December 2016 Christian Education News

The Men's Group will meet at its usual day and time, which is 2nd and 4th Mondays at 7:00 PM at Foli's Place, 1050 Brinton Rd, (next to the CoGo’s).
Tuesday Morning Book Club
The Jesus I Never Knew by renowned author Philip Yancey lives up to its title. This book opens our eyes up to the world in which Jesus lived and moved and had his being. We will uncover new insights in the life and death of the Risen Lord. This group meets Tuesday mornings at 10:00AM at Rhonda Apessos’ home (361 Maple Ave.)
BLOCKS (Believing Little Ones Can Know and Serve)
provides a fun and casual setting for our youngest friends to learn and play. Each session, we focus on a different word (or “building block”). This December – no surprise here – we’re talking about Jesus! Please join us for this special Christmas-themed edition of BLOCKS. We will sing (and dance and jump) our way through the Christmas story. A small craft and playtime will follow the lesson. Youthful energy and exuberance is most welcome as we celebrate the new life, new hope, and new joy the wonderful Child brings. Please spread the word to your friends, family, and neighbors to join us on Tuesday, Dec. 6th, at 6:30 in the nursery. Caregivers should attend with children (program is geared for kids ages toddler to kindergarten).
Wednesday Night Bible Study
Pastor Michael will be leading classes during the season of Advent. Let us wait and prepare for God’s incarnation together. Join us on Wednesday evenings through the Advent season 7:00 p.m. in the Lounge.
