Join us for worship Sunday at 10:00 a.m. in person and live-streamed!
Christian Book Club.
The Christian Book Club will read Born Again by Chuck Colson and will meet Friday, Sept. 24, online at 6:30pm (date tentative at this writing). In 1974 Charles W. Colson, former special counsel to President Richard Nixon, pleaded guilty to Watergate-related offenses and, after a tumultuous investigation, served seven months in prison. In his search for meaning and purpose in the face of the Watergate scandal, Colson penned Born Again.In 1976 Colson founded Prison Fellowship, which has since become the world’s largest outreach to prisoners, ex-prisoners, and their families. In 1991 he launched BreakPoint, a daily radio feature bringing Christian thinking to bear on current issues, which aired on more than 1,000 stations nationwide. He passed away in 2012. From a review on Christianbook.com: “What an amazing journey from being on the wrong side of Watergate to being fully surrendered to God and founding Prison Fellowship ministries, along with his wife, which is now worldwide. I believe Colson’s trailblazing efforts have made it possible for many of God’s servants to reach many inmates for Christ. I loaned this book to a friend on Sunday. By Wednesday he had finished it and asked permission to pass it on to his granddaughter. It is truly a work that every Christian should read, especially if you lived through the Watergate years, as I did.”
Friendly Service is Back!
The Friendly Service will meet Monday, Sept. 13, from 9am to noon in Fellowship Hall. Masks and social distancing will be required.
