Men’s Choir for Men’s Sunday

Calling ALL MEN of the church! We will be celebrating Men’s Sunday on June 3. It is our tradition that the men of the church sing special music that day. This year’s song will be “I will call upon the Lord”. Please join Marilyn at the piano immediately following the worship service today for a brief practice. There will be plenty of time afterward for fellowship, coffee, and other choir rehearsals.


Wednesday Bible Study on the Beatitudes

The Wednesday evening study on the Beatitudes continues throughout May. The topic of the study is the Beatitudes from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount from Matthew 5. Pastor Matthew is leading the study. The group will meet on Wednesday evenings on May 2, 16, 23, 30. There will be no Wednesday evening study on May 9 due to the Ascension holiday. The study begins at 18:30 with a light supper. Email the church office for info.

Special Study on Old Testament

The ESUMC special study entitled “An Introduction to the Old Testament” continues in May and June. Pastor Martin Schulzer teaches the study. Two more sessions remain which will cover the topics of Old Testament history and archaeology and ancient Near Eastern context. The next sessions are May 18 and June 1 from 18:00-21:00. The Scherer family hosts the study at their home at Reihergraben 18, A-3400 Klosterneuburg. A light meal will be served before the study session.
