Class Update 8/9

We wrapped up our class discussion on The Shack this week. A big "Thanks" to Cat and the Welborns for finding and preparing discussion topics for the class. Marilyn Dickson will be leading class on Aug 23, to give her perspective on the book. In the mean time, the Welborns will be leading class this week on a mystery topic, known only to Cale. :)

Starting Aug 30, we will be watching and discussing a documentary about different religions of the world. We'll spend 3 weeks on this discussion, but due to holidays and service projects, they won't be consecutive weeks... They'll be Aug 30, Sep 13 and Sep 27.

Mission Work:
We won't have a lesson on Sep 6, since many will be absent due to the Labor Day weekend. Then, on Sep 20, we'll be volunteering at Operation Kindness' Dog Day Afternoon at Whiterock Lake.

We also have another "opportunity" to serve... Fred Trevino stopped me in the hall this week after class and asked if we'd been approached to help setup for the "Laugh and Rejoice" program that the Senior Adult Ministry is hosting on Sep 12. He asked if our class could help set up tables on the evening of Friday, Sep 11, like we did last year. I told him that I thought that we'd be able to help them out, so please let me know (an email would be fine) if you can help out that evening. There's not much to it, really. They just need people to put the place settings on a bunch of tables in the Family Life Center. It's easy work and they'll feed us pizza when it's done! We actually had fun "serving" in this way last year, and it's good PR for the Genesis class... :) So, let me know if you can help this year.

Social Event:
Our next social event will be a pool party at the Beathards on Sat, Aug 29. Does having a margarita machine at the party obligate us to a Mexican theme? Look for the evite to find directions and details. Everyone bring your own beverages, and an appetizer to share. And don't forget a bathing suit and towel.

Joys and Concerns:
Amanda M's mom had surgery on Friday as part of her treatment for breast cancer. The doctors are optimistic that things are going well and she is making progress, but please continue to pray for her recovery.
