This week we’ll take a look at the very scary and often abused subject of…evangelism (cue scary, suspenseful music…)
Telos on Tap – Who says you can’t drink at Wednesday night church? You can when it’s Telos on Tap and it’s held at Black Abbey Brewery on Sidco! Wednesday, January 22, 2020 from 6-8. This month’s topic – What is the Beloved Community?
Come with an appetite and your opinions, ideas, hopes and dreams for and about Telos. At our usual brunch time, we’ll gather in small groups to plan ways to implement our 3 areas of focus: Worship, Service, Community. Each group will be a group for up to 8 weeks (unless they decide to go longer). This is all to get us closer to our Big Huge Audacious Goal for 2020: That we will be able to tell about how we flopped Godward in various ways. We’ll meet once a month during brunch. Each table at brunch will be an “ad hoc” committee, focused around one of our three areas of Worship, Service and Community. Each table will only exist as an “ad hoc” committee for a maximum of 8 weeks (unless they choose a longer project) Each table will choose something to do in their area, divide it up amongst themselves get-r-done! But what if I’m not there on January 19th? Just email Beth (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let her know which area you’d like to be connected with, and we’ll let that table know (and hopefully they won’t give you ALL the jobs in abstentia…) Can you give me some examples?

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.
