*Women's Study Group - Wednesday Mornings James Moore has provided a fresh look at how we can serve God and our neighbor in his book "God Was Here and I Was Out to Lunch." Often, we're too preoccupied to notice the needs of those around us and to sense God's ever present grace. Reverend Moore offers easy steps to improve our ability to change our lives from "Me Centered" to "Other Centered."
Please join us for this six-week study at 9:30 a.m. in the parlor. If you have any questions, please contact Mary Lou Hanna at 627-4360 or Sue VanKampen at 627-2360.
*Time of Prayer We have been created for intimate conversation with God. Come for a time of quiet reflection and prayer with our heavenly Father.
When: Tuesdays Time: 1:30 – 2:00 p.m. Where: Church Chapel
Short Stories by Jesus Began October 1st, Tuesday evenings, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. in the church parlor Jesus used parables as an important part of his teaching ministry. Parables are meant to draw in the hearer with the familiar, provide a twist, and then a challenge. Author Amy-Jill Levine "takes the readers back in time to how the original Jewish audiences heard the stories. With this revitalized understanding, she interprets these moving stories for the contemporary reader, showing how the parables...still challenge and provoke us two thousand years later." Short Stories by Jesus, a seven-week bible study on the parables of Jesus, will be led by Pastor Cindy this fall. The study will be held on Tuesday evenings, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. in the church parlor Beginning October 1st. Sign-up sheets are posted on the bulletin board by the office. Deadline for sign-up is September 10th. Please see the September issue of the Chimes for more details information.
*James Study Do your Monday actions reflect your Sunday worship? James knew that a life of faith is all about actions that do not save the Christian, but that mark a person as a Christian. Come study with Max Lucado and learn more about living out your faith in a practical way. There will be two class times offered for this 12-week study. Wednesday evening, class will began on September 18 at 7:00 p.m. Thursday afternoon, class is at 1:30 p.m.
