Rev. Lisa Offers Class About Understanding the Bible

This class, which focuses on the New Testament, is designed to help empower skeptics, seekers, nonbelievers, religious liberals and progressives reclaim the Bible from literalists. Rev. Lisa Romantum Schwartz brings curiosity, respect, and even some reverence to this overview of the gospels (including some apocrypha) and some of the letters of Paul. FREE but please register (non-members will be charged for child care, if needed).

Samaritan Ministries Computer Lab

The Samaritan Ministries shelter hosts a computer lab for use by the community. They have 5 PCs used for responding to email, applying for jobs and searching the web. They need volunteers to staff the computer lab answering basic questions (training provided) and opening/closing the lab. They're currently only able to open the lab a few nights a week due to limited volunteers. Several folks from the Fellowship have been volunteering recently and found it to be a very rewarding experience without a significant commitment. Sign up with this link or contact Don Kautz with questions.
