Book Study: Our study will focus on “The Christian Life: A Geography of God” by Michael Lindvall. As Lindvall describes it, “Those who would make spiritual journeys need spiritual maps. This little book is not an attempt to make another spiritual map. The map, if you will, has already been drawn. I would only point it out for the benefit of those who have found themselves restless for the journey. I will also offer thoughts about how to read this ancient map and hints about what you might experience as you travel. In the end, the most eloquent testimony to the Christian faith is the word of those who have taken the road before us and along the way found more than they first sought.” Rev. Shidemantle will lead this study. The books will be available on Sunday mornings beginning Feb. 15. The cost is $11. You can pick up a book and pay for it at our first session.
Intergenerational Music: Kids, teens, and adults join together around world music with drumming, chimes and handbells, anthems and more. Bette Kahler and Rebecca Chaffee will lead this group, and musicians of all ages are invited to participate.
What’s For Supper? Soup, Salad, kid-friendly option, and bread. See the weekly menu and sign-up sheets in the atrium.
