Summer Lecture Series 2017

During the summer at Glenn, our adult Sunday School classes gather together for a combined lecture series. Our series this year is "Theology of Hymns: Songs that Shape Us." We are excited to welcome another group of professors from Emory's Candler School of Theology to lead our summer sessions. We also welcome a couple speakers from around the university more broadly.
