PASTOR’S EVENING BIBLE STUDY

This fall, Pastor’s Evening Bible study meets from 6:30 – 8:00 pm on Thursdays. The study is from the books of 1 & 2 Corinthians, Galatians and Ephesians. Paul’s writings are some of the earliest surviving Christian documents. They provide an insight into the beliefs and controversies of early Christianity and as part of the canon of the New Testament they are foundational texts for both Christian theology and ethics.  Bible study books are available in the church office. Questions can be directed to Paul Anderson at 282-7213 or barbpaul@charter.net.

LITTLE LAMBS  – Parents & Pre-Sunday School Children

Every Sunday during the school year, parents of children under 3 are welcome to meet in the nursery from 9:15 – 10:15 am. The large space provides a welcoming atmosphere for families to meet and share fellowship and parenting support with each other while the older children are in Sunday school. The children have time to play and interact with each other in a relaxed and open setting. Parents can share their joys and struggles and even lift each other up in prayer when they’re going through difficult times. Over the years, strong bonds are built between the parents and with Hosanna.
