Half Truths Small Group Study – starts Nov. 13
We’ll explore some simple phrases that sound Christian – like something you might find in the Bible. They capture some element of truth yet they miss the point in important ways. We’ll meet on the following Tuesdays at noon in the upstairs Conference Room: Nov. 13, Nov. 20, Nov. 27, Dec. 4 and Dec. 11. No preparation necessary. Video followed by discussion. Bring a sack lunch if you wish. Questions? Please speak to Pastor Marianne. All are welcome.
Prayer Shawl Ministry – Nov. 18 We will be starting a new small group at our church, beginning Nov. 18th. Members will be knitting or crocheting prayer shawls for people who need comfort and prayers. We gather as a group to work on our shawls, then continue or work at home, praying for the recipient of the shawl as we work on it. If you don’t know how to knit or crochet, and would like to learn, you are also welcome. We will teach you! Our leader will be Carol Quinn, recently retired UM pastor who served the North Freedom and Denzer churches most recently. Carol has been attending our church and is passionate about knitting and prayer shawls! Our first meeting will be on Nov. 18th at noon, following the worship service. This will be an introductory meeting, introducing us to one another and to the ministry of prayer shawls. Come prepared to begin knitting or crocheting, patterns will be provided. If you are a beginner, extra yarn and crochet or knitting needles will be available for you to start. We will meet two more times in December, the 2nd and 16th, either after church or later in the day on Sunday. The time will be determined by the preference of the group. Those interested can sign up at church, or email Carol at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fall Card Buffet There will be a Fall card buffet for up to 6-7 people on November 13 at 6:30pm in the work room. You can make as many cards as you want in 2 hours at $3 per card. Please sign up with Barbara Kell by November 9. (There will also be a Christmas card buffet in December. If you are interested share the dates you can come with Barb. This will be 3 hours to allow for people to make more cards. These will also be $3 per card.)
