Mission Box
This week's mission box supports Mercy Chefs. Principally focused on providing disaster relief, their team regularly responds to national emergencies and natural disasters at home and abroad. In addition to emergency response, they make use of their equipment, skills, and volunteers by meeting existing needs within urban communities, establishing permanent kitchens in places with ongoing hardship, and installing water purification systems for communities without access to potable water.

Adult Ministries
The Return of the Prodigal Son: "The Parable of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15: 11-32) is a biblical parable that nearly everyone can relate to. During this book discussion we will be reading Henri Nouwen's book, The Return of the Prodigal Son, which explores a variety of spiritual themes all pointing to one question: "Where has my struggle led me?" This book takes readers on a detailed journey through three parts diving into each of the three main characters of the parable: the younger son, the elder son, and the father. In the book, Nouwen reflects on his own life experiences as they relate to the parable, and in the class, participants will be encouraged to do the same. Henri Nouwen was inspired to write this book after experiencing Rembrandt's famous painting Prodigal Son, which hangs in St. Petersburg, Russia, and the painting serves as a way for readers to visualize many of the parable's themes. Please come prepared to discuss the intersection between scripture, life, and art! Register here
