"MOSES" ADULT BIBLE STUDY

Book cover for Moses The Reluctant ProphetStarting the week of October 1st, we will begin a six-week study based on Reverend Adam Hamilton's book and DVD "Moses, the Reluctant Prophet." Each week, in a small-group setting, we will explore the sites of Moses' life from the Nile River to the Red Sea, from Mt. Sinai to the wilderness. Using historical information, archaeological data, and biblical text, Rev. Hamilton guides us in the footsteps of the reluctant prophet who blazed a trail of truth. Participants will receive a book. Each week, we will watch a video and discuss questions from the book and video. We will consider what Moses' and the Israelites' journey reveals about God, ourselves and about God's will for our lives. The study sessions are approximately 90 minutes long and are held in the youth lounge starting either on Monday evenings at 6:30 p.m. or Tuesday mornings at 9:30 a.m. Please register for either session with the church office by Tuesday, September 19 so you can receive your book in advance. Please see Kevin Conley (518-253-4907) or Pastor Sundar for more information.

Worship at FUMC for November

ll through the month of November The United Methodist Church marks Native American Heritage Month. "One of the very [early] proponents of an American Indian Day was Dr. Arthur C. Parker, a Seneca Indian, who was the director of the Museum of Arts and Science in Rochester, N.Y. He persuaded the Boy Scouts of America to set aside a day for the "First Americans" ..." From there and following many changes, "In 1990 President George H. W. Bush approved a joint resolution designating November 1990 "National American Indian Heritage Month." Now, for the whole month of November we celebrate Native American Heritage Month.
