Sunday School Adult Forum
Real People Changing the World!
Around Christmas time every year at Shell Ridge we offer opportunities for alternative gift buying through Heifer International, an organization dedicated to ending hunger and caring for the earth. In this week's Adult Forum, we have the opportunity to find out more about Heifer International, especially their microenterprise program of empowering entrepreneurship. In particular, we will be focusing on social entrepreneurs, "real people changing the world." So even if you know all about Heifer International, this will be something new and amazing to learn about!
Discussion Leader: Sandy Mitchell

World Communion Sunday

Prayer this weekend in preparation for worship: Help us, O God, to recognize the times in which we live and to choose to live faithfully. Grant us courage to stand with and speak for those at risk. As we are able, help us to preserve community and to experience as gift the time you entrust into our hands. Amen.
