Tuesday Bible study: Jonah study beginning 30 September
Over the past couple of months, the Tuesday evening Bible study has been looking at texts from the past Sunday. We’ll continue with this schedule for one more week and then begin a new study on 30 September:
23 September: Lectionary texts
30 September – 21 October: Jonah
This fall, we’ll be reading Jonah and Ruth—two short Old Testament books with great stories, fascinating characters, and wonderful depictions of the mercy of God. We’ll start with four weeks on Jonah. Study guides are available for CHF 20 each—sign up today and spread the word!
New Sunday morning class: Practicing our Faith
Yes, the Christian faith is a way of believing, but it is every bit as much a way of life, marked by distinct and life-giving practices. On Sunday mornings this fall, a group will be gathering to look at central practices of the Christian faith, including discernment, Sabbath-keeping, singing, and forgiveness.
The class will begin on Sunday, 5 October and will last for 9 weeks. We’ll gather at the church from 9h45 until 10h45, prior to worship on Sundays. Books are available for CHF 20 each—though not required, they’ll be a helpful way to follow along. Sign up today or contact the church office.
Connections Class this October
Are you new to the congregation? Want to learn more about our mission and ministry together? This October 5, 12, and 19, there will be a three-part Connections Class offered on Sunday mornings. Whether you’re a new member or recent guest, this is a great opportunity to begin learning about the congregation and exploring ways to be involved. A sign-up form is available this morning, or you can contact the church office.
Coming soon: ELCG Harvest Festival
Every fall the congregation gathers for a festive afternoon party and auction. All proceeds go toward our sharing ministry—our support of relief and development projects throughout the world. Stay tuned for more information very soon, and begin thinking about what you could donate this year: a meal, a lesson, an item….
