Thursday Community Book Study
Weekly at 10:00 am
We will be discussing a current bestseller, Caste by Isabella Wilkerson, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author.  Through vivid stories and careful research, she tells the painful story of America’s unspoken caste system which has stained our country from the beginning.  Finally she shows ways we can move beyond this destructive separation along racial lines, towards hope in our common humanity and compassion towards the stigmatized victims.  Her powerful story-telling leads us into the painful reality of Blacks living in America.  Join us by zoom on Thursdays at 10 am.  Hosted by Tom Dunlap and others.

This work will reduce annual operating costs as well as support our worship life and mission activities for years to come.  Trustees will provide information on the scope of work and timeline, with particular attention on the financial benefits to completing this work now while the building is empty.  We look forward to your participation and to answering any questions that you might have!

Virtual Advent Retreat
Dec. 5, 10:00 am -12:00 pm
A Journey of Hope: In this challenging time of pandemic protocol with masks and distancing and post-election time of mending relationships, it is time to find a peaceful space in your home away from others and activities to give yourself two hours of quiet to reflect on the meaning of hope in this season of waiting and anticipation. Give yourself time to be refreshed in your relationship with God. Led by Rev. Beth Braxton and Elders Tom Dunlap and Miriam Dewhurst.

Discipleship in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John
Dec. 5 & Dec. 12, 4:00 pm
As disciples of Jesus, we are called to follow him. But exactly what does “follow” mean? Each of the Gospel writers came to somewhat different answers to that question. This Bible study will delve into passages in each Gospel that encapsulate a different perspective on “discipleship.”  Paul Dornan will lead this discussion.
