Spring Book Group

“Further Up and Further In”: C.S. Lewis’ Vision of Heaven, is the title of a spring book study that Dave will be leading on Tuesday evenings beginning April 24th.  We will be reading two works of fiction by Lewis: The Last Battle and The Great Divorce.  This five week study will meet in the sanctuary on Tuesday nights at 7:00pm April 24-May 22.  If you have questions about the study or how to acquire the books contact Dave at daver@epcbothell.org.

Welcome Our Youth and Children's Intern - Maya Schlosser-Hall!

What happens when a gifted and enthusiastic senior in high school starts volunteering and making a difference in the lives of our children? And when she's headed off to college in the fall to become a teacher? She is a natural choice to become our first intern! If you haven't met Maya yet, you'll have opportunities to do so in the near future. We'll be introducing her to the congregation in worship on
February 25th and she'll be involved in all things involving our children and youth. Already, she partners with her sister, Hannah, to teach the preschool class once a month and she's begun caring for the little ones in the nursery. We'll be offering youth gatherings starting with movie night at the church on March 2nd. Maya is creative, energetic, outgoing and we've already begun planning and dreaming for this summer's VBS which is scheduled for August 7th-10th. I'm delighted to have Maya to encourage and partner with in the adventure of ministering to children and youth. She is a joy to work with - you should get to know her and see what I mean. With gratitude for this opportunity, Heidi Greider
