BIBLE STUDIES:

Thursday Community Bible Study begins Sept. 8, 9:30-11:30 in the Youth Room. The group will be using the book/video series “Jesus and Women-The First Century and Now” by biblical culturalist Kristi McLelland. You will examine the historical and cultural climate of first-century Middle Eastern society to not only understand Jesus more deeply but to fuel your worship of Him today. This 14-week study, that will alternate video viewing and discussion, will be led by Valerie Stein. Please order your book prior to the first meeting. Here is a link to order it on Amazon: Jesus and Women

Evening Zoom Study, is moving to Wednesday nights and will begin at 7p.m. on Sept. 14, continuing on alternating Wednesdays through January. This is a great option for those who live a distance from the church or don’t like to drive at night! The book for reading and discussion will be “Hearing God: Developing a Conversational Relationship with God” by Dallas Willard.  In this beloved classic, you’ll gain rich spiritual insight into how we can hear God’s voice clearly and develop an intimate partnership with him in the work of his kingdom. Contact leader Patty Howland for more info and to obtain the Zoom link for the group. Please order your book prior to the first meeting. Here is a link to order it on Amazon: Hearing God

Tuesday Sisters will meet at the home of Cec Conner beginning Sept. 20 at 1pm. They will be using the “Lectio Divina” Bible study method on the book of Matthew.

FELLOWSHIP GROUPS:

Women Together (Ladies Night Out) These are quarterly fellowship events for ALL WOMEN! We are planning to meet on Friday, September 16, from 6-9pm for a “A Night in Tuscany”! This event was planned for the week in 2020 when we had to shut down due to COVID so it never happened. We are looking forward to finally being able to move ahead with it. There will be an Italian-style potluck. Click here to  indicate what salad, main dish or dessert you will bring: Potluck Sign Up We will be in the Youth Room (think couches and big screens!) to eat dinner, and watch the movie “Under the Tuscan Sun”, taking an intermission for  dessert. This is great opportunity to get to know other women and also to invite a friend to a fun, non-threatening event!
