ADULT FORMATION CLASS: Sunday mornings, 9:30am, September 24-November 19. Led by Jaqueline Whalen in McCray Hall. Heads up for everyone! New class starting in September. I am asking for a little help. As part of the completion of my degree, a Masters in Theological Studies, I am teaching a class this Fall. We can gather on September 17 and I will show you what I have planned. The class will begin September 24 at 9:30. I am looking for willing participants!!!! Please join me in exploring "A recipe for Discipleship found in the Parables." I would love to share some of what I have learned through my studies at Regent University. I used to be afraid to tackle any parable. They all seemed confusing and some of them just made no sense to me. However, I have found some investigative tools that are truly helpful as you read through the Scriptures and it has made my study of Scripture so much more rewarding. Let's explore together what the parables have to teach us about our personal path of discipleship. I am looking forward to a lively class with lots of great discussion!

CHRISTIANITY EXPLORED: What’s the best news you have ever heard? We all get one life to live and deep down we’re all asking the same question – what’s it all about? Christianity Explored gives you time and space to think through who Jesus is and why it matters. Wednesday evenings from 7-9pm, starting September 20, at Trillium Gathering Building, 18915 Lincoln Rd., Purcellville. Questions? Contact Dell Nunaley or visit www.stpetes.net .

PIZZA WITH THE PASTOR—St. Peter’s 101: Do you have questions about living as a Christian or the distinctive way we do it here at St. Peter’s? We will offer our “Path In” to the life of St Peter’s on Sunday afternoons from 12:30-2pm in McCray Hall. For five weeks we will help you explore what we are about here at St Peter’s and how we live and work together as a congregation. (September 24, Oct. 1, 8, 15, 22, 29) Join us!
