Christ calls us into beloved community where all are valued and where we see and affirm the holy in one another. But the challenges of becoming beloved community are endless. As we come back together after summer, after pandemic, in the midst of divisions on many levels, we Jesus-followers are called to courageous conversation, to listening to one another’s stories, to sharing our own, and to seeking Christ’s face in even those who are different from us. This fall, we will work together to foster connection, to be vulnerable and authentic with one another, and to strengthen our capacity for empathy and compassion. As we seek curiosity, courage, and connection, we pray that God leads us to glimpse hope, joy, and beauty – and to become the community God created us to be.
This fall, dig deeper into the Bible and how it came to be with Animate: A Bible Study. Pastor Sarah will be leading a faith formation series that explores seven big conversations about the Bible, including the process of creating the Biblical canon we know, the history of the ways we access the scriptures – from parchment to smart phones, how we make sense of the two testaments, the good news of the gospels, the various genres of literature found in the Bible, how we move beyond just reading to allow the Bible to grab us, and take hold in our hearts, and how to find grace in the places where scriptural interpretations have caused wounds. Each week we will begin with a video featuring a leading contemporary Christian voice, including folks like Phyllis Tickle, Rachel Held Evans, Jose Morales, and Will Willimon, followed by a discussion of what we are learning.
Pastor Sarah is offering two sessions of the study each week – Monday evenings at 7:00 pm in person at the church, as well as Tuesdays at noon via Zoom. Journals which accompany the study are available for purchase in the church office. The cost is $20.
We will begin the Women’s Weekly Bible Study in person Wednesday, September 8 from 9:30-11:30 in Fellowship Hall. This 6 to 8 week study, is "Pursued" by Jennifer Coward. We will explore the main theme that runs throughout the stories in the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation: God’s relentless love for us and how to experience a personal relationship with God. For more information and to order a book, please contact Jeanne Ambrosier or the church office.
