We are reading the book “Jesus: A Pilgrimage” by
 James Martin, SJ.  Please read chapters Sixteen & Seventeen.

Children’s Sunday School will once again begin a new season of studying God’s Holy Word. We will meet in the children’s chapel/Library at 10:30, and join the Service during the Passing of the Peace. Perhaps God is calling you to faithfully pray for our Sunday school. Please let our young church visitors know they are welcome.
The Adult Ed Group meets Sunday’s  from 9:00-10:00 AM. All are welcome.
If you have not come before, please send me your email address so that I can put you on the Group’s mailing  list for Readings, Hymns, and other matters as they arise.
 Or, just show up! The Readings and Hymns are listed in the prior Sunday’s Bulletin as well as in the Newsletter. Read and ponder  the Lessons daily before Sunday so that the Group discussion will be more meaningful.
Hope to see you then.
God’s Peace,
Dan Riddick
