Jump Start Bible Study – Tuesdays at 4 pm

Jump Start resumes on Tuesday, September 12 at 4 pm in the chapel area or board room.

All are welcome for fellowship, study and discussion of the scriptures from the lectionary for the following Sunday. The lectionary is a pre-selected collection of scriptural readings from the Bible used for worship, study and/or theological discussions. Many Christian churches use the Revised Common Lectionary which follows the liturgical year in a 3-year cycle and provides scriptural recommendations that complement the current season of the liturgical year.

The Bible study group, which meets weekly, begins with a brown bag dinner and fellowship from 4:00 to 4:30 and Bible study from 4:30 to 5:30.

If you have any questions, please contact John Durbin.

Alfred Hitchock’s “Notorious” – Friday, April 21, 9:30 am

Jack Evans and the Board of Lifelong Learning Present:
Filmmakers of the 20th Century

Showing next: Alfred Hitchock’s Notorious
Friday, April 21, 9:30 am

Every third Friday of the month throughout the summer, our good friend Jack Evans will treat us to a film presentation in this series.

With the coming of the French New Wave in the late 1950s and into the 1960s, a new emphasis was placed on the concept of the director as the auteur or author of each film he or she produced. The theory formulated was that certain filmmakers, through style and vision, left a highly individualized signature on each movie they made. The French saw in the work of specific directors this most important aspect of film art. Singled out for praise were several directors, including Charlie Chaplin, Alfred Hitchcock, and John Ford.

Over the course of this year, we will look at the work of a variety of filmmakers who have left their mark on the art and history of film in the past century. City Lights, a silent film made by Charlie Chaplin in 1931, was our first showing in March. The film was a real hit with our members and guests!

Join us on Friday, April 21st at 9:30 a.m. for Alfred Hitchcock’s Notorious. Great films and great fellowship!

Welcome, new members!

Our next class of new members will be received on Sunday, April 30th, with an orientation session and dinner on Wednesday, April 19th, at 3:30 p.m. If you have been considering membership or associate membership, we would love to include you!
