Adult Study Group – 9 am, Church House Parlor
Charles King will be leading a Lenten study titled, Understanding Salvation: What Does It Mean To Be Saved? It will meet for five weeks starting March 10.
Understanding Salvation: What Does It Mean To Be Saved?
Salvation is a central aspect of Christian experience and thought and a prominent theme in both the Old and New Testaments. Yet, it may be surprising to many how varied the depictions and understandings of salvation are in the Bible and have been throughout the history of Christianity. Christians have argued over different views about the meaning, nature, and sources of salvation since the early church. In this series of discussions, we will examine the biblical sources for salvation and related theological concepts and explore how these ideas have varied and changed during Church history. Our goal will be on striving to understand and appreciate the reasons for differing points of view on salvation both historically and currently and to clarify our own perspectives.

Walk and Talk Group – Betty Hahn’s home (144 Village Drive, Basking Ridge) from 8:30 to 10:30 am.
The Walk & Talk Group meets at 8:30am on alternate Tuesdays at the home of Betty Hahn. The group begins with a short walk and then proceeds to coffee and discussion. Lunch meetings are occasionally held at a nearby restaurant to accommodate member’s schedules. The group is currently working with Hugh Prather’s book Notes on How to Live in the World… and Still Be Happy. The book helps us to examine our own lives so that we can learn to change the attitudes and actions that hold us back from experiencing happiness. It contains exercises throughout to help us along the way. Contact Betty Hahn for more information: 908-221-9294.
