October 27:  Planning a Good Funeral, Chris Myers
Pastor Chris will lead a discussion about planning a good funeral, including a focus on: the distinguishing between a funeral, memorial service, and celebration of life; writing an obituary; recognizing grief and how to help those who will mourn; and leaving a legacy.

November 3:  The Story of Jonah, Stacy Myers
Jonah is one of three smaller literary works in the Old Testament that is an excellent example of ancient Hebrew storytelling. Come to explore this unusual prophetic book.
