Theological Education Sunday is celebrated each September in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). This year, Theological Education Sunday is officially set for September 16, 2018, but you may celebrate theological education any time that is appropriate for you and your congregation. On this page, you will find links to bulletin inserts, a sample liturgy and other tools that help tell the story of how theological education enriches the ministry of pastors and the lives of congregations.
Resources are linked to each item below. You may click on each title and download each one. These items are undated.

Bulletin Inserts, front and back
Sample liturgy includes a bulletin announcement, hymn selections, scripture suggestions, a simple children’s sermon and prayers. If you’re looking for just the bulletin announcement, you can find that here. The liturgy is based on the lectionary for September 16, 2018, which is when Theological Education Sunday was officially observed in the PC(USA), but you may use it any time or use select elements from the sample liturgy.
