Women's Java Jams Study Women’s Java Jams study Mondays 8:30-10:00 a.m. Java Jams meets Mondays at 8:30 a.m. exploring the Advent study "When God Comes Down" by James A. Harnish through December 16 and will then take a break until January 6.
Welcome Study. Our council asks your help in creating a statement of welcome to Gay Christians. You may wonder why. Aren’t we welcoming already? Our surveys last year said no, we aren’t so welcoming and so this flows out of our strategic initiative on hospitality. But doesn’t the ELCA have such a welcome already? Isn’t that why we suffered such conflict the last 4 years? But no, the ELCA voted that they wouldn’t kick out churches that made their own decisions about how to welcome gays. They did not push any kind of welcome statement on us. So we will have a series of 4 sessions of learning and listening to see what kind of statement our congregation could agree upon. You will want to be there. You can come between services on Sunday, on Tuesday morning at 9 am or Wednesday night at 5:30pm, all in the Matthias Room. Those 3 sessions each week will each be very similar. We promise your opinions will be honored at these meetings.
