A Refugee’s Journey"
Sunday, April 2, 11:00 a.m
Halldorson Hall

Refugees are people who flee violence and persecution to seek a safer life—people who have no choice but to leave their homes, often with little or no notice, in order to escape torture or death at the hands of extremist groups or corrupt governments. An individual is 13 times more likely to gain admission to Harvard than to the U.S. as a refugee. Join us on Sunday, April 2, and learn about the long, arduous process a refugee must endure in order to find freedom in the United States. A volunteer from RAMP (Refugee Assistance Morris Partners) will share examples of the real-life experience and enlighten us to the assistance and support services they provide in cooperation with Church World Service (CWS). See page 16 for a local RAMP update.

"A way of life abundant: this is God’s gift in the midst of the ordinary stuff of existence. This way of life – abundant not in money and possessions but in mercy and hope – is given not only for the sake of those who are its members. It is given that these might live for the sake of others, and indeed for the sake of all creation. The challenge is to discern how to live this way of life within a specific context, at your moment in history." (From the Preface)

The mission of adult education programs is to provide a supportive community that helps adults grow in faith.

Adult Education

Our Sunday morning speaker series provides a variety of topics for adult learning.  Recent presentations have included presentations on Sex + Faith: living our values with body and soul," Mindfulness, and What we Learned in Confirmation."  This coming fall we are excited to be offering "Healthy Parenting:  It's Not Rocket Science, Its' Harder," and "The Empty Chair at the Holiday Table."

Please check the Adult Education page for dates and topics.

 

Field Trips 

Over the past year, we have taken two field trips to New York City, visiting the Presbyterian Mission to the United Nations and the Museum of Jewish Heritage. Details about our upcoming trip to the New York Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular will be announced in the Events Calendar.  

Lunch and a Movie

Wednesdays at noon from Sept - May, Halldorson Hall. 

For those with free time during the day, this is a perfect opportunity for fellowship and discussion led by our Pastor, Ed Halldorson.  Each week, the group gathers to watch a segment from a film series and share their thoughts with one another.  

Bring your lunch - you'll quickly feel at home with this small and friendly group. Friends welcome. 

Bible Study

Thursdays, 9:30 – 11:00 am, Sept - May, Theos Room

This group meets during the school year. There is no need to be a Biblical scholar! Led by Rev. Halldorson.

Faith, Fellowship & Chocolate Book Club

This group is currently reading Sabbath by Wayne Muller.

“Wayne Muller shows us how to create a special time of rest, delight and renewal — a refuge for our souls.”

Meets regularly throughout the school year.  Please contact the church office for more information on meeting times and location.
