German Worship Services
February 03 / March 03

First Presbyterian Deutsch

German Worship Services are led by Reverend Thomas Herwig, parish associate on the first Sunday of each month, unless otherwise indicated, at 11:00 a.m. in the Westervelt-Warner Chapel. An informal gathering with coffee and cookies follows each service.
 

About

Begun in December 2008, First Presbyterian Deutsch is a project not only for Germans, but also for those who speak and understand German, or who are simply interested in German culture and language.

In addition to worship, First Presbyterian Deutsch offers all pastoral duties including confirmation classes, pastoral care and hospital visitation, German-speaking children’s afternoons, topical discussion groups including Bible study groups and social and cultural activities.

Everyone is invited to take part in the planning Workgroup, which normally meets the Tuesday evening following a worship service at 7:00 p.m. at the church.
 
If you would like to be informed about further events with an email or a postcard, please contact the church office at (205) 752-3531.

Sustainable Mobility Forum: Optimizing and Integrating Urban Mobility Networks
February 05
Urban public transport is most appealing to city residents when it is planned and operated as a seamless, integrated system. Today’s problems in urban mobility are often not due to the lack of an infrastructural basis. Most cities in the US possess a public transport network, but it often services only a few major corridors, in turn leaving entire districts and considerable portions of the population in a ‘mobility desert’. Additionally, multi-modal transport networks (e.g. heavy rail, streetcar, and bus lines) are often fragmented and under-serviced and therefore unpredictable and unreliable. Metro areas spanning multiple counties are often burdened by a patchwork of transit systems operating in isolation from one another. That is why one major challenge for US cities looking to cultivate a culture of public transport lies in the optimization and integration of their urban mobility networks.
What are the benefits of participating?
  • Shape the discourse in your city – discuss the future of public transit with local stakeholders
  • Help make your city a hub for economic growth & better quality of life
  • Engage with international experts – discover how urban mobility is managed abroad
  • Become part of a transatlantic exchange – learn about the follow-up delegation trip to Germany
Save the date! February 8, 2019!
