This Week on Shabbat
Drash by Rabbi David Schiller
The Gospel to the Jews
Second half of Roman’s Nine
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2:00 – 3:30 PM Tim Hayes will be teaching a special workshop on
Pride & Humility after Oneg.


Saturday, December 29, from 2:30 to 3:30 PM

Andrew Green will be giving a seminar on biblical nutrition.


We are doing general casting for the upcoming Purim play in the spring, gauging who wants to be involved and at what level.  Actors, singers, and crew: help with sets, props, costumes, lighting, and sound, are all encouraged to participate.  If you have no experience, a willingness to learn is enough.
There are no age restrictions, but you must be able to behave and be responsible for yourself.  See Rusty Acheson or Ben Wilcox

Healing rooms
During the Praise and Worship there are rooms available in the offices for all spiritual  needs.   See one of the ushers for directions during the Praise and Worship service prior to the Message.
Do you have a prayer room testimony? We’d like to share and encourage others with the wonders that our God has done for you! Please contact Kathleen below.
