Lenten Studies...

Pastor Terry will be leading a study of Parker Palmer’s book, Let Your Life Speak: Listening for the Voice of Vocation, which will relate to the worship series –“Listen” - that begins on Ash Wednesday. The group will meet on Tuesdays in the Bride’s Room from 1:30-2:30, beginning on Feb. 13. If 3 or more people prefer an evening meeting and are willing to commit to the 6 weekly gatherings, a 2nd session will meet on Tuesday evenings at a mutually agreed upon time.

Barbara del Bosque will be leading a study on Adam Hamilton's book Seeing Gray in a World of Black. This class will be starting the week of February 18th.  There will be two classes offered each week:  One on Sunday morning at 9:15 a.m., and the same class will again be offered at 1:30 p.m. on Monday afternoons.  You are free to switch between the two classes to accommodate your schedule.

New Hearing Device Installed

A hearing loop is a wire that circles a room and is connected to the sound system. The loop transmits the sound electromagnetically. The electromagnetic signal is then picked up by the telecoil in the hearing aid or cochlear implant.

To use a hearing loop, you flip on the t-switch on the hearing aid or cochlear implant to activate the telecoil. Usually, no additional receiver or equipment is needed. If your hearing aid doesn’t have a telecoil, you will need a headset plugged into a loop receiver to achieve the same effect. This will be a great benefit to our worshippers needing hearing assistance.
