Maranatha Newsletter – Feb 16


Rev. Susanna Weslie Southard began part 3 of the Apocryphal Narratives that she has been sharing with us these past few years. She is teaching on the book of Judith, a fictional story of a widow who becomes a savior for Israel. She will continue with her lesson next Sunday so make plans to be here.


Welcome to repeat visitors Tom & Sue Bennett and to Deborah Robertson. Our speaker, Susanna, also brought a visitor to class. Tom & Sue have been here at least three times, so we now consider them members. Be sure to meet and welcome them the next chance you get.
