Sermon Series
DIY: A Faith of Your Own But Not On Your Own
Few Christians arrive at a set of beliefs that they can set in stone for the rest of their lives.  What we believe evolves in response to insights into the Bible, the Christian tradition, questions and changes in life circumstances, or things that happen in the larger world.  Faith is a living thing.  But sometimes it’s hard to articulate what we believe.  The purpose of this sermon series is to help you name a faith of your own.  Subjects covered include: God, Christ, Holy Spirit, evil, and the church.

TNT Event Friday, October 2, 7 pm
The TNT group is getting together at Billy G’s in Kirkwood on October 2 at 7:00pm.  TNT used to stand for twenties and thirties (age) group.  We have kept the name, but the age group has expanded a bit.  The group is a dinner and special activity group that meets a few times a year.  There’s no agenda really, just time with folks from church.  Free childcare is offered at the church beginning at 6:30 pm.  RSVP to Beth Willock if you can come and/or need childcare.
