“Scripture Preview”


 Scripture for discussion and study on November 2:  Joshua 3:7-17

For study on November 9:  Matthew 25:14-30


Do you want more time to delve into the Scriptures we use at Sunday worship?

Following the second worship service each week, you get a sneak peak of the Scriptures we’ll use in the following week’s worship service at a small discussion group, led by various competent facilitators.

The group will be open for questions, personal reactions, and varied perspectives on the readings. Snacks and drinks will be provided.

All are welcome to attend, so please join in! We’ll meet at 12:15 PM in the church library on Sundays. Contact Pastor Karla for more info. See you there!

Bible Challenge has begun

Read the Bible YEAR

It’s not too late to join the others who have committed to read the whole Bible in one year!

The Bible Challenge officially began on October 13th. Participants in the Challenge will check in with each other daily by email and will meet monthly to celebrate milestones and share thoughts. The first monthly gathering will be on November 11th (Veteran’s Day) at 11:30AM at the church.

We’ll be using the book The Bible Challenge: Read the Bible in a Year, edited by Mark Zabriskie (available on Kindle or at the Episcopal Bookstore) as a starting point, but it’s not necessary to buy the book.

For more information and to receive a schedule of readings, contact Mary Latham. All are welcome!

The 12 areas of greatest concern highlighted in our Spring 2014 meetings covered a broad spectrum: from Homelessness and Poverty and Reconciling Ministries to Race and Spirituality and Global Peace. Several areas already have small group ministries to join, and others are ripe for a new startup. Please consider joining this effort. We need you!
