The group will be reading the book "A Same Kind of Different as Me" by Ron Hall. The book is about a dangerous, homeless drifter who grew up picking cotton in virtual slavery. An upscale art dealer accustomed to the world of Armani and Chanel. A gutsy woman with a stubborn dream. A story so incredible no novelist would dare dream it.
It begins outside a burning plantation hut in Louisiana…and an East Texas honky-tonk…and, without a doubt, in the heart of God. It unfolds in a Hollywood hacienda…an upscale New York gallery…a downtown dumpster…a Texas ranch.
Gritty with pain and betrayal and brutality, this true story also shines with an unexpected, life-changing love.
The Youth Sunday School class has begun something new and we would like to invite others who would like to dive into the Bible in a new way to join us! We have begun Bible Journaling, a fun and creative way to write out a verse using alternate lettering, and/or drawings, using colors, stamps, stickers, tape, scrapbook paper, and imagination to bring a verse to life. Each verse brings to mind different images for the individual and journaling is a great way to share and discuss the Word. It is also a great way to keep the verses in your heart. Stay tuned for more examples! All ages are welcome Sunday mornings at 10 a.m.
The family of Polly Wallace has graciously donated their grand piano to Roxboro Presbyterian Church. The Session is extremely appreciative of their generosity and offers prayers of gratitude. We will have a special dedication for the new piano during worship next Sunday. As part of the dedication service, we will also have a recital on Sunday afternoon, at 4:00 pm featuring soprano Megan Cleaveland and Jennifer Walker, pianist. Megan is a graduate of North Carolina School of the Arts. We invite the community to come join us in the celebration of this very generous gift from the Wallace family!
