Next Sunday, May 22, will be the last 11am worship service for at least the summer – the congregation decided among themselves. The plan is for some of us to get together sometime in August to look at how we do the service and then to reboot and recruit with a possible restart mid-September to October.
 
Surprise! The Unexpected Acts of God This will be the new sermon series beginning April 23. We will be following the unlikely, ironic, and surprising stories in this lectionary series.  As we explore the journey of surprises in these texts, we will learn the spiritual habit of welcoming an unpredictable God and coming to expect the unexpected.

Biblical Literacy

We will be offering an opportunity to know the Bible more clearly, dearly, and nearly. We will meet weekly at 6pm beginning April 21 and go five weeks till May 19. We will consider how the Bible came to be, examine the themes of the Hebrew scriptures, the similarities and differences of the Gospels, the purpose of the epistles, while paying close attention to context and content. Our guiding text is “Making Sense of the Bible” by Adam Hamilton (we have a number of books on order). We hope that you will be able to join us and grow in relationship with God’s Word.
