  3. News & Articles : Girl Scouts’ Enrollment Time

    Daisy/Brownie/Junior Girl Scout Troop 1806 will hold its annual enrollment for new rising 1st-5th grade girls, and renewal registration for current or transfer girls on Saturday, August 25, 11:00am-2:00pm, at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church (1200 W. Cornwallis Rd, Durham). GS Troop 1806 will only temporarily enroll eligible girls at the August 25 event. Before making an enrollment permanent, GS Troop 1806 has to make sure there is a patrol at the right grade level with room to take new girls, or enough new girls and adults at that grade level to form a new patrol (new Troop 1806 patrols need a minimum of four girls and two adult co-leaders).

    For Rising 1st grade girls: Families of rising 1st grade girls who want to be Daisy Girl Scouts in Troop 1806 should send an e-mail to Chip prior to August 25 to be placed on the Daisy Girl Scout interest list. Girls on the Daisy interest list receive special information about the joining process, since new patrols have to form for Daisy Girl Scouts. Troop 1806 currently has 18 rising 1st grade girls on its Daisy Girl Scout interest list.

  4. News & Articles : April 18 Aperture: Third Wednesdays

    April 18 Aperture: Third Wednesdays
    “Ossuaries and the Burials of Jesus and James”
    Professor Jodi Magness
    6:30-8pm | Music Room

    Our guest speaker for Aperture: Third Wednesdays in January is UNC-Chapel Hill Professor Jodi Magness, Kenan Distinguished Professor for Teaching Excellence in Early Judaism.

    In 2002, an ossuary inscribed “James son of Joseph brother of Jesus” surfaced in the hands of a private collector. A few years later, a Discovery Channel documentary and related book claimed that the tomb of Jesus and his family has been found in Jerusalem. In this slide-illustrated lecture, we examine the validity of these sensational claims in light of archaeological and historical evidence for ancient Jewish tombs and burial customs in Jerusalem, including the burials of Jesus and his brother James.

    Dinner – baked chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, rolls – will be served from 5:45-6:15pm in the Fellowship Hall. Please sign up for dinner at by Monday, April 16.
