Scripture, Science, Christianity and Islam
In August, we wrap up our summer classes, exploring each Sunday’s sermon scripture. In September we launch the new semester with two exciting series:
Faith and Science: Roanoke College professor Dr. James Peterson teaches on September 9, 16 and 23.
Jesus Fatwah: Dr. Saleem Ahmed, professor at the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, teaches this five-Sunday series on our Muslim Neighbors beginning September 30. 
Journey Groups Return: Spend time learning and exploring theology and faith in small groups as our Journey Groups return! Meetings (mostly on Sunday evenings) will preview on September 16 and start up September 23-November 18 (with a break for Fall Festival on October 28). Topics will include two book groups, writing, meditation and music, knitting, Bible study and faith and fun for families. 

A New Ministry: Women at the Well
We invite all women of the parish to be part of a new ministry, Women at the Well, which grew out of this summer’s women’s retreat. We’ll meet once a month in the parish hall for a potluck, offering contributions that will go toward one or more programs focused on women and children. Fall dates: Sept. 13, Oct. 11, Nov. 8, Dec. 6. at 6 p.m. Contact the Reverend Whitney Burton for more information, wburton@stjohnsroanoke.org.
