 Developing your Faith Narrative

- I Love to Tell the Story

 

Wednesday evenings,

thru June 8 (6 weeks)

Time:  7-8:30 pm

 

Pastor Martin Rafanan plans to lead a study group on Developing your Faith Narrative -

I Love to Tell the Story:  developing ways to share your faith in the everyday storytelling

we do in our lives.  How to develop a story about your faith and learn to write it and tell it. 

Identifying and learning about the central themes of our lives.  Bringing constructive

God-language into our everyday speech.  Identifying the gifts God has given us and

writing/telling about how you share those gifts.  Finding your wisdom and sharing it. 

 

Sounds interesting, right?  More details will be available as we get closer.

 

Pocket Change & G&J Dollars

On Sunday, January 1, 2020, we joined the Pittsburgh Lutheran United Ministries (PLUM) as a one-year trial member.  Then, on Sunday, November 22, 2020, we voted to join PLUM as a full member of PLUM. 

 

PLUM will provide our pastoral leadership, but we still need to perform the church 'office' functions, as well as maintain our church building and grounds.  Contact the church office, if you need any pastoral care (wedding, funeral, hospital visits, etc.)
