Below you will find some key announcements about SoulThirst happenings:
*Every Sunday after worship the Pastors lead a 45 minute Adult Bible Study. The class most often makes its way through a powerful book of the Bible, chapter by chapter. Class begins 15 minutes after worship concludes. Childcare & nursery are available during class. The class is currently making their way through the book of John, and it's the kind of study where you can jump in anytime.
*On Sunday October 21st we’ll host another special potluck Sunday. This time around the them is a “Fall Foods Potluck”, and you’re invited to join us and bring one of your favorite “Fall season” dishes or desserts. We’ll also have a old-school cake walk going on, plus some good ole fun Bingo (with dessert prizes on hand for both games.) The Fall Foods potluck will begin right after worship on that Sunday, so we’ll pause our Adult Bible Study for a week. Make plans to join us for this fun gathering! My mouth is already watering thinking about all the yummy Fall foods and treats!
*Pastor Patrick records 5-10 minute podcast episodes (entertaining stories and helpful insights.) You can find them at pastorpatrickpodcast.com
*We're currently hosting a once a month Bible study on the fascinating Book of Daniel, and it takes place on the 1st Wednesday evening of every month (from 7:00pm-8:15pm.) Childcare is always in place, and the study is for both men and women. The next class gathering is Wednesday October 3rd.
*Jr High Confirmation Training (for 7th & 8th graders) takes place on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month (11:15am-12:30pm), from September through April. This year's confirmation training will kick into gear on Sunday September 23rd. If you have a student you'd like to enroll in this year's confirmation class, please chat with Pastor Patrick.
*On any month that has a 5th Sunday, our Senior High & Jr High Youth are invited to stay after worship for some games, friendship-building, and fascinating spiritual discussions. Vicar James facilitates this youth gathering, and it takes place from 11:15-12:30 (and includes a pizza lunch.) Their next gathering will be on Sunday September 30th. With any questions, email Vicar James at email@example.com
*Starting in the Fall of each year, Pastor Patrick invites anyone interested to journey with him through the Deep Foundations of the Christian Faith. Those who sign up for this journey commit to 4 Saturdays of training, taking place throughout the year, with each Saturday class from 1pm-4pm (it's usually one class in October, one in December, one in February, & one in April.) We just wrapped up this cycle's 4 classes, so be on the lookout for when the course rolls out again sometime next October. We highly recommended this Gospel Training for anyone being led to call SoulThirst their church home, and it will definitely be worth your time!
