An Altar in the World Study Group

An Altar in the World Study Group

Barbara Brown Taylor’s book, An Altar in the World, challenges readers to learn about the ways of God by paying attention to the world and by embracing the sacred in the everyday parts of life. A small study group is being formed to walk together through this book. This will be a time of discussion and sharing for those who would like to participate.
 
Dianne Fuller and Ruth DuCharme will be leading a six-week spiritual formation study of the book, An Altar in the World. The group will meet at 7:00 p.m. on Monday evenings beginning on February 2. The first meeting will be held at the home of Ruth DuCharme. Participants should be willing to commit to the entire six weeks and will need to purchase a book for the class and read the first two chapters for the first meeting. You can purchase the book at amazon.com.

Those who are interested in participating should give their name to Dianne or Ruth by Wednesday, January 28.

Children's Trip to Snow Mountain—2/7/14

Children's Trip to Snow Mountain—2/7/14

A trip to Stone Mountain’s Snow Mountain has been planned for our first through sixth graders and their families. We will travel to Snow Mountain on Saturday, February 7, for an afternoon of tubing, sledding, building snow creatures, and throwing snowballs at each other. The evening will conclude with dinner together at a restaurant near Stone Mountain.
 
The cost for this event is $10 for each person who plans to play in the snow, plus the cost of supper. Adults who prefer not to play in the snow can watch from observation decks at no cost. We will plan to leave the church at 12:30 p.m. and return by 8:00 p.m. Children should be accompanied by an adult to this event, as a matter of fact, you are encouraged to bring your whole family! We will be playing in real snow, so you will want to dress accordingly.
 
The most important detail is that you must sign up with Ruth DuCharme by Wednesday, January 21. This will enable us to make our group reservation and secure our time slot to play in the snow. Be sure to contact Ruth or sign the list that is located in the children’s area of the church. When you sign up, please indicate how many in your family will need tickets to play in the snow and how many will just be observing.
