- Faith and the Public Realm is a special study during Lent that is being encouraged for PCUSA churches in North Carolina. The study will use a curriculum entitled Jesus Christ Incorporated, which has been prepared by Dr. Suzanne Watts Henderson, Associate Professor of Religion of Queens University in Charlotte, NC. The four-part study will focus on how the church as the “body of Christ” incorporates the mission of Jesus in our place and time. Questions that will guide the scripture-based study include: What is the Kingdom of God? What is the good news? What is messianic power-sharing? What is the passion of the Christ? Led by Reggie Weaver
- Celebrating Children and Youth will begin with a focus for parents of children, followed by a repeat visit from Kirk Martin who talks about “creating calm in the home.” The next three weeks will focus on navigating the space between youth and their parents and families. The last 3 sessions will be led by Sam Perkins.
- 24 Hours That Changed the World is a book by noted pastor and author Adam Hamilton. Through DVD reflections on the scripture story, Hamilton guides participants through the last day of Jesus’ life. The study looks especially at the Last Supper, Garden of Gethsemane, Religious officials, Barabbas and Pilate, Jesus’ suffering, Crucifixion, and Victory. Books will be available for purchase or borrow.
- Basic Spanish for Mission Trips (9 week class) - So you're going to Mexico or Honduras this year on a Westminster mission trip and you wish your Spanish language skills were better! This nine-week class is for you. The focus will be on helping participants improve their ability to communicate with their hosts and work partners on these trips. Led by Joann Lommel.
- Prayer Shawl Knitters will continue their special ministry of knitting shawls that are shared with persons who may be experiencing a life crisis or transition. Every shawl is knitted and blessed with the prayers of those participating. New folks are always welcome to join the group in the Redington house. Celeste Wall serves as leader.
- Amani Bead Craft – Each Kenya mission team brings back supplies of beautiful and colorful Amani beads for dedicated members who make jewelry and other items with the beads.
