Spirit Garage - The Church with the Really Big Door

Wisdom for Life


"The problem in the world is that we've just forgotten that we belong to each other." - Mother Teresa

We only know what we are willing to learn. The greatest learning comes through open and constuctive conversation. This month Spirit Garage invites you to connect with others to learn more about yourself, others, and God's Creation. There is something for everyone. Sunday mornings we will be walking through the Book of Proverbs #wisdom4life, timeless biblical wisdom. There are also a number of other opportunities in the month ahead.


Virtues of Christian Living - An Online Small Group
Tuesday, October 6, 7:30 PM, CST.
(Meets every 1st and 3rd Tuesday)
Please RSVP to Curtis 24 hours ahead.

Get home from work, relax have dinner, then at 7:30 CST log on to your computer for a little Bible study. This is an extension of the original Virtues of Christian Living group that met in person; but now meet online. We are aiming at using the lessons from Bible and incorporating them into our own lives. We usually follow the worship services, but not always sometimes we have special needs. We meet over google hang out twice a month. If you are interested please let me know by signing up, I will invite you to the google hangout group. I'll either need your google email account or a phone number to call you at. If we can get a google email address from you we will be able to include you on the video call, and use a shared online bible.


BELONGING - Sunday, October 11, 1:30-4:30 PM

It's all about the acceptance, forgiveness, and love of Jesus. Want to get to know others, learn more about Spirit Garage to determine if this is the place for you to start or continue your faith journey? Jesus regularly gathered with others over a meal, we thought we would do likewise. Join us for a meal on Sunday, October 11, from 1:30 - 4:30 PM. Your ticket is reading through the Belonging Guide. Location will be determined based on the number attending and will be shared with you closer to the date. Carpools from the Music Box are provided.

 Women's Book Study
 "Tattoos of the Heart" by Gregory Boyle

 Meeting in October 13
 at Loring Park Dunn Brothers

 For twenty years, Gregory Boyle has run Homeboy Industries, a gang-intervention program located in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles, the gang capital of the world. In Tattoos on the Heart, he  distills his experience working in the ghetto into a breathtaking series of parables inspired by faith. Arranged by theme and filled with sparkling humor and glowing generosity, these essays offer a stirring look at how  full our lives could be if we could find the joy in loving others and in being loved unconditionally. Learn how to feel worthy of God's love. The importance of being known and acknowledged. Understand the kind of  patience necessary to rescue someone from the darkness. In each chapter we benefit from Boyle’s gentle, hard-earned wisdom. These essays about universal kinship and redemption are moving examples of the  power of unconditional love and the importance of fighting despair. Gorgeous and uplifting, Tattoos on the Heart reminds us that no life is less valuable than another. Books available in the Library or Online. Find us on Facebook. Questions contact: Debbie
