WEDNESDAY NIGHT ALIVE – Begins on Wednesday, September 11, at 6:00pm. This fall we will be offering a Progressive Bible Study “The Most Dangerous Book in the World”, on Wednesdays from 6:00-7:00. It will be held from September 11-October 30, in fellowship hall.

Did you ever wonder how the Bible came to be? Who decided what books would be in it? Who even wrote all those books? And why is it so dangerous? If these questions spark your curiosity then you should join us for this fall’s Wednesday Night Alive as we embark on a Progressive Bible Study. The class will meet on Wednesday nights from 6-7 PM starting on September 11 and ending on October 30. There is no book for this class (other than a Bible-New Revised Standard Version, please) as handouts and supplemental materials will be provided at each session. Join us to learn more about the most dangerous book in the world—The Bible.

FELLOWSHIP DINNERS – It is time to sign up for our Fellowship dinners which will be held in October & November.  This is a wonderful time to connect with old and new members by enjoying dinner at a member’s home.  Usually there are 6 to 10 in attendance at these dinners.  Sign-up starts Sunday, August 11th, and will continue until the middle of September.  Hosts and hostesses are always needed, so please indicate on the sheet if you can host.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED  to clean a Habitat for Humanity house on Friday, September 6, from 9:30 to 11:30! The house is located at 1307 N.
