Monday, April 17: It’s time to start reading our next book, Aquinas for Armchair Theologians by Timothy M. Renick. This book has been described as clear, concise and witty with an accessible text and fun illustrations. Learn all about this important early Christian thinker and his views on a wide variety of subjects from God and angels to sex, war and politics!
Approximately three times a year on Sunday afternoons immediately after the 11:00 AM service, we have a guest or staff facilitator who leads us in discussions. Light lunch is included.
Sing to the Lord a New Song: A Look at the New Presbyterian Hymnal
Sunday, April 30
12:15 PM in Haverkamp Room
Listen and sing as Westminster members Pete Vanden Bosch and Molly Roden introduce us to the new Presbyterian Hymnal. Pete will present background on Presbyterian hymnals through the history of the church, and, in particular, on the development of the denomination’s newest hymnal, “Glory to God.” Molly will then lead us in singing some of the hymns that have been added to this latest collection to help us become familiar with some new tunes and new words, all to the Glory of God! A light lunch will be provided.
Annual Fall Retreat
Members of Flying Solo enjoy a time to come together and reflect on various themes or topics. During the weekend, we enjoy some relaxed time for extended conversations and fellowship with friends, delicious food, lively games, quiet prayer, group worship, joyful singing, snapping photos, reading, walking, and exploring.
Our 2017 Retreat will be October 6-8 at Hallowood Retreat Center in Comus, MD, led by our very own Rev. Patrick Hunnicutt!
