Muffin Club (Bible Study)
This lay-led Bible study group meets every second Sunday at 8:30 a.m. from October to June (and breaks for the summer) over coffee, tea and muffins. Started in 1988, Muffin Club members select passages from the Bible, devotional books or other study resources and lead sessions. In this way, we grow in our walk with God and understand more about His Word as well as our role in the world around his. The Muffin Club supports efforts of local outreach, including purchasing turkeys and providing Christmas dinners for families in need and donating to “Our Daily Bread” publishers.
Contact: Harry Soper or one of our ministers.
Seasonal 2018 Faith Studies
Fall 2018 Faith Study – Every Wednesday, October 3 - 31 7-8 pm in the MacKinnon Chapel - All are welcome!
(* We will be in the Sanctuary on the 10th of October).
Our worship theme in October is gratitude and thus the book we will explore in the Faith Study is Grateful: The Transformative Power of Giving Thanks by Diana Butler Bass. For five Wednesdays in October we will explore why gratitude is missing as a modern spiritual practice, offering practical suggestions for reclaiming it, and illuminating how the shared practice of gratitude can lead to greater connection with God, our world, and our own souls. Grateful is partially an individual, emotional response to our circumstances, but research has shown that what we often miss is how much more it is a communal, actionable response. Bass examines this more unexpected experience of gratitude, and reveals how people and communities can practice it and thrive. If you plan to attend, please let Kevin know by signing up on the bulletin board outside the Ladies Parlour, or email at email@example.com, or call 902-455-0521 ex. 222.
The book is not required, but would you wish a copy, please contact the Office.
