Ladies Brunch and Fashion Show
Ladies (ages 5 and older) join us on Saturday, March 4, from 10:00 a.m. to noon for brunch, followed by a fashion show put on by Goodwill. The show will feature a history of “The Little Black Dress,” from the 1890’s through today. There will also be a “boutique” featuring quality donated accessories. You do not need to own a little black dress to attend, but you are more than welcome to dress up in one if you like! This is a great event to bring a friend or neighbor to! Sign up at the table in the Narthex by February 19. For more information, contact the church office.
Adult Education Hour
Join us on Sunday mornings (11:00-11:45 a.m, North Hall B) for a series on “Faith and Science.” Many of us struggle with a perceived conflict between faith and science and how to relate the findings of science to the content of Scripture. We wonder how the findings of biology and astronomy relate to early Genesis and the biblical account of creation and humanity. We will examine a number of issues where tension is found between faith and science, as well as considering a proper understanding more broadly between the relation of faith and science. We hope you will join us for this important series.
Sermon series on sexuality
Chris Ganske, pastor of our sister church—City Reformed Church—is presenting a year-long sermon series entitled “Something Beautiful for God: A Christian Vision for Sexuality.” You can find the audio recordings on the City Reformed Church website.
