Thursday Morning Women’s Bible Study begins 9:30-11:15 a.m. Thursday, September 14 and ends with a Christmas brunch on December 14. Topic of study is the book, Nehemiah : Rebuilt and Rebuilding, by Kathleen Nielson. This is a 10-week study, set in the time of the return from exile. “Nehemiah is not only an example of great leadership; his story shows us in living color God’s sovereign plan to work through his people for his redemptive purposes in Jesus Christ.” The areas of focus this year are depth in scripture study and small groups. Let’s have fun, too! Childcare is provided, birth through age 5. Cost is $20/semester, collected on the first day.

Summer Story Stations

This summer, every one of us, young and old alike, has an opportunity to imagine the parables and miracles of Jesus. We will eat foods particular to the story, make art, read books, and experience the story through all five senses. The Story Stations are for everyone. Grab someone young or old, with or without children, or whose children are grown, and ask them to experience them with you! You won’t want to miss this chance to walk through scripture together.

Station Schedule:

June 4 & 11: The Miracle at the Wedding at Cana/ The Parables of the Great Banquet & 2 Sons in the Vineyard
June 18, 25 & July 2: Jesus Calms the Storm/Parable of the Good Shepherd
July 9 & 16: Jesus Heals the Paralytic/ Parable of the Good Samaritan
July 23 & 30: Jesus Feeds 5,000/ Parables of the Sower & Mustard Seed
