Men's Study


Adult Sunday School Class will resume class on

Sunday September 17  in the Westminister room at 9:00 am.

 Screwtape Letters

They begin the year with the study from C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters which they will study through November 26. Everyone welcome to attend class and participate in the study.   

The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis is a classic masterpiece of religious satire that entertains readers with its sly and ironic portrayal of human life and foibles from the vantage point of Screwtape, a highly placed assistant to the "Our Father Below."  At once wildly comic, deadly serious, and strikingly original, C.S. Lewis's The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging account of temptation- and triumph over it -ever written.

 Vineyard IV 

"What a Gift !" 

When the Magi arrived with their gifts for the baby Jesus, it was a baby shower like not other !  Join us for this Vineyard as we take a closer look at the spiritual significance of the gifts they presented, namely Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh.  We will then examine the Christian journey to the stable as we consider what might be a suitable gift that we can offer the Christ child.  

You are invited to join the Vineyard on Sunday Mornings during Advent.

December 3, 10,17, & 24 at 9:00 am in the Westminister Room.
