Adult Forum beginning this Sunday at 8:45 am. (Adult Chris. Ed.)

Short-Term Adult Discussion Forums on Sunday Morning

Due to the fact that there is not currently an eighth grade confirmation class, I have not been teaching on Sunday morning. I have had some inquiries about adult Christian education on Sunday morning, which we characteristically have not done on Sunday morning. However, during the 8:45 – 9:45 a.m. time frame of our current Sunday morning schedule, and due to the fact that there isn’t much coffee and fellowship going on at that time, I thought I might begin a time of adult forum and discussion before worship at 10:00 a.m. The first topic I am calling “Christianity and Culture,” which will explore the relationship of the Christian faith to American culture, and the reasons for the declining trends in worship participation, and Christian education we have observed in our own congregation over the past ten years, and in the community at large for the last several decades. People will be encouraged to offer their own opinions on the subject, and I will share what I know and have observed during the time I have been in ministry. This may lead us to some conclusions about what we can do as we are faced with this challenge. Because however much we might wish for it, things are not going to go back to whatever we may consider the “good ‘ol days” to be.

The first Adult Forum will meet Sunday, March 26, at 8:45 a.m. in the parlor. Hope to see you there.

Please support our youth – 30 hour famine coming up!

Support St. Paul’s Youth Group as we go without food for 30 hours next weekend! We don’t think it’s right that nearly 7,000 kids are dying every day because of hunger — so we’re doing something about it through World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine!

How the Famine works:
1. The Youth LEARN the truth about global hunger and discover what God wants us all to do about it.
2. We RAISE FUNDS to fight hunger (that’s where YOU come in).
3. We grow closer to God and each other as we FAST FOR 30 HOURS.
4. LIVES ARE CHANGED because of the money we’ve raised!

This is your chance to encourage St. Paul’s Youth in their walk with God and their ability to make a difference in the world. It’s also your opportunity to respond to God’s heart for the poor. Plus, your tax-deductible donation goes a long way.
Please help us reach our goal of $3500.

For online donations:
Click on this link: St. Paul’s Torrington team
Here you can make either a donation to the team or through one of the youth on the team:
• Youth member donation: Click “Roster”, locate & click the team member you want to donate through and make your donation on their page
• Team donation: Click the “Support Us” box and make your donation on the team

THANK YOU for supporting us in our efforts to eradicate world hunger!
