This Lent, Pastor Lori will offer a more intense small group on Scripture–a DISCIPLE Bible Study short course on the New Testament. Beginning Tuesday evening, Feb 20 and running 8 weeks, this class will give folks an overview of the New Testament– the four Gospels, a number of Epistles and finishing with Revelation. In true DISCIPLE style it will request daily reading and reflection of participants but also promise new insights into the New Testament and foster deeper discipleship. Absolutely no knowledge of scripture is required–that’s what this course is for! If you are interested or need more info please contact Pastor Lori. (There will also be a day group meeting in Lent)
Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J.D. Vance
We will be discussing this book on Tuesday, January 23 at 7 PM in the Betts room of the church. Plan to read the book and come prepared to share your ideas and listen to others’. Light refreshments will be served.
The snow date is January 30.
Looking ahead.….though Christmas is just past, Lent is not that far away. Thinking about our Ash Wednesday supper……are there any soup chefs out there who would be willing and able to make a big pot of soup for that evening?…..and related: are there any yeast-bread bakers who would be willing and able to contribute to a festive coffee hour in early February in honor of Mardi Gras? Hot cross buns, donuts, fancy bread…..If you can help, please contact the church office.
With many thanks to all who took the time to carol with us last weekend!
Our current topic is The Gospel of Matthew. Coffee is always served!
