Theological Education Resources

Theological Education Sunday is celebrated each September in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). This year, Theological Education Sunday is officially set for September 20, 2020, but you may celebrate theological education any time that is appropriate for you and your congregation.

Resources are linked to each item below.

Videos

For the first time, we’re providing a recorded video sermon, minute for mission, benediction and scripture reading that can be used during this time of virtual worship.

Select individual videos below or view all of the videos here.

Scripture Reading Minute for Mission

PowerPoint Slides

We’re also providing PowerPoint slides that you can use, as many churches are more reliant on screens for virtual worship and may find this more helpful than a printed bulletin insert. We’ve provided them in the two most common PowerPoint formats and you can download below.
