Through the week
Vanishing Grace: What Ever Happened to the Good News? Philip Yancey explores the question “Why does the church stir up such negative feelings?”, then offers grace-filled ways of presenting the gospel. Starts Wednesday, January 14; room 30 on the lower level.
Women’s Bible study group will read and discuss An Altar in the World, by Barbara Brown Taylor, the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month, 1–2:30 pm. Please join us – contact Alice Chambers.
Thursday book group begins Jan 29 to discuss The Language of Flowers, by Vanessa Diffenbaugh. This New York Times best-seller is a page-turner and romantic at times. It’s also a shattering look at how growing up in foster care can badly warp responses to life. All are welcome, for this 3-week book discussion or for any future book discussions. Please read through page 100 for this Thursday’s meeting. Meets 1–2:30 pm, in room 118.
Riverside Community Gathering Set the written word down and live the gospel in this faith-based community outreach. Each week we join approximately 40 people to eat, pray and share our lives. Meets Wednesdays, 4:30–5:45 pm, at First Presbyterian Church, 300 N. Washington St., Ypsilanti. Please contact Mike Beckman for more information.
