February 25 - April 1
9:30am-11:00am - Room 214
During Lent we will be studying John Indermark's Way Words. This study is a series of scripturally-based readings to complement your Lenten journey. The Way is the most ancient naming of the Church in the Book of Acts and reminds all Christians we are a people on a journey of faith. But what signposts might guide us on this way? Way Words provides an itinerary of daily readings based on scripture for the journey we make during the season of Lent.
HALLELUJAH GIRLS on Saturday, February 21st from 9:30 - 11:00am
Hallelujah Girls will continue "considering the lilies of the field". We will welcome Kim McCormick, a beloved teacher in Wilmington, and a cancer survivor who has written several books about the healing journey. We will consider the healing plants of the Bible as we listen in to her powerful testimony. Y'alll come!
Saturdays, February 7th through March 14th
Join the Saturday Women’s Bible Study led by Sandy Veitch. We will study the book of Colossians. The emphasis will be the importance of Christ in the world, in the church, and in us. Come as often as you can and bring a friend from church or the community. Room 214, from 8:30am - 9:45am.
"For everything there is a season. And a time for every matter under heaven." - Ecclesiastes 3:1
NWPC Parents! You are invited during this upcoming Lenten season to join together, as a group of parents, to reflect on our gift of time. The theme of our five-week series is "It's Time to Stop, Pray, Work, Play, and Love," and it is significant that the first thing we have to do is STOP. Lent is an ideal time for taking on a practice of stopping, since it is a season when we traditionally engage in the practice of fasting and abstaining. We hope you will journey with us through these 6 weeks (Feb 15 - Mar 22), and share with us your own experience along the way.
Go to www.SSJE.org/time and subscribe with your email. You will receive an introductory email and the videos will be sent to you daily.
The Conversations Parent group will meet each Sunday during Lent at 9:15am. Please join us. I hope you will find the TIME.
Six-week Module Offerings 9:15am - 10:15am
Sunday School for all ages will begin the Lenten Module on February 15th with classes for preschool, elementary, JHYG, Confirmation, and adults. This is a six-week module through March 22nd.
The dates are set for June 8th - 13th! The planning is underway! Read the letter attached from Nicole and Nathan Hunter, leaders of the SHYG group.
Stay tuned for ways you can support this group. Prayers are appreciated as they plan, prepare and raise funds for this very important venture.
The SALT Class meets weekly in the corner of the Social Hall to discuss various topics and books. Currently, the study is based on the book Our Only World, Ten Essays by Wendell Berry – a farmer, poet, and essayist - who for over 50 years has been America’s “eloquent advocate for the planet, for our families, and for the future of our children and ourselves.” Written over the course of the last 5 years, these essays confront “head-on the necessity of clear thinking and direct action” in the face of “the planet’s environmental problems.” All are welcome to join the conversation in the southeast corner of the social hall.
All are welcome to join in this discussion group. The Sunday class begins at 9:10am.
Sunday Morning Module - three Sundays in January from 9:15am - 10:15am
Join us beginning January 11th for an Intergenerational ONE module in the Social Hall. We will hear eye-witness reports about our partnership with the Sabaneta IED Church in the Dominican Republic. Look for an appearance of a “cousin of Carlos!” And explore with us some of the delightful aspects of the Dominican culture. As our team again prepares to make the trip this spring, let’s consider how we can strengthen our bonds with our brothers and sisters in Christ!
