We have begun studying the history of the Reformation, using a study titled, “Reformation Roots.” Each lesson has a short video and questions for discussion. There are 12 lessons in the material, and we will spread them out over the fall and into 2018. The class meets following worship on December 3rd. After a long holiday break, we will resume the class on January 7th. Thank you to all who are sharing in the leadership of this class.

Sundays after worship and Wednesdays at 6 PM we will study the history of the Reformation, “Reformation Roots.” Each lesson has a short video and questions for discussion. There are 12 lessons in the material, and we will spread them out over the fall and into 2018. Sid G. is coordinating the teachers and lessons. The first date of each will be determined very soon.
Did you notice the booklets in the booklet rack at the back of the sanctuary? There are some new ones as well as some old favorites. Next time you have a few minutes, take a look and choose one to read.
The Tuesday morning bible study is working its way through the 2nd letter to Timothy. Come join us at 10AM on Tuesdays as we discuss and learn from this letter.
The Wednesday evening Bible study is now studying the Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis. Each letter offers new material to discuss. Books are available from the church or you may purchase your own. In February we will study letters 2-5.
Sunday school is happening for the children during Sunday worship! And we can use some volunteers to be the extra adult in the room on Sundays. Contact Pastor Amy or Tamara D. in the office to be added to the rotation. No preparation required. You will join the children following the children’s sermon.
If you are willing to volunteer as the extra adult in the nursery or the Sunday school classroom, please contact Pastor Amy and complete a background check. We are looking to double our number of volunteers so that once Sunday school begins we have adequate coverage in both rooms. Our child protection policy requires two adults in any room where there are children.
The class will meet Sundays in the back classroom. Children and teachers will be dismissed from worship to their class after the scripture readings. As we get ready for the new school year, we are looking to increase our pool of teachers and assistants for the elementary aged Sunday school class. The goal is to start classes on September 25th. Please contact Pastor Amy if you’re interested in being part of the rotation. Teachers plan the lesson, assistants are the extra adult in the room for risk management purposes.
November 1 – This is the final class for Alan Beasley’s study of C.S. Lewis’ book, A Grief Observed. Come join Alan and the class as they conclude their time together.
November 8, 15, 22 and 29th - Doug Daniel will resume his class on “the Bible in Historical Context.” Come and learn the difference it makes to our understanding of Scripture when we know what else was happening in the world when these events were recorded for us.
On Sunday, September 20, we bade farewell to our childcare attendant, Tamara M. She provided excellent care to our children this past year and we are grateful for her service. Going forward, we will be relying on volunteers from the congregation to assist in the childcare room approximately once a month, along with a parent of one of the children in the room. If you have a heart for helping our children, please prayerfully consider joining our rotation of childcare volunteers. Let Pastor Amy know if you're interested or have questions about this.
