Class Update 6/27/10

Genesis Class,

Rodney Whitfield joined us on Sunday to answer questions and continue discussion about the Methodist Book of Discipline and Resolutions. The week after next, we will begin a series highly recommended by Rodney and Clayton. It is called Surprised by Hope by N.T. Wright. The author is one of the world's top biblical scholars and Bishop of Durham in the Church of England. It is a 6 week series with about a 15 minute DVD followed by a study guide led discussion. There is also a book that goes with the study. Jeff and I will purchase copies of the book and bring them to class for purchase if you would like. We will let you know how much once we check Amazon and a couple of stores. You do not have to have the book or read weekly, but we will have some books for those who wish to read along for class or while away.

WE WILL NOT BE MEETING NEXT SUNDAY. There is one service at 10am for 4th of July.

We still need 2 volunteers to teach Children's Sunday School on July 11th and 3 on August 1st at 9:45.

If Body & Soul gets up and running as planned, our first Sunday to serve will be September 19. We have promised to fill all 10 spots so if you would like to serve that Sunday you can start letting Brad M know.

Lunches for Little Kids still needs a few volunteers. See the following message from Jaclyn and reply to her if you are interested in volunteering:
Need volunteers: July 20,22,29 & August 5. On the dates in July we already have some volunteers, so we only need one or two. The only day we have no volunteers is August 5. We would love it if anyone could help out and fill in these spots. It usually takes about an hour and half to 2 hours. I have gone once and had a lot of fun.

Blaire and Ryan are working on a video to put on our website about our class. She needs pictures from socials, missions, etc. Please contact Blaire if you have any pictures or would like to provide either an interview or quote about the class depending on the video capabilities.

No joys or concerns this week.

Have a great week!
