BrainStorming with Bo This Sunday we begin a four-week series on the Enneagram. The Enneagram is a personality system that aims to reveal how emotions drive our lives and how we engage with others in an effort to get what we want and need. The Enneagram defines nine personality types, each with its own set of strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities for personal growth. Join us at 9:15 am for this fascinating study.
ImBible Study Jesus moves to Wednesday nights at 7:00! We resume this Wednesday at 7:00 pm in the Fireside Room. We will pick up where the Sunday morning series ended, with the 9th chapter of Luke.
Second Sunday Spiritual Practices On Sunday, Jan 12, we’ll be walking the indoor labyrinth. If you’ve never done a labyrinth walk, John Espy will be on hand to give you tips on how best to experience this ancient practice. Join us at 6:00 pm in the sanctuary.
Pub Chat This month’s topic is about the animosity between generations and how it affects the church. Find links to the reading materials on our website. Join us on Tuesday, Jan 21, at 6:00 pm at The Lodge at Cascade Brewing, 7424 SW Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy.
