Coffee & Chat is an informal, open discussion forum that is scheduled every Thursday at 9:00 am in the classroom building at the south end of the church campus. Anyone in attendance can propose a topic or a question for discussion, and everyone is welcome to participate. Political discussion is off limits, but just about anything else goes! Of course, there are frequent discussions about the Bible and various religious topics, but each session is unique and the discussion can lead just about anywhere on any given day. Sessions typically last about 2 hours; however, there is no set end time.
Here are some examples of interesting discussions that have occurred at Glen's Den; however, each discussion is interesting, thought-provoking, and relevant.
Immigration - biblical and practical implications
The role of angels
Genesis creation - historical fact or theological stories
The intersection of fate, providence and choice
This is a wonderful fellowship opportunity, so all are invited to come, enjoy a fresh hot cup of coffee, relax, and find out what's happening with everyone present. You can request prayers for needs that you or your friends or family might have, and it is guaranteed that you will get to know everyone there just a little better... but, the best part may be that you will leave a little smarter than when you arrived! No reservations are necessary... just show up!
Formerly known as Glen's Den and The Den, these sessions offer a unique experience that is difficult to describe in words. Even though the name has changed because Pastor Glen Foster has now retired, his influence will always be present. Perhaps the poem below described it best...
There is a place that has more questions than answers As we wrestle with issues of life A place we can go where friends understand And there is no judgment or hint of strife
There is a group of Christian folks That fellowship to all extend That meet each Thursday morning It’s simply called “Glen’s Den”
We pray over each others’ joys and trials Giggle and laugh a lot We have answers to every question(??!) But politics we do not!
Come and join our merry band Give us your wisdom that we need You will have a wonderful time with folks like you And you will surely be blessed indeed
