Bible Study  Mondays, 2:30pm-4pm

CHILDREN


Godly Play  Sundays, 9am

The Bible study group continues to read We Make the Road by Walking by Brian D. McLaren. This study is providing tools and space to talk about life’s journey in terms of themes and teachings of the weekly lectionary readings. We enjoy this time together and welcome anyone who would like to visit and decide if this is something they would find exciting and refreshingly new.

In October we plan to spend time together looking at festivals to celebrate the lives of those whom we love and who have died. October is the month of Halloween, and we will discover how this Christian Festival of All Hallows' Eve in Europe has evolved in the US. We will also look at the Day of the Dead in Mexico and All Souls' and All Saints' Day in our Book of Common Prayer. Topics are as follows:

EDUCATION & FORMATION

We strive to know Christ more deeply and bring others to his redeeming grace.

This fall we continue with familiar Old Testament stories such as Creation and Noah’s Ark, but branch out further to tell of The Exile of God’s people and their

return to the promised land. Advent and Christmas will bring liturgical
stories of Being Ready and of Christ’s Birth. Parables will again appear during Epiphany, and stories of Jesus during Lent and Eastertide.
This method of letting the children hear and see the stories allows for the whole person to engage in a story, sight, sound, touch and critical thinking through a wondering session after each lesson.
