Mini-retreat for Advent

Advent Space, Holy Waiting
Join us on Saturday, December 14, from 9 to noon to spend a morning with the expectant waiters of the first Christmas:  Elizabeth and Zechariah; and Joseph and Mary. What were their hopes and dreams, challenges and concerns? How can their experiences speak to us 2000 years later as we wait for Christ this Advent? We will meet in the Parish Hall but also spend time in the sanctuary. The morning will include scripture and silence, reflection and prayer. If you can’t stay for the whole morning, come for whatever portion works for you. Bring a journal if that would be helpful. All are welcome. 

During the Week

Finding God in the Most Unexpected Places
Daryl Knudeson will be presenting “Finding God in the Most Unexpected Places” on five Thursday evenings (October 3, November 7, December 12, January 9, and February 6) at Indulge Bakery & Bistro on Warwick Boulevard from 7:00 to 8:15 PM.  A social time begins at 6:30 PM. There is no cost for the program. These five sessions will be based on her book, Sacred Story: Finding God in the Ordinary. Click here for more information about this series.

Centering Prayer Class
David Lilley is leading a Centering Prayer class at 5:15 p.m. every Wednesday beginning September 4. It will be held in the parish library. 

Centering Prayer
Centering Prayer is offered at 7:30 a.m. on Thursdays in the Parish Library. Led by David Lilley.

Thursday Morning Bible Study
10 to 11:15 a.m., Parish Library
Bible Study will begin on Thursday, September 12 at 10:00 in the parish library. All are invited to participate. We will be studying the book of Isaiah.

Women of the Word Bible Study
6:30 p.m. Wednesdays
Women of the Word, our evening ladies Bible study, will begin a new study of the Book of James at 6:30 PM on September 25 in the Parish Library.  This ten-week interactive study entitled James: A Study of Faith in Action was written by and will be led by Daryl Knudeson.  The study takes an in-depth look at our inner life, and how life’s struggles and disappointments are tools through which God prepares and strengthens his people to live out their faith before others.  This fast-paced and sometimes hard-hitting letter written by our Lord’s brother James is sure to encourage and challenge you. If you are interested in joining the class or have questions concerning it, contact Peggy Woodall (880-8908 or pwoodall1@verizon.net), Daryl Knudeson (318-210-7610), or Gloria Brooks (641-7871).
