October 9 and 16 Sunday morning sessions will be a discussion on prison reform and prisoner re-entry to society, focusing on the book Writing My Wrongs, by Shaka Senghor. Dan Justino, Executive Director a local re-entry program, EmergeCT, will be joining us. There are a few copies of the book on the Welcome Table. Please plan to attend even if you have not read the book.
Starting on Sunday, October 23rd, Bruce Gordon will lead a three Sunday series on Faith and Mental Health.
Our Intro to Worship Music class is open to all ages from infant to adult. The group does not rehearse for performance purposes – only for congregational singing. This is a helpful introduction for adults, youth, and children who would like to learn more about how to sing from the sheet music of a hymnal and follow along with lyrics in a bulletin, or simply to familiarize themselves with the tunes to be sung in worship that day. The class meets in the choir room from 10:30 – 10:45 a.m. on most Sundays from September to June.
The discussion of our two summer reading recommendations will take place during four consecutive adult education classes beginning on September 25. Please plan to attend these informative and thought provoking discussions even if you have not had a chance to read the books. Copies of the two books - Writing My Wrongs, by Shaka Senghor and Faithful Resistance: Gospel Visions For The Church In A Time Of Empire by Rick Ufford Chase are available on the Welcome Table.
Sept 25 & Oct 2: We will discuss the lessons in Faithful Resistance. The author, Rick Ufford Chase, will lead the Sept 25th discussion.
Oct 9 & Oct 16: We will discuss the lessions in Writing My Wrongs. Dan Jusino, Executive Director of EMERGE CT, will participate on these dates.
