FAMILY PROMISE

Sunday is the start of our first Family Promise hosting session for 2019.  We will be hosting homeless families in our Children’s Ministry classrooms until Sunday, February 3rd.  We’re still in need for a volunteer to be the overnight host on Saturday, March 2nd.  If you’re able to volunteer, please use the following link to sign up https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080f4da4ae2ba7ff2-jan.  Also, send prayers for the families we are serving, as well as the many volunteers needed to support this important mission.  Thank you, Family Promise Leadership Team!

ADULT EDUCATION

Sundays: Pastor Scott is leading The Hebrew Prophets - A Six Part Class at 10:10 a.m. in RM 355.  The class runs January 27, February 4 & 24, and March 3 & 10.  See the Adult Education signs for the syllabus.

Monday Evenings: Jan Bartlett is leading New Ways To Read The Bible from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. in RM 355.  We’ll be focusing on Jesus and first century life, the gospel of John, and the differences between fundamentalism and progressive Christianity.  How we think about God, Jesus and the Bible matters greatly.  As the Ringling Brothers said, “Come to be amazed!”

Lectionary Change: In an effort to study for the Bible content exam, Terresa will be taking a brief 6-week leave of absence from directing the lectionary class and will be participating in Scott's class on the Prophets.  The lectionary class will be self-guided with all materials made available.

BAGBY ORGAN AND ORCHESTRA CONCERT

Our recently upgraded sanctuary organ will be featured in the annual Bagby Memorial Concert on Monday, January 28th at 7:00 p.m.  Dr. Kenneth Udy will perform as organ soloist with the Young Artist Chamber Players, a string orchestra of high school honor students under the baton of Jack Ashton, in the Western U.S. premiere of the Organ Concerto in A Minor by French-Canadian composer, Denis Bédard.  Marian Florence will also be soloing on violin in Albinoni's famous Adagio.  The brilliant five-movement work showcases the new effects and sounds now available on our organ.  Please mark your calendars now and plan to attend this special event!
