“Welcoming the Stranger: Discovering and Living God’s Heart for Immigrants”

Wednesday Evenings, February 17-March 16 7-8:30 pm in the Westcott Room Immigration is one of the most complicated issues of our time. Voices on all sides argue strongly for action and change. Christians find themselves torn between the desire to uphold laws and the call to minister to the vulnerable. In this book study, we will read, discuss, and pray in order to move beyond the rhetoric and offer a Christian response.

Compline Worship Service

 The word compline refers to the final church service of the day in the historical Christian tradition of canonical hours. It is a service of contemplation and reflection. “From dust we shall come… and to dust we shall return” Genesis 3:19 These bodies of ours are finite.

Tapas, Talk & Theology

The Tapas, Talk and Theology Bible Study is currently engaged in a 12-lesson series based on the book Augustine:  Philosopher and Saint. Long before Augustine was declared a saint by the Church, he gained profound influence as both a Church Father and a Christian Platonist philosopher.  We meet every other Friday evening at 7:00 pm with a light supper in a participant’s home followed by discussion.  For meeting location and other information, please contact Becky Ferrell at rrussferr@verizon.net.
