OPENING DOORS TO DISCIPLESHIP
The Life & Mission Committee of Presbytery is sponsoring participation in an online Bible Background course starting this fall. This is a free program in which you work individually and then get together with a group for discussion and questions. Pick up a flyer about this program in the entranceway, and sign up by September 15th if you would like to participate in a discussion group.
SUNDAY MORNING BIBLE STUDY
New participants are always welcome in our Sunday morning bible study group, which will resume on Sunday, September 20th. We meet at 9:30 a.m. in the church parlour. Come in through the parking lot side door, and stop by the kitchen for a coffee before joining the group upstairs in the parlour. We will begin the season with a study on the Gospel of Matthew.
You are invited to participate in a six-week book study on “Christianity for the Rest of Us: How the Neighbourhood Church is Transforming the Faith” by Diana Butler Bass. We will meet in the church parlour at 7:00 p.m. on Monday evenings October 19, 26, November 2, 9, 16 & 23.
This book shares the results of an exciting study of vital mainline congregations, and explores how these vital congregations develop community, reach out, and teach faith practices to their members. Let’s study this book together and consider what St. Andrew’s might learn from our Christian friends in other thriving congregations. Copies of the book are available for $15 from the church office.
