WEDNESDAY NIGHT CONNECTIONS
Is Off to an Incredible Start!

Sometimes you try something new in ministry without assurance that the plans you are making will be met with any measure of success. For the past 4 months, we have been working hard at providing a comprehensive, intergenerational, and growing experience wrapped around a meal provided by a professional chef. Seemed worth a try. But we were not sure if it would catch on. As we made our plans we figured a successful effort would feature a meal that would be enjoyed by as many as 60 or 70 members and friends.

Well, as you no doubt heard or have experienced, we were simply amazed (and a little overwhelmed) by the response! Thanks to Patty Lynn, our gifted chef, and the organizational efforts of our new member and supper coordinator, Julie Booth we have been providing amazing meals for an average of 140 people of all ages! Wow! What an incredible blessing!

Here is the schedule:

4:45 pm - 5:45 pm Yoga for All Ages and Abilities Come explore the Mind, Body, and Spirit connections
5:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Family Fun at Wednesday Connections Feb. 3

SACRED CONVERSATIONS:On Race Feb. 3

SACRED CONVERATIONS: Session II
February 10, 17 & 24

Our "SACRED CONVERSATIONS" continue with a look at how some of the teachings of our Christian faith can help us overcome the effects of racism that can distort the way we see and relate to people who are "different" from us, such as Muslims, political refugees, unregistered immigrants, etc. These conversations are open to all who wish to participate, with no prior registration necessary. Come and be part of this all-church conversation!
