Bible Study Fellowship for Women and Men
Our Koinonia Kafe hosts a Women’s Bible Study Fellowship every Thursday morning at 11 a.m., and the women of this church are invited to attend. The same organization also holds a Men’s Bible Study Fellowship group to which we are invited: at New Beginnings Church, 526 Clay St. (across from the cemetery), Thursday evenings at 6:30.
Five Wednesday Lent Worship Services and Lunch
We are once again hosting a Wednesdays-in-Lent series of worship services and luncheons this year, for the entire Paris community. Worship runs from Noon to 12:30 and lunch is served promptly and quickly, in case you need to return to work or other projects. The first service is this Wednesday, March 13. John Youngblood, New Beginnings Church, will bring the message and Susan Hiddle, flutist, will provide music.
EXPLORING OUR FAITH
Our lively Monday evening discussion group will meet every Monday in March, from 5:15 to 6:30 in the Koinonia Kafe. On most Mondays, there is the option of going out to dinner with the group following the study. Monday, March 11 we begin as our Lent study Max Lucado’s video/print study “He Chose the nails: What God Did to Win Your Heart.” “Max Lucado invites you to examine the cross, contemplate its purpose, and celebrate its significance. Go ahead and linger on the hill of Calvary and see just how much God did to win your heart.”
