Starting Jan. 6, our Children’s Church will return once more to our “Godly Play” Bible storytelling series, with lessons about the meaning of some of our special celebrations (like the visit of the Magi and the baptism of Jesus), as well as story versions of Jesus’ parables. This class for children in Grades K-5 begins after the Message for the Whole Family of God is shared in the sanctuary at our 10:15am worship service. 6th graders and up may participate in Confirmation; infants through PreK are welcome in the nursery at the beginning of the service, or after the Family Message (whichever parents prefer).
Our 9:00am Bible Study will also resume on Jan. 6. For the season of Epiphany, the topic will be an introduction to the Gospel of Luke, our Gospel for our current lectionary year. In Lent (beginning February 17), we’ll return once more to Handel’s Messiah with six more sessions on the music and Scriptures of this masterpiece, building up to our Easter Hallelujah! Meanwhile, the “Animate: Faith” class for adults will meet two more times in January (Mon. Jan. 14 & 28); and our next adult study offering will begin with our Lenten Wednesday program.
