A Journey Through End of Life Issues
Tuesday, October 6-27, 11-12:15 p.m., on Zoom
So often, we do not want to think about the end of our life. Yet, it is inevitable. As Mark Twain said, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” We will explore ways of talking about how to have difficult conversations with family and friends. Discussions will be held on Advance Directives, POLSTs (come and see what this means) and other documents. Have you ever thought of writing your obituary and planning your own funeral? Or what about Legacy planning? This series is open everyone. All are welcome, no exceptions! For more information and to register, contact Cindy Campos at ccampos@stbartschurch.org.

ADULT FORMATION
Who is Your Jesus?
Wednesday, September 2-16, 10:30 a.m. & 7 p.m., on Zoom
We seem to be living in a world and country that is hard to recognize. A terrible pandemic is ravaging the nation and the world. There are riots in our streets. We have an unbelievable national debt. Our country is divided. Here’s a question, what would Jesus do today if he was here with us? How would he lead us out of this mess, encourage us, guide us and care for us? Join us for a three-part course to explore these questions and much more. Each session will be one hour in length and offered on Zoom at 10:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. so everyone can attend. We will explore a new question each week – Who was Jesus? Who is Jesus to you? How would Jesus lead us out of this mess? Please join us at either time as we take this road to see who Jesus really is to all of us.

If you have question, contact Bob Capettini.
