Sunday, September 24
Rev. Dr. Michelle Morris
Scripture: Mark 5:21-43; James 1:27
While the First Amendment talks about the freedom of citizens to petition their government, we will look at how people are being restricted from seeking medical care for themselves and their children, and how the curtailing of these rights is causing greater want and fear in our society.

Families with children grades Kindergarten - 4th will meet at Creekside Park at 4 p.m. on Sunday, September 24th. This is a great opportunity to meet new church families or get together with some families you haven't seen in a while. Ms. Allison will have a snack for the kids as well.
**The splash pad at this park might also be open. I will update everyone on Family Ministry Facebook in case your kids want to wear their swimsuits.
Human Sexuality and the Bible
For three Sundays (September 10, 17, 24) Pastor Michelle will be addressing questions around Human Sexuality and the Bible, particularly focused on the texts concerning LGBTQIA+ people. It is an open space for anyone to learn, and we will meet in Hines Hall at 10 a.m. You are simply asked to come with an open mind and an open heart with a goal of loving and understanding each other better.
Beer & Hymns (& Horns)
RAISE YOUR BRASS. We're adding a horn section! Join us at Tontitown Winery, Sunday September 24 from 5-7pm, to sing and dance along, raise your glass, and support our September charity, Clothed with Compassion.
Clothed with Compassion works with local school districts to provide new clothing for students in need and for refugees. You may sponsor a child or refugee at any time of the year, however, there is especially a need for at the start of the school year and during the holidays.
