We Make The Road by Walking, Mondays 1:00 pm or Wednesdays 6:30pm
We’ve got a great study to guide us this Fall, We Make the Road by Walking by Brian McLaren. What are we seeking in life? What is the Christian way? Where do we find that Good News that Jesus promised? I invite you to join me in discussing these questions during our zoom study groups on Monday afternoons and Wednesday evenings. Order your book and read through Chapter 1 to be ready on September 19.

Journey Through the Old Testament
Mondays, 6:30 pm
Join our Bible study, as we journey through the books of the Old Testament. We pay special attention to the characters we used to study as children in Sunday School, the role of women, and unusual little facts that help us gain insights into our sacred text. We read manageable chunks of the Bible, learn a bit of Old Testament history along the way, and follow up with questions and discussion of the readings. Join us for a single session, when you can, or every time, as we laugh, share, question, and grow our spiritual understandings.

What Is the Bible?: How an Ancient Library of Poems, Letters, and Stories Can Transform the Way You Think and Feel About Everything- By Rob Bell
Join Pastor Tanya for eight weeks of fun and fellowship with Rob Bell’s book, What Is the Bible? Whether you have been reading the Bible for a long time or if you are a newcomer, Rob Bell offers an array of insights into how we approach this amazing library. There will be plenty of inspiration and controversy to discuss with Bell’s keen eye and sense of humor. Together with Bell’s assistance, we will pull back the curtain of what was going on when the stories were written and how we can use that information to inform our own spiritual journey today. If you want a new way to read the Bible, this is the discussion group for you. In Bell’s own words:
This is a book about a library of books dealing with loss and anger and transcendence and worry and empire and money and fear and stress and joy and doubt and grace and healing, and who doesn’t want to talk about those? (Bell, What Is the Bible? p. 4).
Here is the reading breakdown

Scenes from John 1-12: Insights from the Shakespeare of the New Testament
Tuesdays, 7:00-8:00 pm
The Gospel of John conveys profound truths through stories with simple storylines. By walking through the first twelve chapters of the Fourth Gospel as a multilayered drama we will see how the writer sees what it means to follow Jesus.
We’ll start on September 21 and go seven or eight sessions on Tuesday evenings from seven until eight.
