CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The Lay Academy of Religion speaker series continues with retired pastor Douglas Heidt at 4 p.m. Sunday at First Presbyterian Church, 16 Leon Sullivan Way.
The theme is "The Love That Will Not Let Us Go." Heidt will explore a different way to talk about God and a more user-friendly expression of faith, in light of the growing numbers of people leaving all branches of the church and the corresponding increase in the percentage of people unaffiliated with any religion.
Lay Academy sessions are free and open to everyone. For more information, call the church at 304-343-8961.
