INCHWORMS (Tuesdays, 10 a.m.)

Led by Mary Whitlock, this group pursues a book discussion. In December, we’ll begin inching our way through How to Read the Bible Today by N.T. Wright.

COSMIC CHRISTIANS (Tuesdays, 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.)

This energetic group reads and discusses progressive theology
and its perspective on contemporary issues; facilitated by Kay Klinkenborg.

We began a new book, Coming Back to Earth: From gods, to God, to Gaia by Lloyd Geering, on Tuesday, October 23rd. Geering takes us on a journey that explores the evolution of religion and the history of the Christian faith as we encounter new understandings of our faith in the face of the ecological crisis which has been said to be the most important problem humans have ever had to face.

JUMP START (Tuesdays, 3:30 p.m.)

A lively discussion of next Sunday’s Scriptures. Fellowship, study, and discussion of four Bible passages assigned for the upcoming Sunday’s worship service from Old Testament, Psalms, and New Testament. Bring a light snack to enjoy.
