New Adult Education Starting

Martin Luther: 500 Years after Wittenberg
Sundays, October 1–29
9 a.m. in the Chapel

2017 marks the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s publication of his 95 Theses criticizing the Church’s sale of indulgences, the symbolic beginning of the Protestant Reformation which reshaped Europe and the world. Throughout October, leading up to Reformation Sunday, we will learn about Luther through video and primary sources. What drove him to challenge the most powerful institutions of his day? How did this obscure, brusque monk manage to be heard when others had failed? Does his message and method still matter and speak to and for us today? Class is led by John Sitler.

 

Harvest Potluck

Join us Sunday, October 15 following worship for an all church potluck. We moved this date earlier so that we could take this opportunity to welcome our new Interim Pastor, Brian Merritt. Bring your dish and the pleasure of your company to Fellowship Hall following worship. All are welcome. Contact Selma if you have any questions.

Parents Night Out & Kids Movie Night

Parents Night Out & Kids Movie Night will be Friday, October 6 from 6-9 pm for children over the age of 5. We will be showing Captain Underpants.
