HAPPINESS GROUP LUNCHEON

Tuesday September 9th, 11:30AM

Fall Harvest Luncheon

Our next Happiness Group luncheon will celebrate the Harvest  of our   Lord and Savior
Jesus Christ 

The Fall Harvest points us to Jesus. We will celebrate the harvest that our Lord Jesus Christ brings into our lives! There will be plenty of entertainment, hymn singing, lots of time for greeting old friends and making new ones – all are welcome to come and enjoy this event. A freewill offering to offset catering costs will be taken after we have enjoyed a delicious lunch.

Please come, and bring a friend! 
Give us a call at 250.769.5685 and let us know how many place settings you need.

 

Our Happiness Group luncheon is a seasonal event focused on bringing together folks in our community and congregation to enjoy good food and classic hymns. While originally founded as a social event for our widows and widowers, it has grown to include anyone who wants to attend. Meals are catered, and there is no charge; although we do encourage a freewill offering to help pay for our caterers. If you would like to know more, please contact the church office (250-769-5685).

Mid-week Bible Study – Revelation

JohnProphetWritesBookRevelationOur Mid-week Bible Study series begins Wednesday September 17th at 11:00 AM.

This year we will be studying the Book of Revelation. We will be using William Hendriksen’s  book entitled “More Than Conquerors: An Interpretation of the Book of Revelation.” Using sound principles of interpretation, More Than Conquerors unfolds the mysteries of the apocalypse gradually, always with the purpose of showing that “we are more than conquerors through Christ who loved us.”  In this commentary, Dr. Hendriksen challenges his readers to face a restless and confusing world with a joyful, confident spirit, secure in the knowledge that God reigns and is coming again soon. 

Bring a bag lunch with you. Around noon, we begin “Table Talk.” We enjoy our bag lunches and discuss what we have learned in the Bible Study, other topics of interest and just enjoy fellowship with one another.  Click here for more information on Bible Study at Grace Lutheran.
