A new session of GriefShare begins on Wednesday, January 3, 2018 at 7 pm at Pasadena EP Church. GriefShare is a 13 week grief recovery support group to help you recover from your loss and look forward to rebuilding your life. If you are grieving, come and join us – whether your loss was last week or 10 years ago. You will get helpful information and meet with others who understand what you are going through.
Amy Masser, a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, will be leading the discussion group. All are welcome! Feel free to join us any Wednesday – no need to have attended previous sessions. If you have any questions, please contact the church at 410-255-0003 or use our contact form. We intend to close each meeting by 8:30 pm.

A couple weeks ago we started a new Sunday School series on Bibliology. During the first week, we reviewed some of the basics: 39 books in the Old Testament, 27 books in the New Testament, authorship, dates of composition, etc. One important skill is simply navigating the Bible, so it’s important to know the order of the books (even if you happen to read the Bible on your phone, iPad, etc). Anyway, there are a lot of songs to learn the books of the Bible – here’s a new one from Randy Goodgame:
And the New Testament song:
Tomorrow in Sunday School we’ll be watching episode 6 of Dispatches from the Front: The Power of His Rising. This episode will show us some of the mighty work that God is doing in South Asia. Here is a preview . . . see you at 9:30.
Last week the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) held the 41st General Assembly in Greenville, South Carolina. The PCA’s online magazine byFaith posted several articles summarizing the activity (click on the links to the overtures if you want all the details).
This Sunday we’ll start a new Sunday School series called Why We Trust the Bible. Each week we’ll watch a lecture by Stephen Nichols and then Pastor Tom will lead a short discussion. Pastor Tom attended a seminar on this topic at General Assembly last week and found it to be “excellent” (more info here). Here are the six lectures:
- Revelation: Where Would We Be Without It?
- The Authority of Scripture, Part 1: The Doctrine of Inspiration
- The Authority of Scripture, Part 2: The Doctrine of Inerrancy
- Why Sixty-Six Books? The Development of the Canon
- Why So Many Interpretations? The Clarity of Scripture & Interpretation
- Scripture for Life: The Sufficiency of Scripture
Come join us at 9:30 am this Sunday!
Tomorrow we’ll be watching another episode of Dispatches From the Front at Sunday School. This episode is called Father, Give Me Bread and it focuses on the advance of the Gospel in East Africa. Please come early so we have time for discussion following the video. We’ll start promptly at 9:30. Here is a short preview:
A group called Linked EP will have its first meeting in two weeks at Annapolis Evangelical Presbyterian (EP) church. Here is the announcement introducing Linked EP:
is a group focused on prayer, encouragement and networking for the unemployed, underemployed, struggling business owners, and others in our EP community experiencing or anticipating financial hardships. Please note that this is not a “support group” where you will have to share your personal struggles but instead an opportunity to connect with folks from our EP family of churches. [Note that “EP family of churches” refers to a particular community of churches in the Annapolis area, of which Pasadena EP is one]. If you are experiencing this challenge or have the interest or ability to come alongside others in this place, we would love to have you participate.
The first meeting is Tuesday April 30 at 7:00pm in Room 121A at Annapolis EP Church. If you are on either side of this struggle please attend this meeting. This is about the church community helping the church community. Information is available on Sundays in the Fellowship Hall on April 21st and 28th. You can also reach Linked EP via email at LinkedEP@gmail.com.
