All women of the church are invited to the Gathering on Monday, October 9th, in the RL Pope Room. Dinner will begin at 6:00pm. We will have a speaker from the Bethlehem Center in Winston-Salem. We will begin our new program book for 2017-2018 titled Sacred Spaces: Encounter with God and Neighbor. Lynn Poole will present an environmentally friendly project. Please bring toiletries for CCM.

UPDATE ON OUR FALL BIBLE STUDY

The book is entitled Five Means of Grace: Experiencing Love the Wesleyan Way by Elaine Heath. It is a five week study and will fit neatly into the fall schedule following the Finch Preaching Mission which comes early this year. (October 1-3) I am thinking we will start the second week in October and still be able to end before Thanksgiving. I am eager to get started and I know you are as well. I’ll keep you posted.
