“Thank You” to all who helped (food, choreography, set-up, clean-up and support) with our Ethnic Dinner and Dancing on Friday.  We had a great time…maybe an annual event…first Friday of the New Year?  We raised the amount of one “scholarship” for a participant in the IOCC Gulf Coast Project.

We’re hoping to hold a New Testament Survey (Biblical Theology of the New Testament) on Mondays, beginning later this month.  This is one of a course of 5 semesters of training that offers the academic component of the overall DTP — a ministerial training program — sponsored by the OCA.  If you have any interest in deepening your experience with the New Testament (especially vis a vis patristic interpretation and liturgical calendar), why not consider the classes?
