THIS SUNDAY'S BULLETIN IN PDF FORMAT
(It includes our order of service, prayers and song lyrics)
We have begun our fall teaching series “Filled Up, Poured Out.”
Over the next few weeks into early October, we will be taking a “deep dive” into Romans 12.
Listed below are a number of different ways you can take part, getting “filled up”
through daily devotions and small groups.
“Pop-up” Small Groups start September 28
- A group for healthcare workers – 8:15 pm on Thursdays, led by Ben Fergus (Email him to sign up at firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Exploring Christian mindfulness and meditation – 7 pm on Fridays, led by Eugenia Jeong and Evan Fojtik (Email them to sign up at email@example.com
- Discussion of a short book called “Liturgy of the Ordinary,” – 7:30 pm on Mondays – led by Pastor Amanda Golbek and Hannah McConnell. We will have an intro discussion on 9/28, then start the book on 10/5 (Email Hannah at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for this group).
Interactive Devotional Email Series
Join as an integral member of the whole church body in taking part in our “Filled Up Poured Out” Devotional series. Each week we will study the passage used for the sermon series during the previous Sunday teaching. Each weekday you will receive an email to help you reflect on that week’s scripture through a different lens, using a variety of mediums. There will be offerings for children as well. May the Lord use this to fill us up that we may be poured out in love and service for God’s glory. Sign up HERE.

Adult Education class on Reading While Black begins this Sunday after our service!
This week, following our 10 a.m. online Sunday morning worship service, FPCE will be offering a new Adult Education series led by Rev. Henry Coates, associate pastor. Over the course of the next 7-8 weeks, we will look at the ideas discussed in the book Reading While Black: African American Biblical Interpretation as an Exercise in Hope. The book is written by Esau McCaulley (PhD, St. Andrews), an assistant professor of New Testament at Wheaton College, a priest in the Anglican Church in North America, and a contributing opinion writer for The New York Times. The book is available for purchase on Amazon.
This Sunday, Pastor Henry will be introducing the series. He recommends the following preparation:
Read this New York Times article: What the Bible has to Say About Black Anger.
Watch this YouTube video: An interview with Esau McCaulley.
We are looking forward to having as many folks as possible take part in this new class beginning THIS SUNDAY on Zoom after the service.
The Zoom link for this class will be made available at the end of the service on the FPCE website.
