As part of our Wonder-Full Life series, there is a discussion opportunity around the book Integrating Money and Meaning by Maggie Kulyk. You’re welcome to buy the book, but the discussion guide that we have is thorough – you don’t actually have to read the book to have good discussion. (Your English teacher may not have told you that – but this pastor will!) So – if you’d like to join the discussion, with or without reading the book, here’s the deal: When: Mondays – November 11 and 18 from 5-6 p.m. (we’ll stop a bit before 6 if you need to get your kids before daycare closes) Where: Southminster Library If you want the discussion guide – email email@example.com (We’ll also have a few copies on Sunday, too).
When: Saturday, November 23, 2019 5:00 PM Where: Southminster Fellowship Hall Pizza will be provided. Bring your favorite dessert Childcare will be provided throughout the evening when kids need a break from all the activities. Pastor Beth will share a very short Advent video preparing us for the traditions of Advent as well as ideas for daily and/or weekly devotions or ideas for making the Advent Season a time of Joyful Waiting. Christmas craft stations for families to enjoy together with the kids. Enjoy making Christmas ornaments or gifts for special people in your lives together. Adults will have stations to discuss traditions, ways to bring Joy into the busy season, and create special homemade Christmas cards to share with special people throughout the season. Children can wear their pajamas for the Pajama Parade to share their cuteness. Make sure to also bring your favorite stuffed animal or blanket. Advent wreaths and candles will be provided for anyone who would like one to take home. After the festivities, adults are welcome to stay for popcorn and drinks while watching a favorite Christmas movie, TBA later.
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 1 st – It’s Movie Night! Our next worship series uses a lot of references from the movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life.” Clearly – we needed to give you all a chance to watch it. And THAT sounded like a chance to have some fun! We’ll gather just after 6-ish, have some pizza, popcorn and other surprises as we watch the movie. For those who have seen it enough to be “over” it, we’ll have some “It’s a Wonderful Life” Bingo with prizes. For those who haven’t seen it – this is your chance to right a wrong! And – we’ll have childcare folks on hand to help the kids enjoy their own movie. Or – if you want to be up to speed on the movie but can’t come on Friday and can’t watch it on your own before then – here’s a handy-dandy plot summary: https://www.filmsite.org/itsa3.html
Join us to try out your wonderful Halloween costumes and spend time with your neighbors. We’ll have food and treats along with a bounce house and face painting. Bring a friend. Saturday, October 26, 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. in the back parking lot. We look forward to seeing you!
Join us as we explore beliefs around the creation of our world through the lens of Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. Often positioned as opposing belief systems, you will hear personal and professional insights from a lifetime of helping people grapple with how humankind came to “be” in God’s image. There will be ample time for questions. Our guest lecturer, the Reverend Dr. David Kidd, taught anthropology before sensing God’s overwhelming call to pursue a life of Christian service, and eventually becoming a Presbyterian pastor. He served congregations in rural Appalachia and at Nashville’s Hillsboro Presbyterian Church for more than 37 years and has taught at Belmont University in the College of Theology and Christian Ministry. Pastor Kidd has both a Masters and Doctorate in Divinity. We will serve pizza and drinks starting at 6pm so you can come right after work. Childcare will be provided for toddlers through age 8. Babies and older children are welcome to stay with their parents.
