Dear Friends in Christ,
Coming up, we will be starting some new discipleship opportunities.
First, we will be starting a prayer group for the month of August! We will gather together to pray for our prayer list, for our church and community, and for the concerns we are dealing with. We will meet on Tuesday mornings during August starting Tuesday, August 3 at 10:00-10:30am. Please join me in the sanctuary for this time of prayer.
Second, I will be leading a Bible Study beginning Wednesday, September 1 at 10:00-11:30am. We will be doing Adam Hamilton’s study on Peter – “an ordinary fisherman who heard an extraordinary call. He left everything to follow his teacher and possessed a passion that would change the world. That’s one way to describe Peter. Here’s another: poor, uneducated, quick-tempered, and full of doubts and fears. Doesn’t even sound like the same man. And that’s the point of Simon Peter, a six-week adult Bible study by Adam Hamilton. Peter was just an ordinary guy who heard and followed God’s extraordinary call. Discover how you, too, have special gifts, talents, and abilities that God can use to make a difference today.”
The book will be $12.49. Please sign-up on the sheet for a book as you enter the sanctuary by Sunday, August 15, so that we have time to order the them.
Also, if you are interested in doing a Bible study but could only do an evening study, please let me know. If we have enough interest, we can also start an evening group.
Finally, here are a few last things about myself using the story pages as inspiration:
My Favorite Christian Season: I love the Easter season! I also love Pentecost Sunday, because I don’t think we celebrate the Holy Spirit enough.
Most Memorable/Meaningful Thing: Baptizing my two daughters
One Surprising Blessing: How God has continually guided me to opportunities to grow in my faith and in my love of God, others, and myself
Hobbies: Reading – I love to read! I also enjoy playing games with my family, and I am a fan of the Washington Nationals and Washington Capitals.
I look forward to continuing to get to know each of you!
