Our Bible Study this fall is a program based on the Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations, by Bishop Robert Schnase. We are strongly urging everyone, especially all members of the Church Council, to make every effort to attend these sessions, as they will be a valuable aid to us as we chart our future course together. During November, our focus will be on Intentional Faith Development. We are meeting on Thursday evenings at 7:30 PM, partly to accommodate Pastor Drake's treatment schedule. Please plan to attend as many of these sessions as you possibly can. We may take the month of December off, then resume in January with a focus on Risk-Taking Mission and Service. We will have more details on this later.
