For adults, we currently provide the following opportunities:
Reading Between the Lines – Sundays from 9:15AM – 10:15AM
This is a lectionary-based Bible study that uses articles, op-eds, and contemporary resources to help us draw connections between the scripture and how we live out our faith today.
Theology Reading Group – Fourth Tuesday of the Month in the Living Room at 6:30PM
Each month, this group gathers to share insights about a pre-selected book of theology. Recent books have been authored by Marcus Borg, William Barber, Walter Brueggemann, and Henri Nouwen.
