School's Back

   The kids in your life may groan about a return to the classroom, but you'll hear a big hurrah from the Bible Study group when our sessions resume on Wednesday, Sept. 12, 9:30 am in the Ross Lounge.  By request, the Wednesday morning group will begin with a three week study on the book of Jonah.  You may remember the musical production, Jonah Man Jazz  presented by the choirs a few years ago.  While that interpretation was fun, the Bible Study will take us beyond the story of a man swallowed by a whale and into the deeper lesson of the scripture.
    This would be a great study for someone wanting to test the waters but not sure they want to take on a longer project.  The coffee is ready when we gather at 9:30 am.  The room is generally buzzing with chat, there are Bibles available as well as large print handouts of the study scripture.  Usually there are goodies.  No pre-registration required and you don't need a back-pack.  Just pull up a chair and join in.

     The Wednesday evening study begins in October and will by trying something different this term,  a video study on Ray Vander Laan's "Faith Lessons Series."  The videos take the viewer on an archaeological exploration of the Holy Land and the lectures discuss the significance of these places to modern day Christianity.  More details available in a few weeks.

       Another program that gets underway this month is the Christmas musical, City Lights, written by your blog mistress.  Rehearsals begin on Sept. 16, 11:30 in the Sanctuary.  Can you sing? dance? act? paint scenery? operate a spotlight? sew? . . . many skills are needed to present this annual treat for the congregation.  Contact the church office for details if you're interested in being involved.
