RALLY DAY is Sunday, September 8, 2019!
In our commitment to provide ongoing nurturing for the whole family throughout the year, we have scheduled a professional puppeteer for Rally Day on Sunday, September 8 at 9:30 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall. It will be a time of fun for the whole family! Music and puppets! This is just for the kids, right? Not exactly!
John and Diane's unique program offers enjoyment for every member of the family. They combine music, comedy, and teaching that together drive home the truths of scripture. These musicians have a heart for family ministry. Their ten recordings include worship choruses, scripture songs, and four musicals especially for children. They also have two puppet videos "Hairy and Company-Backstage" and "Movin' On Down".
John and Diane have served on staff with Forest Springs for over 30 years. They spend the summer at the camp, ministering to young and old alike. During the rest of the year, they travel as an outreach team throughout the United States and also abroad. For more information see their website at www.hairyandcompany.com.
Sunday, September 15: A Look Ahead
at Adult Education
Jill Hindrichs and Vicki Greene will
lead this class in Room 109. We will discuss our need to further our growth in
our spiritual life and how we can apply it to day-to-day situations. After a brief reflective experience, we will
look at a balance of Bible Study, social/political issues, and life
application. Please come with some thoughts of what specific topics you would
like to discuss in the coming year under those three categories. Also, consider
a need to meet at an additional time beside the 9:30 a.m. hour.
Sunday, September 22 to Sunday, October
27: “Stories Jesus Told: How to Read a Parable” by Greg Carey
Harry Sharp will lead a class on the
stories Jesus told, using the book by the same title. Jesus used stories or
parables to help us understand how God wants us to live our lives. These stories can be interpreted in more than
one way depending on (as Wesley would put it) our reason, experience, and
traditions. Join Harry as he explores each week a different story so that we
can learn how to read, interpret, and live that story in our daily life. The
class will meet at 9:30 a.m. in Room 109. Books will be available in the church
office for $12.
