upcoming events

Blessing Bags. Children will meet in the SPY room to finish preparing Blessing Bags TODAY, during SPY from 9:15 to 10 a.m. Children will then bring Blessing Bags up to be blessed during the Iona Service.

A Spiritual and Personal Growth Discussion Group for Men. We will meet on Monday, November 12 from 7-8:30 p.m. in the Chapel of the church building, for honest and lively conversation about growth issues in our lives; we’ll continue to meet on the second and fourth Monday of each month. All men are welcome to join us for this time of enriching discussion of spiritual matters without judgment or criticism. We’ll consider ideas from “Lies We Believe About God,” a new book by Wm. Paul Young, author of “The Shack” – this time, the misconception (Chap. 26) that “God loves me for my potential” – although exploration could go anywhere from there. It’s not necessary to read the book beforehand, but the book’s Foreword can be previewed on Amazon, where it is available in both Kindle and paperback editions.
