Special Events








For several months out of the year, you will be invited to read different books of the Bible in the way they were first intended, in their entirety AND in community. Much is revealed when we take the parts of scripture we have always heard preached and taught throughout our lives and read them in their literary contexts. We realize that the Bible is less a manual for good living or a book of moral instruction, but an ever-unfolding story of salvation that God wants us to join in on.

Bible Book Club Discussion of Genesis – Tuesday, August 4, at 6:30 p.m.
In the Fellowship Hall (Social Distancing and Masks)

Pastor Patrick will lead a discussion on the book of Genesis. Come and be a part of the discussion even if you do not complete all of the reading plan.
