“Employing Hope” Bible Study for Job Seekers.
We’re pleased to offer a Bible study especially for job seekers, beginning in early July. It’s not news that COVID-19 has hit our economy ridiculously hard—and that doesn’t just mean the national economy, but the jobs, bank accounts, and credit scores of real people. Unemployment is now higher than any time since the Great Depression. Our goal in this Bible study is to encourage job seekers by discovering how Biblical and contemporary believers have found direction and peace in difficult times. While this is not a “job coaching” group, we will offer tips and tools, many of which are online, to help people along the way.
“Employing Hope” has 20 short units which will be sent electronically to the participants. We’ll see if we can do three each week as homework, and then meet once a week via videoconference to talk about what we’re learning. We expect that members will be blessed by just sharing their pilgrimage with others in similar circumstances. The study will be led by Fr. David Kletzing. For more information contact Fr. David at: email@example.com. Each unit includes a reading from the Bible, followed by guided questions for personal reflection, “Points to Ponder” pertaining to career, financial steps, job seeking tips, etc. We will encourage participants to keep a journal of what they’re learning along the way. Material for this Bible study comes from Biblica (formerly, the International Bible Society). www.biblica.com
On Sunday April 19th we will begin a new Sunday morning sermon series that will explore the Old Testament book of Proverbs.
An adult Saturday morning book study will begin on Saturday January 25th (note this change of date) from 10:00-11:30 a.m. at the Ministry Center. We’ll meet every other Saturday morning through the end of March. This study will delve into the book, The Divine Embrace by Robert Webber. It traces Christian spirituality from the ancient church to the present and then explores living out God’s story in our individual lives, as well as our life together as the church. We ask each person attending to purchase a copy of The Divine Embrace on their own. Books are available through Christianbook.com, or good used copies can be purchased through other vendors at amazon.com. Please be careful when purchasing your book. There is another book by the same name written by Ken Gire. Make sure you purchase The Divine Embrace by Robert E. Webber. This will be an important study as we learn to live our lives in response to God’s love in today’s world. We hope you will be part of the study. Please let Deacon Phil (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Father George (email@example.com) know if you plan to attend.
Game Night is held on the third Friday of each month. We begin at 6:30 PM with dinner (usually pizza). Bring your favorite games and snacks and friends!
NO GAME NIGHT ON THE 20th.
