This fall find relationships that transform. Our wonderful ministry fair offers many ways for you can get connected with new friends, and to find your place to serve and grow. September 8 also marks the return to fall worship schedule: 9:00 Traditional, 9:00 Contemporary and 10:30 Classic.
The Wellness Team is excited to introduce a new ministry that focuses on equipping the congregation with practical life tools and applications.
This Fall, Financial Peace University is a nine-week class that teaches you how to manage money the right way! In these nine lessons, Dave Ramsey and our team of financial experts will walk you through all of the practical information you should have learned in high school, but never did—it's based on God's and Grandma's ways of handling money, and it looks suspiciously like common sense!
As you learn about saving, budgeting, paying off debt, investing, giving, and so much more, this class will guide you through each step you need to learn and do, so you can finally start making your money work for you! There is a fee of $109 per family which covers the class, videos and take home materials and CDs.
Looking for a supportive group of friends? Want to apply scripture to our lives today? Women's Circle provides a place where women of all ages and stages can share and learn from each other’s experience. This is a great chance to go deeper in our faith. Child care is available on Thursdays (please request 1 week beforehand). This fall Rev. Jessica Vaughan Lower will lead a discussion of "Brene Brown and the Bible!"
In her book, “Holy Envy, Finding God in the Faith of Others”, New York Times bestselling author Barbara Brown Taylor tackles the questions, worries, and concerns that arise when we encounter “difference” and “others.” This is not a primer on religions; instead, she explores what is opened and what is revealed when we accept the invitation to investigate all the wonder before us. Here we learn not only that God’s preferred language is driven by curiosity and specializes in questions, but we also discover the spiritual riches God can teach us from the faith of others. Purchase your Brown’s book on-line or support your local book store.

Sept. 17 - Oct. 8: Jonah A Prophet for the Abrahamic Faiths
Jonah is a highly regarded figure in Jewish, Christian, and Islamic traditions. We will study how the message of Jonah is portrayed and interpreted among the three Abrahamic faiths, and enrich our reading of the Old Testament book.
Oct. 29 – Nov. 19: Wealth and Poverty in the Bible
Dr. Lee will look at the economic life of ancient Israel and the context from which the prophetic and wisdom teachings on wealth and poverty arise. Ancient and modern economic models and practices are compared to draw relevant principles needed for more just and faithful Christian living.
