We thank God for what He has done in our families and hope in Him for what remains amiss.
Funding Our Mission: We ended up receiving $76,335 so we achieved both the Praise and Rejoice levels! Thank you to all who participated.
Adult Ed: A History of Biblical Interpretation: From the Early Church to the Reformation: This class broadly surveys the history of biblical interpretation from the early church to the Reformation, focusing on key figures and their methods of interpreting the Bible. This class will meet in the Library on Sunday at 9:30 a.m. and is led by Alyssa Evans.
The Koinonia Team: The Koinonia Team is putting together a series of events to promote discussion of important issues related to race and community within the body of Christ and the larger Princeton community. We viewed the movie, Black Panther, and then talked about the theme of that movie. Here are the 3 remaining events this summer.
· Saturday, July 21 at 10 a.m.: Book Discussion of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
Make sure you read the book and come ready to discuss this fascinating true story that reveals the hidden prejudices and biases in the medical and scientific community.
· Saturday, July 28 at 6 p.m.: Movie and Discussion of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
For those of you who don’t have time to read the book, you can come to the movie showing followed by discussion.
· Saturday, August 25th at 10 a.m.: Book Discussion of Divided by Faith by Christian Smith and Michael O. Emerson
Our final event of the summer focuses on a sociological study of how the church in North America has remained largely segregated. This is an important book for us to wrestle with. God has already made Stone Hill a diverse congregation. We want to see our fellowship grow in unity even as we express the beauty of the diversity in our midst.
Café Volunteers: We all enjoy the wonderful coffee, tea, bagels and fellowship time in the atrium on Sunday mornings! We are looking for help this summer in the cafe in order to keep the bagels coming. Please consider joining our team. Many hands make light work!
