The Rev. Nadine Hundertmark, interim pastor of First Presbyterian Church, leads a brief Adult Education Series, “God’s Gift of Time.”
Two Wednesday evenings will be devoted to how on how we spend, make, waste, organize, cherish and honor time. The program takes place on Jan. 30 and Feb. 6, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
East Brooklyn Congregations and the Daily News are co-sponsoring a Mayoral Candidates Forum this Thursday, Jan. 24. As of press time for this column, only a limited number of tickets were still available for the forum, taking place at St. Paul Community Baptist Church in East New York.
According to event organizers, EBC leaders are expected to carefully question the candidates based on the organization’s experience with the issues of education, housing and security, and use each candidate’s responses to frame those issues during the next mayoral term.
East Brooklyn Congregations is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1980, whose members are religious congregations, schools, and home and voluntary associations. In turn, EBC is an affiliate of the wider Industrial Areas Foundation. Member organizations represent more than 15,000 active families in the neighborhoods of East New York, Bushwick, Brownsville, and Ocean Hill.
One of EBC’S member congregations is in western Brooklyn, though: Grace Church-Brooklyn Heights has been active for about 20 years.
