Holistic Healing Book Study
Monday, October 23; 7:00 pm in the Church Library
Have you or a loved one ever been given a seemingly incurable diagnosis like: autism, ADHD, MS, interstitial cystitis, cancer, Alzheimer’s, colitis, IBS, enlarged heart, or others only to find years later that people were indeed recovering from it? That has happened to me on a number of occasions as I, first, tried to heal my children and then later, when I tried to heal myself. Unfortunately, I found that these healing methods were not easy to find and, most often, I learned of them as the result of talking to the right person at the right time. In this Book Study, we will discuss one important book each month starting with “The Prime: Prepare and Repair Your Body for Spontaneous Weight Loss” by Kulreet Chaudhary, MD. on Monday, Oct. 23 at 7 pm in the Library. (Read the reader reviews on Amazon.)—Sally Averkamp

Thursday, October 9 at Noon
The pastoral support committee is hosting two congregational forums concerning the preaching at Lake Edge over the past three years, and its relationship to our congregational Vision Statement. The forums will be held Thursday, October 12, from 6:00-6:45 pm; and Thursday, October 19, from 12 noon-12:45 pm in the sanctuary. All congregational members are welcome to attend. There will be three guided questions that will help to frame the discussions. The questions are available for those who prefer or need to provide written opinions. The questions can also be found on our website and can be responded to on line, click here. The impetus for these forums is connected to Pr. Stephen’s Doctor of Ministry work. However, it is also a wonderful opportunity for you to be heard concerning the preached word at Lake Edge. Please consider being a part of this effort. A big “thank you” from Pr. Stephen to all who are able to participate.
