“Faith Today”

   Wednesdays
   12:00–1:00 p.m. in the Gratz Center

“Faith Today,” offered through the Center for Life and Learning (CLL), is a “hybrid” Bible study: part fellowship, part practice of the ancient prayer style of lectio divina, part learning about scripture, and part prayers of the people. All bring a hunger for a greater understanding of how God’s word can inform and shape our lives.

Led by CLL Program Coordinator Susan Quaintance, this class is open to anyone on a drop-in basis, and no RSVP is required. All ages and walks of faith are welcome.

Susan Quaintance holds an M.A. in theology from St. John’s University in Collegeville, Minnesota. She taught high school theology and English for more than twenty years and has facilitated many adult days of recollection and retreats.

Horizons: A Monthly Women’s Bible Study

   Second and fourth Wednesday of each month
   Next meetings: Wednesday, Novembe 13 and 27
   12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m.
   Room 5H in the Gratz Center

Interested in taking part in a Bible study that has been field tested by women's groups all over the country? Join us for a bi-monthly women's Bible study, offered through Women at Fourth, based on the guide from Horizons magazine.

In November our focus will be lesson three of “Loved Carved in Stone: Keep Sabbath.” The purpose of lesson three is to gain an understanding of the gift of Sabbath and to recover the urgency of Sabbath in restoring order to our lives. The scripture readings are: Exodus 20:8-11, Deuteronomy 5:12-15, and Mark 2:23-28.

With the stresses of the holiday season approaching, this is a very appropriate time of the year to take some time to examine how we might pause and refresh our spirits. Sabbath is the the time that God has given us; a gift, to remember that we are not in charge.

Please join us on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month. Contact Anne Ellis for more information.
