Wednesday morning at 10:00 am in Fellowship hall. The new 8 week study, Invitation to the Old Testament.
This eight week study approaches the study of Hebrew Scriptures by inviting participants to hear the story of God and God's calling of the people of Israel through the many "voices" of the biblical text. Narrative, poem, history, and prophetic utterance all have their own distinctive characteristics and purpose, arising out of a particular historical, social, and cultural setting. To understand fully the story of God's covenantal relationship with Israel calls for listening to these various ways the story is told throughout the Old Testament. What does it mean to be God's chosen people? And how does the story of Israel's covenant with God inform our own identity as heirs of that covenant? Through this study, participants will be invited to listen afresh to the witness of the Old Testament to hear God's call and purpose for their own lives and respond to that call.

We are practicing a combination of new and old songs. We will soon be working on a cantata for Christmas,
which we will perform during church on December 22nd. We would love for anyone who wants to be part of a special presentation to come join us. We will have choir practice Thursday evening at 5:00 PM, and Cantata
practice at 5:30. Come worship the Lord in song and praise.
Walk to Emmaus
On your Walk to Emmaus, you will experience the overwhelming feeling of being loved. Love makes the Walk to Emmaus and any ministry of the church a powerful experience of salvation and redemption. When the church lives in the spirit of agape, the risen Christ is present and the gospel is proclaimed and experienced. The goal of the Walk to Emmaus is to show God's love to everyone involved. Every action and event in the seventy-two hours is designed to express the truth that we are loved. Emmaus is not perfect; but by intention and design, it is an expression of God's love.
Walk Date Where
Men's Walk #90 10/03 - 10/06 Gilmer
Women's Walk #91 10/10 - 10/13 Gilmer ( 2 women or going so far)
