This Week's News

DROP IN APPOINTMENTS AT CAL | Don't have an appointment? That's okay! Stop by CAL any time during posted hours to see if we're free for a drop-in consultation.

LECTIONARY GROUP | MONDAY EVENINGS | 7:30 PM | OSACL MEETING ROOM | Lectionary group for all who are interested will start meeting on Monday nights We'll read and reflect on the week's scripture lessons, and develop ideas for sermons, liturgy, songs, and hymns for the coming week. You are invited whether you lead worship weekly or only occasionally. It will be a time to meditate on the word, dream, brainstorm, plan, and share. You can attend whether you are working on a sermon/service for that particular week or not. Your ideas might bring someone else's sermon to life. Even if you don't come from a church that uses the lectionary but would like to study and reflect on Scripture together you are welcome! Bring a Bible, a sketchpad or notebook, and any hymnal or worship books you might want to use. Contact Colleen Cook if you have any questions.
