Captivating classes bring in community
First Presbyterian Church of Honolulu will present a smorgasbord of subjects in its new series of Wednesday classes beginning next week at Koolau Golf Clubhouse.
Church members will share their expertise in computer basics, golf, financial planning, writing, Hawaiian history and other subjects during the five-week session. A psychiatrist will lecture on "Managing Your Moods," a marriage counselor will explore "What Do You Do After You Say I Do?" and there also will be classes on Christianity, Scripture, prayer and hula as expression in worship.
Separate programs for elementary, middle and high school youngsters will be under way while the adult classes meet. There will be child care for young children.
The Rev. Sim Fulcher, associate pastor, said the program aims to bring people from the community to the Koolau Golf Club, which the church has occupied since last year. A shuttle will operate from the church's former location in Makiki.
The program will begin at 5:30 p.m. each Wednesday with 10 elective classes offered. A 6:30 p.m. dinner break will include a brief worship and music gathering. At 7:30 p.m. a second round of courses will be offered. People can choose to attend one class only.
The cost of $6 per session covers a buffet dinner in the ballroom. The cost for children will be $4, and $2 for the child-care crowd.
Information brochures are available at the golf clubhouse/church. Call 532-1111 for information.
