Greetings from the Windy City! I hope you are all enjoying Fall Break, I know I am.
If you haven’t come by a Wesley event, now is a great time, all are welcome.
Faces of Faith, the small group for first years will be still meeting at the Foundation on Tuesday at 8 this week. This week will be more fellowship than anything else, but Melissa has something planned. If you didn’t come the past few weeks and want to this week, I would like to encourage you to come. Contact Melissa (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you want a ride.
The will be NO WORSHIP THIS WEEK due to Fall Break. Also, NO RESTLESS HEARTS and NO LUNCH AT THE PAV.
Our next IM Sport is Flag Football, which will start next week. More info to follow.
We kick off our Comparative Religion 101 series this semester with a Forum on the basics of Judaism, with Professor Ochs coming to speak. It should prove to be an excellent Forum, make sure to stop by for dinner and the discussion on Thursday.
There’s also this from Lauren and the Witness team: Saturday, 10/18 – Service Retreat part 2! – We’re heading over to Camp Holiday Trails to help them clean up their trails a little bit. Camp Holiday Trails is a camp that seeks to give disabled children a normal camp experience. They’ll give us a short introduction and some instructions. It should be a ton of fun; breakfast will be included. Meet at the Foundation at 8:30 am. We should be done by 11. Again, if you’re interested in helping, let Lauren know as soon as possible (ltg6s).
Here’s what we’ve got going on this week:
8pm Faces of Faith first-year small group. Meet at the Foundation.
5pm Yoga class in Foundation living room. Mats are provided or you can bring your own if you have one. Wear loose fitting clothes.
6pm Free Thursday Night Dinner in the dining room
7pm Forum – Judaism 101 with visiting Judaism Professor Ochs
8:30am Meet at the Foundation for Camp Holiday Trails service event. (See above)
Feel free to contact me with any questions or issues.
I hope to see you some time this week. Happy Fall Break!
