Scripture Circle with Rabbi Noah

Sunday, January 29, 12PM-2:30PM. Lunch is provided

“A scripture study is just like a classroom, but instead of coming into the classroom with questions and getting told answers, students come in with questions, search through the text for meaning, and come out with better, more meaningful questions.”

— Josiah Stoll, high school student

We welcome you to join us Sunday, January 29th as Rabbi Noah guides us in a scripture circle study from noon to 2:30PM in the Parlor. If you’ve never been to a study with Noah before, you are in for a delightful surprise. Using lots of questions and a deep understanding of the original Hebrew text, Noah helps scripture passages come alive in completely new ways. Junior High and High School students are welcome. (No childcare provided) Email Holly with questions.

The Daily Practice

The Daily Practice is a devotional tool from Platt Park Church for developing the habit of daily time with God.

Learning to love God takes practice. Just like exercising a muscle, our hearts are trained to love from the bottom up, through the formation of our habits and practices. Discipleship is about curating our hearts to love God and the things that God loves. Forces of our culture train us to love things other than God all the time, but spiritual practices help us to be attentive and intentional about what my heart really loves and desires. Following Jesus is more a matter of hungering and thirsting than of knowing and believing and it is our habit forming practices that form our desires over time. May this daily practice tune your heart to sing His praise.

Click HERE to listen on the web, or find us wherever podcasts are available by searching for “Platt Park Church” or “Daily Practice: Time with God”.

You can also listen from the Platt Park Church App!

Apple Tree Clothes Closet

The APPLE TREE CLOSET is open for shopping! Beautiful, upscale women’s clothing, shoes, and accessories are regularly donated to us by Common Threads on South Pearl and you can purchase them for a fraction of their original price.

Students and those with low income can even shop for free! The proceeds from this ministry benefit our Benevolence/Blessing Fund. Come check it out on the lower level!

(Due to space limitations we are no longer accepting donated items from the congregation).

Blessing Team

Did you know that our church has a “Blessing Team?’” This is a group of dedicated individuals who are available to help meet the needs of people in our faith community. Our role is to support and encourage through a variety of means such as providing meals, financial assistance, visitation, and prayer.

Do you know of someone in need? Please let us know.
