Sunday Bible StudyJoin Jeff Brandt and Rayne Cumberworth as we meet each Sunday at 9 AM in the Conference Room. All adults and youth are invited to this time of Bible Study.

Beginning Sunday, June 26th, we will be studying the biography Martin Luther, a Life, by Martin Marty (Penguin, 2005), and welcome all who would like to join us in anticipation of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation in 2017.

The book is a brief overview of Luther’s life (under 200 pages!), by a distinguished Luther scholar, and has been called “a sterling biography of history’s irascible reformer,” and “one of the best short biographies of Luther in English.”

Folks can obtain the book in advance, or we will have some copies available at our first meeting.

quilt_1647cLCIF’s Quilting Group has been working very hard to make quilts for Lutheran World Relief. We have all the supplies and equipment—we just need hands to help. No experience is necessary and if you can’t stay for the whole time, please come when you can and stay as long as you can—we’ll find a job for you. This is a great way to do “God’s Work. Our Hands.” Please consider joining us in this venture. Please see Estelle Segaitz if you have questions. We meet each week, though the days vary according to the Women’s Bible Study schedule. We’ll be working together on Tuesday, June 28, from 10 AM to 2 PM. ALL are welcome!
