From beginning photographers to experts, members have widely varying degrees of photographic expertise and experience and are willing to share their knowledge. Each month a photographic topic is chosen, and the fun begins. You will be welcomed.

Thursday

Thursday at 11 a.m. is a program “God, Jesus, and the Pandemic. How Some of American Christianity Got it Wrong!”

This program will be held in-person at the Briggs Center and online via Zoom. Call or email for a reservation. Send email to all@alpenacc.edu for online information.

A lot of Americans are tired of the pandemic, but there has been little discussion about what it reveals about God. What does this pandemic tell us about the nature of the Christian faith and God? How much of the Christian response got involved in the wrong side of the issue? Are we asking the wrong questions.

This presentation will reflect on the book by New Testament scholar and former Anglican Bishop N.T. Wright, “God and the Pandemic: A Christian Reflection on the Corona Virus and its Aftermath.”

Bob Case is a pastor emeritus from the First Congregational United Church of Christ. He continues to offer thoughtful presentations, giving ALL members much to consider and ponder.

Monday

Monday’s program, “Music, Painting, and a Healthy You,” will be held from 1 – 3 p.m. and will only be held at the Briggs Center. A $20 material fee and pre-registration is required by calling 358-7207 by Sept. 14.

In this music workshop, participants will paint to the sound frequencies of music, making it a subconscious painting exercise. Materials will be provided and participants will be able to take their paintings home with them.
