Drop-in discussion Mondays in minister’s study – 1 to 2pm
You are invited to a small group meeting on Mondays between 1pm and 2 pm. The questions explored will be – “What happened with/to you during yesterday’s services?” and “What questions, events, stories are awakened for you from the readings for next Sunday?” The minister’s study is in the Hall behind the church.
A plant sales table will operate in the Gathering Area after morning services until December 1 (sooner if interest is waning). Lists will be available for you to indicate what you would like to add to your garden or what you can offer for sale. You are also welcome to bring along plants, BUT those unsold would need to be taken home again as they cannot be looked after at church during the week. Inquiries to Lee Somerville.
Copies of last week’s sermon are available in the resource stand inside the George Street doors, as well as on the website.
