Advent Bible Study
Join us each Sunday of Advent from 11:30am-1pm in the church lounge, a light lunch will be provided.
Elder Dan Graves will lead us in a small group viewing of a DVD, The Journey: Walking the Road to Bethlehem. There are a few books available for reviewing and they are available at Amazon and ChristianBooks.com for about $9-$12. It would be helpful for the discussion if you could read the weeks thoughts ahead of time, however if not, the DVD will serve as background for the discussion. Classes will be between 45-60 minutes. You should be out in time for lunch with a new appreciation for the stories we all know.
The Annual Christmas Pageant will take place on Sunday, December 17, 2017 during service. The Annual Christmas Luncheon to follow.
We have new Children’s Bulletins. They are available in the Narthex next to the regular bulletins.
It all begins with Baptism. Here is one of our newest members of the Family of God. Aaron’s journey will continue in nursery care in our beautiful and spacious nursery. He will then move to our toddler class. Following the children’s sermon children ages 4-11 go to experience the Bible through story, song, and art. The children leave service and proceed to Calvin Hall where they are told a Bible story using various techniques. Our Current Curriculum is called Shine which integrates the story with, a song, and activities that all tie in to the overall bible verse/ theme. The children then continue to explore the message learned in the Bible story through activities and crafts. If you have any questions about these or other programs, please contact Karen Schuehler, chair person of the Christian Education committee or Gretchen Kolecki our Director of Christian Education at firstname.lastname@example.org. Sunday School starts after the children’s sermon during service which starts at 10:30am.
We begin with the beginning (Genesis) and learn about the Old Testament, the New Testament and most importantly who Jesus is through different media and experiences. Classes usually are twice a month and each 8th grader (or older) in the class is expected to do two service projects, attend worship on Sunday, take 10 pictures of “Where I see God” and compose a Faith Statement in order to join the church in May.
We make casseroles for the homeless, walk in the CROP hunger walk, laugh a lot, talk about movies,music, and our lives. In the spring we travel to NYC to look at churches (and hang in Times Square!) All leads to YOU thinking about who God is to YOU and where you see yourself connecting to the church as you grow up.
