Lenten Study, Monday evenings, Feb. 25-Apr. 1 at 6 PM
Join us at First Presbyterian Church for six consecutive Monday evenings at 6 PM to study how people with white skin can help become bridge-builders to people of color. The curriculum covers topics that help open eyes and hearts to the lived realities of African Americans.
Lenten Study, Thursday evenings, March 6-April 10
Everyone is invited to participate in a Lenten study at First Presbyterian Church on Thursdays at 5:00 p.m. The class is a study of daily meditations on African American spiritual songs by Luke A. Powery, Were You There? Lenten Reflections on the Spirituals. The selections of lament are appropriate for our consideration during the season of repentance and reflection. Plan to read the book daily and bring back comments each week for discussion. If you are interested, call Alice Delambre at 696-4046 so she can order a book for you.
Dinner Party Groups are back!
Starting in March, SFPC will again organize small group gatherings with an emphasis on food and fellowship, every two months for half a year. Groups will be formed based on sign ups, and may be a mixture of couples and singles with a target size of around eight individuals per group. Groups will plan their own dinners - hosted, potluck, carry-out or dine-in - whatever sounds good to the group. The same groups will meet for dinners in March, May, and July, giving them a chance to get to know each other better. After that, new groups will be formed for the fall/winter. There's lots more information in the 2/19 church newsletter (look in the column to the right or below under "The Courier" and click on "Newsletter 2-19-19") or you can contact Ellen Collins or Brent Sweger to learn more. Let's break bread together!
