Adult Bible Study
Sundays, 9:15 am in Parish Hall Balcony  

Our Sunday morning class, which resumes in September, welcomes adults who are interested in exploring the Christian story, by studying the scripture and applying those lessons learned to our present lives.  Hearing, reading, and wrestling with scripture helps us nurture the sensitivities, attitudes and abilities we need to live and work together as a community of faith.  Whether you were raised in the church, or if you're a more recent member, we welcome your voice in these discussions. Come as your schedule permits on the first room on the balcony. This class uses Feasting on the Word curriculum which explores the Bible passages used in our worship services.

Join us through the Sundays of July at 8:30AM as we read through and discuss Debby Irving’s book on race in America. If you think you’re unaffected by race issues, consider your thoughts on these quotes:
 “Race stands apart...Not only is race visible and permanent; it’s come to act as a social proxy for one’s value in American society.”or “White has long stood for normal and better, while black and brown have been considered different and inferior.”


Sunday, July 8 - Presented by Mark Hall
Sunday, July 15 - Presented by Laurel Braun
Sunday, July 22 - Presented by Rebecca Montague
Sunday, July 29 - Presented by Doug Braun

Passages - Ready or Not - A Program for Older Adults

1st Tuesday of the month starting in October

12:30 Lunch in the Oak Room   1:15 PM Program in Case Library

Throughout our lives we experience periods of stability and times of transition.   So it comes as no surprise the last stage of our life is also marked by various passages.   Many older adults face a change of lifestyle and a redefinition in the light of changed circumstances. On the first Tuesday of each month there's a gathering for adults who have reached this time of their life.   These programs focus on the topics that deal with the physical, spiritual and mental interests of older adults. The monthly programs will be announced in the Sunday bulletins, future newsletters and our monthly  postcard reminders.   For more information about this group or if you would like to be included in our postcard reminder list, please contact Debbie Katz at 884-9437, ext. 329 dkatz@westminster-bflo.org
