A Service of Remembrance - 5:30 p.m., Chapel
For those who have experienced the loss of a loved one during the past year, Christmas can be a very lonely and difficult time. You’re invited to attend whether you’ve lost a loved one or wish to support friends who have. Celebrate the lives of those who have passed, as we celebrate the birth of the One who gives eternal life.
No supper or other activities.

January 3, 10, 17 and 24

January Bible Study - 6:15 p.m., Flamming Hall
Dr. Bert Browning, former Senior Pastor of Huguenot Road Baptist Church is our January Bible Study guest teacher. Dr. Browning leads us in Singing the Faith, drawing from the Psalms, the oldest recorded hymnal of our Judeo-Christian faith tradition. During the first four Wednesday evenings of 2018, we explore the role of music and worship in the ancient Hebrew world and in our own. We’ll cover the four basic types of psalms (praise, lament, royal and wisdom) and consider the key role of expressing emotion in shaping and proclaiming our faith in God.
