Saturday, December 14th
Gather your family, call your friends, now is the time to plan your big trip to NY City to see the Christmas sights! Don't stress about driving and parking. Instead, enjoy the trip to take on Manhattan in a relaxing ride on a comfortable Motorcoach! The group will arrive in NY City around 11:00 AM to be dropped off at Macy's for Christmas shopping or in the Times Square area. Design your day in New York "Your Way." Power shop in famous stores, see the sights, explore world-class museums, feast in a fine restaurant, or take in a dazzling show. There are so many choices. A New York City Visitors guide will be supplied to everyone a few weeks prior to the trip date. This will assist you in planning your day. After an unforgettable day, the motorcoach will depart for home at 7:00 PM giving everyone some time to enjoy the Christmas lights.
The cost is $40 per adult and $35 per child (under 12 years old).
This trip has filled up, however, if you would like to be placed on a wait list in case there are cancellations, please contact Tom or Wendy Brynan.
Women's Book Club
On Tuesday, February 4th and 11th, join the conversation to discuss a familiar topic - God's view on women and their role in his plan - but with a new perspective.
For centuries, the role of women in the church has been a subdued one, with many limitations. The time has come, argues Sarah Bessey—to take a new look at Scripture and challenge old assumptions.
In Jesus Feminist, Bessey shares her spiritual journey, which ranged from growing up in a post-gender-debate home to learning about the worldwide struggles of women and the obstacles even a well-meaning church can pose. Through disarmingly intimate storytelling, she tells how she grew to understand the story of God and the vastness of his work through women. Never one to shy away from the hard questions, Bessey engages critically with Scripture and church practices that are often used against full equality and shares how following Jesus made a feminist out of her.
More information to come. Location TBD depending on number of registrants. No childcare provided.
