Special at the Minden Press-Herald
As September approaches, a feeling of nostalgia pervades many of us: remembering the first day of school, Labor Day family reunions, a new season with new beginnings. In Minden, for many women, this represents a different kind of beginning: the Friday morning Bible study. For nearly 45 years, on the first Friday after Labor Day, a community-wide Bible study began in the home of Judge and Mrs. Graydon Kitchens.
“Friday Morning,” as the hundreds of women who have attended it over the years affectionately call it, is a verse-by-verse study of the Bible, carefully studying the historical context, the original languages, and the application of God’s words. to our company. Roberta Kitchens shares that the ladies who come find a warm, welcoming and “safe” community of women who share joys and concerns. This is not a prayer group, but prayer is a vital part of any Bible study and those with special needs are encouraged to stay after study time for special prayer when the need arises. feel. We have seen a lot of miracles!
This year, on Friday, September 6, a Bible Friendship Café will be held at the Kitchens House at 423 Garrison Trail. The event starts at 9:30 a.m. and Bible study ends at 11:00 a.m. each week. Roberta shares the group’s ecumenism, saying that over the years people of Episcopals, Methodists, Mormons, Catholics, Baptists, Baptist missionaries, Presbyterians, non-denominational and others have been a part of their gathering.
Our weekly meeting will be in the First Baptist Reception Hall. The reception hall is welcoming and comfortable. The cafe is still on!
This year our study will include the Old Testament books of EXODUS and DEUTERONOMY. Plans and a study guide will be available. We study on the assumption that the Bible is the infallible and inspired Word of God. We find the Bible to be the best commentary on itself. If you are looking for a true study of the Word of God; if you are looking for laughter and unconditional love, know that you will find them at “Friday Mornings” every week from September to the end of May. There is plenty of parking space. You are expected. THE DOOR IS ALWAYS OPEN!
