The Adult Forum (meeting each Sunday at 9 AM) will journey through Lent with
biblical scholars and experts as they dive deep into some of the most meaningful
moments of history in a DVD-based Bible study. "The Last Days of Jesus"
From Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem, from the Last Supper to the Crucifixion,
to His glorious resurrection, this 6-session study provides a fantastic overview of 6 major events surrounding Jesus' Death and Resurrection
Christian Education for children will begin on Sunday, September 8 during the first part of the 10 AM service. They will meet in the Nave for commissioning of their teachers at the beginning of the service and then go downstairs for a team-building game, story and craft. They will return to join us again for the Peace.
News from the Sunday School
December 1 is the first Sunday of Advent. Throughout the four Sundays of Advent, children will have an opportunity to hear Advent stories and learn songs, make an Advent wreath, walk the Advent Spiral, build our classroom Nativity, and make cards and gifts to prepare for Christmas.
Our Saint of the Month will be Saint Nicholas of Myra (c.342). We will recognize him on Sunday, December 8, with a special act of devotion that we will share with the congregation, after the Peace.
For this year's Christmas Pageant, I have chosen a simple and traditional Nativity story. Rehearsals begin December 1, after church for 30 minutes. Children may bring their coffee-hour snacks downstairs, and we will plan while eating together before practicing the play.
Our performance will take place on December 24, at 3 PM, during the All Saints Family Service.
With heartfelt gratitude,
