Here are the announcements for this week:
1. Fall Sunday Schedule Begins: Don’t forget that Sunday School starts again this week. Sunday morning prayer is at 8:15 AM in the Conference Room. Sunday School for all ages is at 9:00 AM.
2. Worship: Worship is at 10:00 AM. Shaun will be preaching from Exodus 4:18-31.
3. Adult Sunday School: This Sunday, September 10th (at 9:00 in the main worship area) Jeff and Elsa will be updating us on their time in Botswana. Starting September 17th there will be two different adult Sunday School class offerings:
“The Pastor’s Class”: Shaun will be revisiting our Foundations Classes. This series of classes begins at the beginning of the Christian faith with an introduction to basic Christian beliefs. We then move into next steps in the life of the believer. Eventually we walk our way through skills for growth and major doctrinal building blocks. This is a series of classes that has been taught before so, assuming a smaller group of attendees, we’ll start out meeting in Shaun’s office.
“How (not) to Be Secular”: Tim Gustafson and Bob Bondurant will be teaching a class discussing how to live in an age in which, as philosopher Charles Taylor writes, belief in God “is understood to be one option among others, and frequently not the easiest to embrace.” There will be a more thorough description forthcoming but that should whet your appetite. This class will meet in the main worship area.
4. Women’s Group: Ladies, don’t forget that Diana is organizing a women’s group starting Tuesday, September 12th. The group will meet on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month, 9:00-11:00am. Children are welcome at the meetings. If you plan to attend, please email Diana: firstname.lastname@example.org
