Second-Ponce de Leon University (SPdLU)

You are invited to develop a richer understanding of God and His word with SPdL University (SPdLU), an in-depth study experience. Offerings include traditional lecture-based learning from SPdL staff and guest speakers, small group studies and experiences, and one-time workshops on topics of interest. Past guest speakers have included seminary professors from the McAfee School of Theology at Mercer University and representatives from our partner organizations. Small group activities have included in-depth study of books of the Bible, experiencing prayer in new ways, and book studies.

Current and Upcoming SPdLU Topics

Children’s Christmas Program
Wednesday, December 12 at 6 p.m. in the Chapel

In lieu of SPdLU, we will move to the Chapel after supper and hear our children’s choirs perform. Can you imagine being in Bethlehem the night Jesus was born? What would you have seen? What would you have heard? On Wednesday, December 12, join the children’s choirs on a musical adventure back to “That Night in Bethlehem” and relive the Christmas story from the perspectives of the people (and animals!) who were there. Join us for the familiar tale filled with wonder as only a child could tell it.

A Chapel Christmas
Wednesday, December 19 at 6 p.m. in the Chapel

We will worship in the Chapel on this last Wednesday night before Christmas. This intimate time of hope and expectation is open to all ages and will occur in place of SPdLU on this night.

There are no Wednesday PM activities on December 26 or January 2.
