What Christians Believe and Why is a DVD-based study about The Apostle’s Creed and basic beliefs about God, Jesus Christ, The Holy Spirit, Forgiveness of Sins and other subjects.  This class begins at 9:30 today in the East Library Wing.  You may join us for part two and beyond.

What a great idea! A bible-study class will meet at 9:30 on Sunday’s in the south basement classroom that uses the same scripture verses that children are using in The Faith Weaver curriculum.  Then, parents and grandparents are able to visit with little ones and extend Sunday class throughout the week. Amy Wuthrich leads this study and you may join at any time.

A Mennonite Disaster Service Response to Harvey, Houston Mennonites in the Path of Tropical Storm Harvey, Taylor Swift Breaks the Silence, Did a Solar Eclipse Darken the Skies During Jesus Crucifixion and Milkweed Monarchs and Models are featured  on The Pastor’s Plank of the Church Bulletin Board today.
