Special Thank You from the Harpster’s
Both Johanna and I want to thank all for their many prayers and cards during this
Christmas Season. Both Johanna and I had a blessed Christmas at home particularly
since our younger son Matthew was with us. Johanna is in good spirits and gaining
in strength each day. Please continue to keep her in your prayers.
SOUPFEST January 8, 2017
In the Social Room immediately following our Church Service
This is the event you have been waiting for.
We have decided to move Soupfest to the Church so that we do not have to limit the
number of people invited. As in the past, we will supply salad and bread.
Please bring a soup to enter into the contest for Soup of the Year. You are all the judges.
The contest and prizes will be the same.
Please let Lisha know what you are bringing as this is SoupFest and hopefully we will
get lots of soups.
Come One, Come All....Lisha and Fred
Lenten Bible Study
For the 2017 Lenten season, plans are to focus on Christianity’s most famous prayer,
the Lord’s Prayer.
We will be using John Dominic Crossan, The Greatest Prayer:
Rediscovering the Revolutionary Message of the Lord’s Prayer. New York: HarperCollins, 2011.
It is a prayer that we say together every Sunday in our worship together.
Moreover, it is a prayer that most of us know by heart and one we carry with us
wherever we go.
Nevertheless, familiarity can have its negatives, the main one assuming we know
the spiritual depths our Lord is affirming in this model for prayer.
Cost for the book is $11.00. See Bill Kneebone for a copy. The six sessions in the
Ladies Parlor will run from Wednesday, March 1 – Wednesday, April 5 at 2:00 P.M.
