New Sunday School Class! Pastor Dyan is leading a new Sunday School class called Coffee in the Library and, of course, it involves coffee and meets in the library! The class will be using Kathie Lee Gifford’s book and video The Rock, the Road, and the Rabbi, taking a virtual journey to Bethlehem, Nazareth, Capernaum, Galilee, the Mount of Olives, and Jerusalem. This class meets during the normal Sunday School hour, so come and join us!
Dell LaCoss is leading a Disciple 1 class that meets on Tuesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. and will begin with the New Testament. The New Testament piece will be finished by Christmas and will give you a wonderful overview of the New Testament. This is a great opportunity for anyone wanting to grow in their knowledge of scripture and would also be a good ‘refresher course’ for those who have done Disciple 1 in the past. If you are interested, please call the church office.
Maundy Thursday is a day that, in the life of the church, is all about the table. It is a day when we remember the last supper that Jesus shared with his beloved disciples and the words that he left them with, ‘love one another as I have loved you.’ It is a day when we ponder the events after the meal, when Jesus knelt to wash the feet of his friends … the one who would betray him, and the one who would deny him. It is a day filled with meaning and centered on a table of love, forgiveness, hope, and hospitality. We hope that you will join us as we gather to remember this piece of our sacred story. The service will be held this Thursday evening, April 18, 2019, at 6:30 p.m. in our church sanctuary.
