Science and Religion Ministry

The S & R Ministry has begun a new lecture series.  It is Plato's Republic as interpreted by and taught by David Roochnik Associate Professor of Philosophy at Boston University.  

     The series consists of 24 30 minute lectures on DVDs from the Teaching Company's The Great Courses.  We have audited Lecture 1: Plato's Life and Times and all agree, Prof. Roochnik is a dynamic presenter of what will likely prove to be a very interesting and timely learning experience.  

     This is a good opportunity to join us.

meeting and short spiritual program. Women are asked to bring donations for
the Easter basket raffle. Two baskets will be assembled, drawing to take place

The Joyful B’s will hold a special craft session at the church on Saturday, April

Thanks to our loyal volunteers the church is cleaned weekly and the walks
