“Is Heaven For Real?”
In the Resurrection narrative found in John 20, Mary Magdalene meets the risen Christ in the garden and believes him to be the gardener. Is this just another good “ghost story” or is the afterlife proclaimed by the church a real thing – “the Gospel truth”?
Rev. Bryn Smallwood-Garcia discusses what we, as modern, thinking Christians, might be able to believe about heaven and hell.

Thursday Morning Prayers & Bible Study
9:00 to 10:30am in the Church Library
Begin your day with a time of quiet contemplation in a simple ministry of prayer, as we lift up the names of those who are sick or grieving, who are in discernment, or have thanksgiving or celebration to share. We will have a brief Bible study of our weekly lectionary scripture texts, led by Senior Pastor Bryn Smallwood-Garcia. Join us every Thursday, or drop in as you have a need for prayer or a morning free for study.
If you would like more information, speak to one of our pastors at 203-775-1259 or e-mail the church at email@example.com.
