The following is an announcement
(advertisement) for a study group focused on the US Constitution and
hosted at a local church (not my own congregation nor one that I am
affiliated with). The group will use the curriculum prepared
by Hillsdale College in Michigan.
I am not endorsing this program or
the political ideology or interpretation of the Constitution that
may be presented in the group. I am NOT offering extra credit
for attending this group.
The certificate from Hillsdale
College is NOT a college credit and does not fill any requirement at
PC or at universities that you may transfer to. Nevertheless,
it may be of value to you as you try to understand the US
Constitution and its implications for your own political decisions.
