoes, Roasted Asparagus, Roll, Salad Bar, and Vegetable Soup.

And on the 24th, Senior Pastor Emeritus Bill Bryant will lecture on the years 1971-1994, which comprise his pastorate and that of Cortez Cooper. The menu includes Roast Beef, Mashed Potatoes w/Gravy, Roasted Green Beans, Steamed Corn, Roll, Salad Bar, and Chicken Noodle Soup.

Beginning October 1 a lineup of classes will be available which include: 1) The New Testament–led by Amy-Jill Levine, Vanderbilt University Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies; 2) Parenting Class–led by Jeremy Shapiro, LPC-M.A.P.C. at Daystar Counseling Ministries, Inc.; 3) Reading Eudora Welty Together–led by Associate Pastor Stuart Gordon; 4) FPC Stories Project–led by Brenda Geise, Coordinator of Older Adult Ministries; 5) Yoga–led by Executive Pastor Sam Cooper; and 6) DivorceCare–led by Pastor Sandra Randleman.
