Breads of the World

September means cooler weather and the baking season is approaching! Sunday, October 3 is WORLD COMMUNION SUNDAY at which time we usually serve a variety of international/ethnic bread for Communion. However, since we are not yet serving communion in the traditional way, the Worship and Sacraments Committee plans to have large baskets of loaves of bread to be given to each family unit at the end of worship to be enjoyed at home.

We are inviting members to contribute a loaf or half-loaf of ethnic or favorite store-bought bread to be collected in the baskets. If you wish to contribute contact Joan Berglund, 402-440 -5478, or Arta Smith, 402-613-6931 as we need to keep a count. Bread can be brought to the church on World Communion Sunday morning before worship and placed in the baskets.
Thank you.
The Worship and Sacraments Committee

Healing Moral Injury, Support Conversations

Healing Moral Injury Support Conversations –
October 7, 7:00 – 9:00 pm

Moral injury is a wound that comes from actions that we have witnessed, perpetrated, participated in, or been harmed by, that violate our moral beliefs that are at the heart of who we are. Often they involve such things as betrayal, harm that we or others have done, or even harm that we have been powerless to prevent. Join us on Oct. 7th at 7:00 pm.

Bible 101

Bible 101
September 19, 9:00 am – October 31 | Hebrews 211

What is the Bible? Sounds like an obvious question with an obvious answer, but is it? This seven-session/week Sunday morning class will meet from 9:00 – 9:45 am, and is designed to help adult participants learn/refresh the basics of what the
Bible is and what the Bible is about.

Job Opportunity - Finance Administrator

Cheryl Rennick joined us for what was intended to be a short time, and that short time has turned into several years.  She is ready to retire, so that means we are looking for a new Finance Administrator.

The Finance Administrator is responsible for the overall financial life of the church and Foundation in terms of record-keeping, accounting, payables, payroll, reporting, and working directly with other staff responsible for receiving and recording deposits.  This is a part time job, 20 hours per week, with a flexible schedule.

If you know of anyone who might be interested, please direct them to more info on our website:

“Short Stories by Jesus” Book Discussion Group

September 22, 6:00 pm – November 24 |
The Eatery Restaurant

The book Short Stories by Jesus by Amy-Jill Levine invites us to look at the parables of Jesus not through our modern Christian lens, but through the Jewish lens in which the parables were originally told. Each week, the group will gather together to discuss the week’s chapter/parable and dive into a discussion about what it has to teach us anew. Join us on Wednesday nights from 6:00-8:00 pm at The Eatery restaurant on South 48th Street between Normal and Van Dorn.
