ADULT FORUM IN FEBRUARY- Beginning today Fr. Dale will be teaching on St. Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians.  Paul’s arrival at this thriving sea port and trading center in 50 AD gave him a great opportunity to widen the Christian mission he had been engaged in for many years. When Paul reached Corinth (where he stayed for 18 months), he found a pluralist religious culture at the still new Roman Colony. Questions covered in this important New Testament writing include ethics, the Eucharist, the truth of Jesus’ Resurrection, how the sexes should relate to another, a problems in the church of wide diversity, including wealth. New archeological evidence since the 1980s has provided many new insights into the make up of the church at Corinth.

ANNUAL MEETING was held  SUNDAY, JANUARY 29, 2012.     Congratulations to the new Vestry members are, Chuck Evans, Brian Maves, and Michelle Ziegler and to the Synod delegates are Marilynn Belleville, Chuck Evans, Cindy Lynk, Brian Maves and Michelle Ziegler and Dana Meyer is the alternate.
