Wednesday Morning Bible Study: Heaven
Gather at 9:15am; begin study at 9:30am; Room 111
Heaven is hard for us to picture. We think of floating on clouds, singing praises and playing harps, or walking on streets of gold. While we know we want to go to heaven, we are a little nervous about what it will be like. These Bible studies provide a Biblical perspective on heaven- something richer and more exciting that we can imagine.
Everyone has a faith story and when faith stories are shared, both the speaker and the hearer are blessed. In the season of Lent, Pastor Eric will be asking individuals in our faith community to share their faith journey and how they’ve experienced God through their life. In a conversational style, Pastor Eric will interview a variety of people, helping them navigate their faith story. At the end, others will be able to ask questions bubbling up in their hearts. The spirit of this sharing will be safe, gracious, and respectful, honoring the gift the speaker shares. The hope is when we experience the God stories of others, we better recognize the God stories in our own lives.

Book Discussion: “A Man Called Ove”
Wed., April 26; 6:30pm; Conference Room
“A Man Called Ove” is the next book selected for discussion. Ove is a curmudgeon—the kind of man who points at people he dislikes, has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. But behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. Author, Fredrik Backman’s novel about the angry old man next door is a thoughtful exploration of the profound impact one life has on countless others and is a heartwarming story about transformation. Books are available in OneSent for $10.
