New Bible Study on Acts

will begin on Thursday, Jan. 22 at Noon.  Please join us- bagged lunches are welcome!  For preparation, please read the first chapter and the introduction to Acts in a study Bible.

The Acts of the Apostles is an action-packed account of the early church.  As you read, watch for the work of the Holy Spirit- deeds of power, fiery preaching, generous giving, and amazing prison breaks.  And, don’t be surprised if you find the Holy Spirit at work in your own life!

14th Sunday after Pentecost: September 2, 2012

Readings for this week:

O God, Wisdom of the universe,
you bear the pain of your people.
Grant us the gift of wisdom,
that we may discern your way
and live justly and graciously
amid the struggles of this world. Amen.

10th Sunday after Pentecost- Aug 5, 2012

This Sunday we will hear “Do not work for the food that perishes, but the food that endures forever which the son of man will give to you.”  What is that enduring food?  Where are the signs in your life that God is already giving it to you?

Readings for Sunday:

The Plumbline of God’s Justice- Seventh Sunday after Pentecost

This Sunday, we hear how Amos sees God’s justice as a plumb line- something that stays straight even when everything around it is crooked.

What does God’s justice look like for us in the 21st century, dozens of generations removed from Amos?
