Buffet for the Soroptimists
Soroptimist International of South Lake Tahoe will meet Wednesday at noon at Harveys Resort Casino in the Garden Buffet on the convention center floor.
The program will be about breast cancer awareness.
Make moves at the library
Every fourth Tuesday of the month, homeschoolers can meet to play chess at the El Dorado Branch Library, from 10 to 11 a.m.
The intention of the club is to provide players, 8 years and older, with chess partners in order to enhance their chess skills.
Players must have a basic knowledge of chess rules in order to play. Mentors may be available in the future, but this is not a chess class.
Please bring your own chess board and meet in the adult section at the large table. If you are the first to arrive, please be patient, as we tend to trickle in between 10 and 10:15 a.m.
Younger siblings are welcome to watch, but please accompany your younger child, as we have to be quiet.
The next meeting will be this Tuesday.
For more information, call Melissa at (530) 573-1670.
Break bread, talk Christianity
The community is invited to the Lake Tahoe Community Presbyterian Church for the start of the fall’s ALPHA course and an in-depth study of the book of Romans.
A dinner will be served at 6 p.m. with the programs starting at 7 p.m.
It is the fifth year the church has presented the ALPHA course and it welcomes anyone who is curious, interested or has questions about Christianity.
There is no pressure, no phone list or follow up. The church simply offers an opportunity to share a little hospitality with people and provide them an opportunity for a straight-forward presentation of Christianity.
The presentation is “Christianity: Boring, Irrelevant or Untrue?” It is by English lawyer and minister Nicky Gumble.
At 7 p.m. following dinner, the Rev. Steven Blocher will begin a detailed study of Paul’s Letter to the Romans in which we discover the single most precise and convincing argument for our response to God’s saving work through Jesus Christ.
All the big words will be made understandable. Each presentation and study will be followed by an opportunity for questions and discussion.
Those wishing to include dinner, there is a $4 requested donation. Please RSVP by calling (530) 544-3757.
