Good News for All:
The Gospel of Luke
Study led by Rev. Dr. Marcus McFaul
Tuesdays, 7 pm, Lounge, beginning Sept. 17
Luke's Gospel is uniquely inclusive, involving all people. The Good News is for the outcast and the establishment, for the religious and those searching.  Luke speaks to women, to men, to the strong and healthy, to the weak and dispossessed. Its relevance today inspires faith, spirituality and action. There is room for three more people to enroll in this study. Reserve your spot by Monday, September 16 by emailing Workbook is $22 to be paid at the first meeting.

Planning Meeting for Humanitarian Crisis Response

The group that devised a statement published in last week’s local newspapers will hold an organizational/planning meeting to focus on Binkley’s response to the Humanitarian Crisis in our country. It will be held Sunday, September 22, 2019 in the Fellowship Hall immediately following the 11:00 Worship Service (approximately 12:30 pm).  We will discuss creation of several possible subgroups focusing on various types of response. We will also seek additional input on possible directions and activities. We are eager to directly address the inhumane and unjust treatment that so many are facing in our country. Bring a bag lunch; drinks and desserts will be provided. All are welcome! Gary Stutts, Moderator
