JOYFUL NOISE HANDBELL CHOIR I f you've ever thought about ringing with the bell choir, now would be a good time to stand up and be counted! You don't need to know anything about bells. Short-term commitments (a month at a time) welcome! If you're interested, talk with Gretchen or Fred. The bell choir rehearses most Wednesdays from 6:00 p.m.- 7:30 the meeting room.
TRUTH SEEKERS will continue to discuss Jesus as a man whose culture and worldview were shaped by the Aramaic language.  Aramaic is a Semitic language closely related to Hebrew and Arabic, and it was the language spoken by the common people in Judea including Jesus and his followers.  We will study two books,  The Hidden Gospel: Decoding the Spiritual Message of the Aramaic Jesus and Murder at Armageddon: A Judas Thomas Mystery.  These books can be ordered from Amazon or local bookstores.
