The Grocery Cart – Family Scholar House is the recipient of donations to the Grocery Cart in January. The items most needed are: disposable diapers, baby wipes, paper towels, toilet paper, kitchen trash bags, laundry detergent and cleaning supplies. Family Scholar House exists to end the cycle of poverty and transform our community by empowering families and youth to succeed in education and achieve life-long self-sufficiency. A new facility will be opening soon in Southwest Louisville that will house 32 families and 32 young adults just out of foster care who don’t have children.
HB University Winter Term –Two options:
- Worship: The Heart of the Church’s Life (Session Room). Using the newly revised Presbyterian Directory for Worship, Paul Huh, Tim Cargal and Bill Williamson will teach a six-week course on worship–its meaning and purpose, and why things occur in worship in a particular order. We’ll also consider the sacraments of baptism and the Lord’s Supper, and also look at special services such as funerals and weddings. Come find out why worship is at the center of the life of the church. January 7 – Feb 11.
- Mariners Class (Room 216). “Jonah” of the Old Testament and “Tobit” of the Old Testament Apocrypha have several things in common. Both are stories or fables; both concern the city of Nineveh; both send a man on a mission and both include a big fish. But both also show how God works out God’s purposes whether for a whole city or for a family. Join the Mariners Class: January 7 – Feb 11 to learn what these two books have to say about God and humans.
