The South Church

Biscotti & Bible

Biscotti & Bible, Wednesday mornings at 10:00 a.m. Join us each week as we study lectionary texts. The lectionary consists of readings from the Hebrew scriptures, the Psalms, the gospels, and the New Testament letters. Our discussions have already led us to reflect on our current life challenges, contemporary politics, and literature in general with the breadth of our talks continually growing. You will find an interesting group of people blessed with lively minds and warm hearts. During winter months we meet in the Chapel at 10:00 each Wednesday morning. All are welcome to attend!

World Religions

World Religions Class Meets Twice a Month Join us as we explore the religions of the world! As the American religious landscape becomes more and more diverse, it is a good time to learn something about the faith traditions of our neighbors. It might even deepen and enrich your own understanding of God. The Adult Sunday School class meets the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month, at 9 a.m., downstairs in the library. Our primary text is The Idiot’s Guide to World Religions, supplemented by handouts and articles that are provided. Everyone is welcome. No need to attend regularly—just stop in when you can.

Vegetable Garden 2011

A new vegetable garden was planted before the rain fell on Saturday, May 21. Many hands, young and old alike, helped till, weed and plant the new vegetable garden. The produce, when ready, will be donated to the local food pantry for those in need. Come out every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m., weather permitting, until sometime in October, to weed the vegetable garden and later to pick the produce. Everyone is welcome!
