On February 24th we will begin a new seven-week adult study series. Sessions will be held on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:15 in the chapel. We will be studying Paul’s Letter to the Galatians.
During the Protestant Reformation and the Roman Catholic Council of Trent in Europe in the 1500s, it was Galatians and not the commonly used Letter to the Romans that was the most hotly debated book in the New Testament.
This course comes from the Kerygma Program and will be facilitated in this manner. There will be discussion and group presentation. Each participant is asked to read a brief assignment in the Resource book and the related word and scriptural references prior to each session. Those scriptural references, Basic Bible References in Kerygma language, are necessary to understanding every session. At the end of the assigned reading there will be several suggestions for further Research as well as questions for Reflections.
Everyone is invited to attend as many sessions as you are able. Your presence makes us better.
“How The Grinch Stole Christmas” was presented on Sunday morning, January 12, by the Kids Club, during the 10:00 a.m. worship service. Originally scheduled for December, the play had to be rescheduled due to illness. As usual, the kids did a great job and the congregation enjoyed singing along on some of the songs!
The Adult Study group for November/December tacked the book of James, using a study guide written by Dr. Carol Miller, a retired and redirected Methodist Minister.
Topics included The Mysteries of James, What Is Faith?, The Dangers in Ourselves, and Warnings and Instructions.
Our annual Thanksgiving Feast was held on Sunday, Nov. 16, immediately following the 10 a.m. worship service. Members were asked to bring a favorite Thanksgiving dish to share and invite friends or acquaintances who were spending Thanksgiving alone.
On Pumpkin Festival Weekend, October 25-26, the congregation held worship on Saturday evening at 5pm Saturday INSTEAD OF on Sunday morning. This was a special Halloween-themed service. Many participants wore costumes; children trick-or-treated through the sanctuary then went to Kids Club for Halloween activities.
