Women's Bible Study: Second Monday of the month @ 4pm. (only Sept-April)(not in December) The study will be “In All Things”, a study of Philippians. The Study is a devotional Bible Study on UNSHAKEABLE JOY. Jesus never intended for us to have just a little bit of happiness in our lives. HE wants us to have fullness of joy-no matter our circumstances. The book of Philippians is an invitation to joy, written by an imprisoned apostle Paul to believers in the early church. His refrain throughout the letter was “Rejoice!” His joy was unshakeable. His peace was secure. His hope was abounding. But how did he find profound contentment in the midst of such difficult circumstances? Discover a joy that will carry you through all the ups and downs of life in the nine-week study of Philippians.”

Adult Forum: The Adult Forum meets on the first, third, and fifth Sundays of the month from 10:30 am to 11:00 am to encounter how our faith helps us understand the world around us. We welcome lively discussion to seek understanding on topics that interest the class. (1st and 3rd Sunday of the month @ 10:30am) Assisting Minister Workshop: Martin Luther said, among other things, that we are a “priesthood of all believers.” Before, it was only the priest and the deacons who were allowed to approach the altar. Luther saw this as one more way the Church hierarchy tried to separate the people from God. Anyone, he asserted, can approach the altar, just as anyone can approach God. Many churches have responded to this by having a congregation member serve as an assisting minister, helping to lead the service with the pastor. The presence of an assisting minister is a reminder that we are all welcome to come to God, and that we don’t have to be an ordained minister to lead in worship. I will be living out that assertion of Luther’s this fall, and I invite you to participate in the position of Assisting Minister. If you aren’t sure what that is or what that entails, there will be several information meetings (each stands on its own; it’s not a series) where I will lead a discussion on what the duties and expectations of an Assisting Minister are. If the Spirit moves you, please let me know if you feel it’s something you can do in our service together. The next Meeting is unknown at this time.
