Our Sermon Series ...

Beginning January 5th, our new sermon series will focus on "The Sermon on the Mount" - Learning and living the core teachings of Jesus.

Senior Lunch Bunch - January 7th

Our  next Senior Lunch Bunch get-together will be on Tuesday, January 7, at  noon. We are going to have Linda McCallister as our guest. Linda has put  a notebook together that we lovingly call her "dead book". This sounds a  little grim but I encourage all who are interested to come as we  continue our discussion about end-of-life medical decisions.
  
Linda  put this notebook together a long time ago and she updates it every  year.   This contains all the information her children will need to  carry out Linda's final wishes. This includes all financial information,  wishes for her memorial service, and much much more. Linda presented  her notebook to us a few years ago during second hour and it was well  received. So, by popular demand, we are bringing her back.
 
All are welcome to attend, just bring a sack lunch and any questions you have about end-of-life decisions.

Seccond Hour Classes - Discussion Group in the Fireside Room beginning January 5th

Come join the discussion about what it means to become a "Healthy Christian".  Or, at least, health-ier!  

The  adult second hour class, starting January 5, will take on this topic  that affects all of us.  FOOD for the body, and for the mind, and for  the spirit.  How do we fit fitness into our fitful daily lives?  What  burdens and toxins do we needlessly bear?  What nurtures your spirit and  body and lightens your load?  Does the Bible give us any help or  guidance in all this?  And what are other good sources of wisdom and  help?

Women's Discussion Group - January 9th, 9:30 a.m.

Exciting  news ... the Women's Discussion Group will be meeting on January 9th at  9:30 a.m. in the Fireside Room. We will be reviewing "That The World May Know" video  series by Ray Vander Laan. These lessons of faith are filled with  amazing insights into the Bible, history of the Holy Land, and give us  an inspirational nudge to grow in spirit and faith. If you are planning  on making the upcoming Holy Land tour this study is for you.
 
If you have questions, please call Judy Kassell @ 503-873-5140. We look forward to our time together. Please join us.

 

Grief Support Group - 3rd Thursday (January 16th)

All are welcome to join the Grief  Support Group, led by Danika (Beard) Turney, in the Fireside Room every  third Thursday of the month at 6:00 p.m. Participants experience the  support and caring of other grieving persons, as well as receive helpful  information about grieving and the grief process.  


This time of the year can be even more of a challenge for those working through their journey.  Check in with folks and share some love and time.

Holy Land Trip Meeting - January 19th

 All  those signed up for the Holy Land & Passion Play - and anyone  interested in possibly going - are invited to an informational meeting  on Sunday, January 19, at 3:00 pm at  our church.  It will be a great opportunity to get acquainted with each  other and discuss what to expect, how to prepare, ideas and travel  tips.  Let's get excited
