Manna Returns January 13

Posted on Saturday, January 9, 2010 at 10:38 AM

Our weekly Wednesday evening intergenerational program resumes January 13th after a Christmas break.  Manna is a great time for fellowship and relationship-building, with nourishment from food and the Word.  Invite your friends, family, and neighbours.

Supper is at 5:30 in the basement, followed by activities for all ages and interests.  Choose from:

  • Adult Catechesis What is this?
  • Adult Bible study led by Pastor Roger Winger (lower level Luther Room);
  • Children's program (Thomas Room);
  • Crafts (lower level Fellowship Hall);
  • Learn to Quilt (2nd-floor quilting room);
  • Sports (Gym).

Confirmation students (grades 5 - 8) also have catechesis each Wednesday at 6:15 in the Nursery Class Room.

New this term:  Have you ever avoided talking to someone because you've forgotten their name -- and feel too embarrassed to ask?  You're not alone!  Starting January 13th we'll all be wearing name tags at Manna.  So throw off your inhibitions and eat dinner with someone new this week.
