Adult Faith Study

NOTE:  Adult study has been moved to March due to weather complications.

“Embracing An Adult Faith” is an exciting, five-session adult formation resource for those seeking a richer understanding of issues in contemporary Christian practice and theology:  Who really was Jesus?  What is salvation?  How do we practice our faith?  How do we live in community?
The group will meet in the chapel each Tuesday from 7 to 8 pm beginning January 14.  Topic schedule is as follows:
March 11 – “God”
March 18 – “Jesus”
March 25 – “Salvation”
April 1 – “Practice”
April 8 – “Community”
You are welcome to attend some of the sessions if you are unable to attend every session.

Spring Potluck & Party

The Membership & Fellowship Board is sponsoring a “Think Spring” all-church celebration on Sunday, March 23, after church.  Following a potluck luncheon, there will be face painting for Kids’ Club kids and fun spring activities for the adults.  Hopefully this will encourage some spring sunshine and warm weather!

Study of Hinduism

Pastors Amy and Dennis will lead a three-week discussion on Hinduism beginning April 22 at 7pm in the chapel.  There will be presentations and stimulating discussions.  No reservations needed.  Details are in the March newsletter.

Thrift Sale

Our annual Thrift Sale will be held on Saturday, May 3 this year, due to Easter being so late.  We will also hold a silent auction for which donated items are being accepted by the Board of Mission and Society.

Bunco Rescheduled

Due to our harsh winter weather this year, Membership & Fellowship Board rescheduled Saturday night Bunco to Sunday morning, February 22, following the 10am worship service.  A good time was held by all; there were four tables in the rotation and many newcomers enjoyed learning the game.  Due to the limited time-frame we didn’t get through all three sets, but we did have the obligatory snack break between sets #1 and #2.

This was such a big hit the Board is going to schedule another Bunco ‘morning’ in the near future.

Annual Meeting

The Annual Meeting of Federated Church was held on Sunday, January 19, following the 10:00 am worship service.  Board chairs will reviewed their work from 2013 and new board members and church officers were elected and installed.  2013 Yearbooks were distributed with highlights of the year and the membership directory.
