Adult Ministries

Adult Ed. Continuing our series on “Looking at Literature through a Christian Lens,” we will begin our discussion of Jodi Picoult’s “Small Great Things” led by Stephanie Cobb and Nancy Colina. Sessions take place on Jan. 21 and 28. The series will end in February when we discuss Leonard Pitts’ “Grant Park” on February 4 and 11, led by Dr. Loren Scribner. Both are good current novels, meant to be enjoyed, but as with anything we do, we will also frame them in the context of Christianity. Read the books at your leisure, then come discuss them with your church family.

Men’s and Women’s Retreats.
This is the last Sunday to sign up and pay for the Women's Retreat. The Rev. Michelle Henrichs will lead the women on January 27, 9am-3pm, at Livonia Marriott to discuss Sabbath. Cost for Women's one-day retreat will be $40. For the Men's Retreat, there is still time, but we urge you to do it now. Men will meet for their retreat February 9-10 at St. Paul’s of the Cross, led by Fr. Phil Dinwiddie from St. James. Cost for the Men's Retreat will be $115. Reservations are being taken at the Crossroads.
