TUESDAY BIBLE STUDY
The Tuesday Bible study will begin a new study on March 26, we will study the book of Hebrews. Hebrews is an incredible book written to the Jews who were evaluating Jesus and struggling with this new faith. It talks about how the old Judiasm and the new Christianity are both religions reveled by, God but Christianity surpasses Judiasm. It encourages us to follow Christ, to hold on to our faith and to look forward to Christ’s return.
 

On Tuesday April 16, we will break from Hebrews to view the DVD “The True Easter Story-The Promise Kept”. The DVD discusses the true depth of the Easter story as it begins 2000 years earlier with a promise between Abraham and Almighty God. On April 23 we will continue our discussion of Hebrews. This Bible Study is open to all who are interested in better understanding Scripture.  Tuesdays/ 9:15 am Westview Acres, Fireside Room – OR – 7:00 pm Faith Lutheran, Fireside Room

Summer 2019 Pastor’s Book Study
Anne Lamott’s Stitches: A Handbook on Meaning, Hope and Repair.
Wednesday’s July 10-July 31, 10-11am or 6-7pm, Fireside Room
 
Summer is a great time to ask, “What do we do when life lurches out of balance? How can we reconnect to one other and to what’s sustaining, when evil and catastrophe seem inescapable?” Please join Pastor Dale and Pastor Katie as we dig in to Anne Lamott’s Stitches: A Handbook on Meaning, Hope and Repair.
July 10th–31st, 10-11am OR 6-7pm Wednesdays, Fireside Room
 
In this book Lamott explores how we find meaning and peace in these loud and frantic times; where we start again after personal and public devastation; how we recapture wholeness after loss; and how we locate our true identities in this frazzled age. We begin, Lamott says, by collecting the ripped shreds of our emotional and spiritual fabric and sewing them back together, one stitch at a time. It’s in these stitches that the quilt of life begins, and embedded in them are strength, warmth, humor, and humanity.
