Women's Study Group Grace Not Perfection Have you longed for a simpler, less hectic life? Perhaps a life that doesn't demand perfection at every turn? Author Emily Ley has designed a four-week study that helps us recognize that God's gift of grace outweighs our meager designs for an impossibly perfect life. The Wednesday Morning Women's Study Group will be covering this topic beginning on October 31st. Please join us in the Parlor, at 9:30 a.m. 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. Starting September 11 Tuesdays, 1:30 - 2:00 In the Church Chapel "Be joyful always; pray continually." -1 Thessalonians 16-17
Mystery Book Club High Kicks, Hot Chocolate and Homicides The Mystery Book Club's selection for November is High Kicks, Hot Chocolate and Homicides by Mary McHugh. The Happy Hoofers' are a dance troop made up of five friends. Though they have appeared in Europe and South America, accepting an invitation to appear with the Radio City Music Hall Rockettes in a Christmas program would be like icing on the cake of their careers. Rehearsals are halted when the Rockettes dance captain is killed while inspecting the hydraulics that raise and lower the hall's stage. Part-time dancers, full-time moms and business women, these gals can always find time to play detective when a mystery occurs. Please join us on November 19th at 7 p.m. in the parlor as we follow the clues in this thriller. If you have any questions please contact Sue VanKampen.

Joining one of the music groups is a wonderful way to utilize your spiritual gifts and participate in worship in addition to having another avenue of fellowship at the church.
