Listen Up and Limber Up

After a year spent in the Old Testament, we turn this year to the New Testament starting with the Gospel of Mark. We use the Listen Up Bible Series from the United Church of Christ. God will always have something new to say to us even when the stories sound familiar and are often told. God's word may be heard through careful listening, honest sharing, and trust in the Holy Spirit. Leadership is shared with a different facilitator each week. Materials are provided. 

Tuesdays at noon - Jan. 10, 2017 we begin a 12 week unit on 1 Corithians

At 1:30 the spirit guides us to attention of the body. Chair Yoga with Marcie is a gentle class for all ages and designed to build and enhance strength and over-all well-being. Suggested donation for yoga is $5 which is donated to the church. The Bible study is free. Stay for both or attend what you can. Chair yoga is also held Fridays at 1:30 pm.
