Sowing Tears, Reaping Joy: the Bible & Brahms' Requiem
Honesty and Hope Co-Mingled
On Sunday, November 4, the Chancel Choir will present Brahms’ Requiem as part of our All Saints’ Day observances. To prepare, a seven-class adult education series will be offered, providing an in-depth study of the Biblical foundations of the Requiem. You are invited to attend the class with two options:
- Monday class begins October 1, 10:30 a.m. – noon, in the Vance Room. Kathy Wirstrom is the leader.
- Wednesday class meets September 19 – October 31, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m, in the Curtis Room. Ed Koster is the leader. A simple supper will be featured.
Sign up in the Church Office. A Kerygma resource book ($16) is available in the Church Office. Contact Rev. Sanderford for more information at jsanderford@firstpresbyterian.
Sunday Morning Classes
This summer join us for "ConnectEd Conversations" starting Sunday, June 18 at 10:45a.m. in the French Room/Library. Along with the day's scripture readings, our summer reads around justice, mercy, and humility will be the foundation for this time of casual conversation and reflection. All are welcome!
