Lenten Bread and Broth Wednesdays, March 8–April 5, 6:30 p.m. in the Parlor
Come enjoy a simple soup supper and fel-lowship before a Lenten Bible study and re-flection. Our topic is “Gospeled Lives,” looking at the many encounters people had with Jesus in the gospels and how they might illuminate the ways we meet Jesus today. No assigned homework, but if you would like to do extended reading and devotions, you may order the book “Gospeled Lives: Encounters with Jesus,” by John Indermark. Available on Amazon or speak to Cheryl. We serve two soups each Wednesday, at least one which is vegetarian. If you are able to make soup and/or bring bread, please speak to coordinator Delores Paulk (email@example.com or 215-621-7296).

Confirmation class begins for 6-8th graders on the first Sunday of Advent, November 27th. Ben Brandt and Jared Whalen are lead teachers (with others helping). The class will meet during the Sunday School hour, and this winter will focus on the book of Luke as a way to explore questions of faith while gaining a deeper understanding of the life, death and resurrection of Christ. Thank you to Ben and Jared for taking on this commitment. We are excited! Cheryl Pyrch and MK Dean will be working with High School students beginning in January.
