“Do not be Afraid” is a common one-liner in the Bible, yet we continue to struggle with fear. Fear can be protector, but often it is a deterrent to love, openness, and getting on with living. We fear things we can’t control or understand. Diane Russell will facilitate two meetings focusing on our fears. In May we will look at the psychological basis of fear and at what scripture says to us. Please join us in the Owen Library on Sat., May 23. 9:30 a.m. - coffee and snacks, 10:00 a.m. meditation and meeting. We will end by 11:30 a.m. Questions?

Education for Ministry is a four year program that on the surface is a study and discussion of the Old and New Testaments, Church History, and Theology - but under that is a loving, caring group that learns together, grows together and finds their ministry together. The Theological reflection is mainstay of EFM, and teaches us all to think theologically about our lives. Our group begins the first Wednesday in September (6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.) and meets weekly until the last week of May, 2016. Tables will be set up outside of the church, between the services, the 1st and 2nd weekend of June. Stop by and meet Steve and Pam Van Allen, you can see the books used, ask questions and enroll.

The flowers are to the glory of God and in loving memory of

Steve, Mike and Kathy Fulton
