Invitation to the Old Testament (short-term Disciple Bible study)

Bible Stories for Adults
Do you know only the basic stories that we teach in Sunday School? Then join us Thursday mornings from 10-11 as we explore the entirety of some of the main Bible stories. We'll learn ALL about King David's life, explore what happens after Jonah is swallowed by a whale (and whether that was really a whale), etc. No reading is necessary in preparation, and we'll meet Sept. 18 through Nov. 20.

Taizé Worship October - May
What is Taizé?
Spend a brief hour and renew your spirit with a worship service of music and meditation. Taizé Worship, based on the teachings of Brother Roger from Taizé France, uses music with "simple" melody lines and periods of silence to quiet the soul and renew the spirit. There is no sermon, just a brief reading and a few questions to consider.
Join us in October after the summer break. Peace.
