Fall Bible Study

UPCOMING FALL FAITH FORMATION (BIBLE STUDY) PROGRAM

Are you looking for an anchor to hold you steady through the storms of life? Want the secret to find joy in the midst of trials? Interested in learning to recognize the source of discord and the way to peace? James, one of the most practical books of the Bible, is a collection of teachings on issues faced by ordinary Christians in everyday life.

This fall we will be offering an eleven week study program on the Letter of James. James is one of the most practical books of the Bible. Its teachings speak loudly to those who feel torn between the competing demands of this world and their faith. This study offers
“pearls for wise living” by applying the wisdom of James to our current day. For anyone who has struggled to live a truly Christian life, James offers a wealth of practical solutions for handling and even sanctifying everyday circumstances.

Stay tuned for more information regarding dates and registration information to be provided later in the summer.

ELF The Musical

The Knights of Columbus Assembly 3022 would like to invite you to take advantage of choosing the best seats for the Show Palace Dinner Theater production of “Elf The Musical” on Sunday, December 15 at noon.

Join us for the hilarious tale of Buddy the Elf, a young orphan who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole.  Buddy is raised unaware that he is actually a human until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth.  With Sant’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity.  Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list and his step-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas!

Tickets are $55 per person for the show and buffet and require just a $10 nonrefundable deposit now with the balance payment due by November 7, or you can pay in full now if you prefer.  This price also includes your non-alcoholic beverages, upgraded dessert, and tip.  For tickets, please call Leo Gasiorowski 352.835.7227.
