Steeple Study Encore-for those who missed it the first time! What are church steeples? When did they arise? What do they symbolize? As we pray about and discern how to move forward with our own steeple, it will be helpful—and hopefully fun!—for us to do a little digging into questions like these. Therefore, all are invited to join Paul for a “Steeple Study” on Sunday, August 11 at 4:00 p.m. We’ll look at the history of church steeples and their significance as symbols for our faith, as well as share stories about how different steeples have been important to us. This will be the same material that was presented at the June study.

Israel Trip: Would you like to go to the Holy Land? With Dr. Tony Cartledge (a.k.a. “Mr. Rogers”)? AND friends from Winter Park?! Dr. Cartledge and his colleagues at Nurturing Faith Publishing are organizing a trip to Israel May 19-29  2020, and they’re inviting some of their favorite churches to join them! If you would be interested in participating in this fun, educational, and spiritually enriching opportunity, please see Paul for more information. We’d love for some of our Winter Park family to take part in this experience!
