Major Changes in Healthcare Since 1965

During WNL on February 22nd, Dr. Rush Pierce will discuss “Major Changes in Healthcare Since 1965” in Rooms 149/151 starting at 6:00 PM. We look at the major changes that have occurred in the U.S. over the past 50 years in health outcomes, delivery and financial models, medical education and medical ethics; and implications for the 21st century church.

A SJUMC member, Dr. Pierce practices medicine at UNM Hospital and teaches at the UNM School of Medicine. This will be an interactive session; bring your thoughts & questions and plan to join the discussion!

A Study of Lent

During WNL on March 8th, March 15th, and April 5th, there will be a three-session study of “Lent” led by Fran and Dave Ring.

Session themes include “An Introduction to Lent,” “Protestant/Catholic/Other Lenten Traditions,” and “Holy Week, the Cross, and the Hymnody Thereof.” These classes will be held in Rooms 149/151 starting at 6:00 PM. All are cordially invited.

Intergenerational Class – Screwtape Letters Return

A new Semester and a new round of letters as we continue our Intergenerational Class on C.S. Lewis’ great fiction, The Screwtape Letters, weekly in Room 258 from 6:00 PM—7:00 PM.

Listen as John Cleese, of Monty Python, narrates each correspondence between two demons about how to tempt and manipulate people of faith to turn them into a candidate for Hell. We will then discuss and debate the merit and application of each idea; bring your Bibles.

Kids’ Bible Club

Join us every Wednesday through May 3 to learn about how to be a superhero! The Bible tells us what characteristics we need to be super: helpfulness, creativeness, self-control, and more! We’ll meet in Room 240 at 6:00 PM for games, and then split into age-level classes for a lesson, songs, and hands-on activities! For ages 3 through 5th grade. If you’re singing with NewSound – no problem! Join us at 6:15 PM.

NewSound Children’s Choirs

You can register online, or use one of the brochures found throughout the church. NewSound is for children ages 4 through 5th grade. (We have a family music program for younger children and their caregivers, too.) NewSound participants engage in both choral and instrumental music, as well as learning about the Christian faith. All choirs meet Wednesday afternoons 5:30 PM – 6:15 PM.
