DO NOT MISS our Pentecost Pot Luck Dinner on June 4. Do you have a favorite family recipe? IT CAN BE ANYTHING FROM ANYWHERE! Maybe it's German streusel or pierogis. Maybe it's macaroni and cheese. Maybe it's meatloaf. Just make the dish and join us Sunday, June 4, for our Pentecost Pot Luck immediately following the late services. Sign up at the Gathering Space reception desk or online to bring your choice of an "international cuisine" dish from Germany, Italy, India, Greece, or FROM GOOD OLD CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA! We'll also be recognizing and celebrating our graduating Sunday School students and their teachers.

Imagine how a seasoned journalist might approach the story of Jesus, tracking down information to learn all about the one we call Christ! Lee Strobel, journalist with The Chicago Tribune, did just that. Then he published The Case for Christ: A Journalist's Personal Investigation of the Evidence for Jesus. Join us for an adult class led by Linda Horner. You'll see how Strobel cross-examined experts in biblical studies and came to his own conclusions about history's most compelling, life-changing figure. Classes will be held at 9:30 am in room 232-234 on the following Sundays: May 28, June 4 and 11. Participants should purchase their own copy of the book at Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Christian Book Distributors, or other book retail stores.
