Welcome Back Church Family! We know getting back to rhythms and routines can beÂ wonderful and exhausting. We hope to see you all sometime in the next several weeks!This Sunday: Theologians call it â€œworks righteousness:â€ the erroneous idea that being goodÂ can earn you Godâ€™s grace. Grace is NEVER earned, ALWAYS freely given. But still, JamesÂ 1:17-27 talks about doing the word. What does this mean? Pastor Susan Preaching.
Next Sunday: Back to Church Sunday! We will all want to visit and catch up, so bringÂ something from your cupboard for the fellowship table.Confirmation begins on September 23rd. It is an opportunity for young people to engage theirÂ questions as we discuss some of the fundamentals of the Christian faith. Please send usÂ an email if you have a young personâ€”usually grades 7 and 8, but weâ€™ll include othersâ€”whoÂ might benefit from the class.
Adult Education this year will focus on the same marvellous list of spiritual gifts as our olderÂ church school group: See Galatians 5:22-23. It will be offered the same Sundays as ChurchÂ school, making it easy for parents to join the class.We begin next week (September 9th)Â considering what it means to have â€œgifts of the spiritâ€. While the whole series has unity,Â individual classes will stand on their own, so join us when you can!
