Wiatts’ Advent Study
Hard to believe that Advent season is right around the corner! To help you get into the spirit, we are offering a special short session of Lay Academy that will focus on preparing for Advent. We are excited to be offering a study that will be led by the Wiatts (and written by them too!).
Books for the Advent study: If you sign up for the Wiatts’ Advent study, please email either Nick or Amy to order a book. You will have the option of ordering an electronic copy ($5) hard copy that you would pick up at TUMC ($10), or you can have a hard copy shipped to your house ($15).
A focus will be on the holidays.

7:00 Our Children – Our Future (Large Group Programs & Discussion)
Even before the COVID crisis hit, it’s been noted that there are two Tallahassees: one whose residents earn a living wage or are relatively affluent and another struggling with poverty and all of its effects. In Leon County, 43% of residents live at or below the poverty line, including over 3,000 children under the age of 5. Children living in poverty are at greater risk for academic, health, and safety issues. In this series we’ll hear from leaders of community organizations focused on addressing issues facing children and explore what a Children’s Services Council might do to improve the lives of children in our community. See list of sessions.
9:00 Parenting Village
Leader: Amy Leach
It takes a village…especially in the middle of a pandemic! Put the kids to bed and come join us for some well deserved adult time.
