Adult Bible Study – Psalms: Prayers of the Heart
Oct 14 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

We often want to read the Bible, but don’t know where to start. Informal studies with friends help us become acquainted with the Bible in a relaxed and interesting way. Psalms shows us how to relate to God as we pray our doubts, our fear, and our anger. Psalms also shows us how we can respond to God. In Psalms, we find a good place to explore who we are and what God means to us.

This study is open to all adults, and will be held on Monday nights from 7:00 – 8:30 PM beginning September 16. Led by Kathi Dustin, Jim Howard, and Kristin Desmarais, we will study two psalms each week for 6 weeks. You can check out the book and talk with the leaders at Rally Sunday or on Sunday, Sept. 15. The book costs $7.00.

Thursday Morning Book Group “Holy Envy: Finding God in the Faith of Others”
Oct 17 @ 9:30 am – 11:00 am

The Thursday Morning Book Group, led by Rev. Crouch, meets every Thursday from 9:30-11:00 am in the Great Hall. Our first meeting will be September 12, and our first book will be Holy Envy: Finding God in the Faith of Others by Barbara Brown Taylor. In this book, Taylor “contemplates the myriad ways other people and traditions encounter the Transcendent, both by digging deeper into those traditions herself and by seeing them through her students’ eyes as she sets off with them on field trips to monasteries, temples, and mosques.”

Books will be available in the church office. Cost is $15. Please read the Introduction and Chapter 1 for our first meeting. All are welcome!

Girls’ Night Out
Oct 17 @ 5:00 pm

The Girls’ Night Out – the monthly gathering of women of all ages from First Church – will feature our first gathering of the fall at Lisa and Barbara Beelle’s home. This is a wonderful chance to catch up with old friends, to be able to follow up on all those conversations you start at the fellowship hour after church but don’t get to finish, or to touch base with some women you haven’t had a chance to chat with before. October is a great time to join in if you haven’t attended before. The setting is informal, the mood is light, the agenda is non-existent. The point is just to gather and share some stories and maybe a few laughs.

All are welcome, and there is a ramp for those with mobility issues. Bring an appetizer or something to drink or just yourself. Call Judy Dibble if you need a ride (520-4844) or if you need directions call Lisa (219-3842) or Barbara (998-1002).
