Our study for Summer 2018 focuses on “The Life of David”.
In the past, we have studied from the Listening for God series of books. They are excellent compilations of short stories from contemporary writers who, in one way or another, are challenged and confronted by the presence of God. The characters and scenes are often presented in highly unusual and unorthodox situations.
We have also discussed love and ethics as interpreted through the Bible in the Love and Faithfulness study group. Another popular season was centered on the beloved C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia.
Led by either Pastor Arden Strasser, Associate Pastor Martha Jacobi, or a guest lecturer, these study and discussion groups are enlightening, highly interactive, and personally expressive moments of witness in a non-judgmental arena. See the Calendar for dates and times.
