  Monday Night Bible Study 

        6:30 p.m.

"The Jesus I Never Knew"

        This fall we invite you to join us on a journey that will challenge and change you. A journey that will expand - and very likely - redefine your understanding of the person, teachings, and life of Jesus Christ. One that will lead you beyond familiar images of Christ to discover Jesus as you have never known him: radical, compelling, compassionate, bold, incisive, and ultimately satisfying. Using Philip Yancey’s best selling book, The Jesus I Never Knew, we will peel away popular stereotypes to present a brilliant and fascinating portrait of Christ.  Copies of the book are aavailable in the church office.  All are welcome!

Nursery - Posted On: Thursday, August 28, 2014

             At one time, Old Whalers’ provided nursery care on Sunday mornings during the worship service. For many years, the nursery was staffed by volunteers and then by paid employees. This provided an opportunity for parents of infants and very young children to worship while their children were well cared for. Three years ago, due to financial challenges, the Session had to eliminate the paid nursery worker position. We made several attempts to staff the nursery with adult volunteers but had very limited success. In an effort to be a welcoming church for all ages, the Session wishes to explore the possibility of providing nursery care again on Sunday mornings. If any of our members would like to volunteer for a week or two each month, please speak to Rev. Mark Phillips. Two people are needed - one of whom is a responsible adult.
