  • Bible Study

    Mondays, 12:30pm, in the Chapel or the Zoom Room

    Evolution of the Word: The New Testament in the Order the Books Were Written, by Marcus Borg

     

    We started reading this book during the pandemic, to learn about how Christianity developed in the early centuries and see how it affects our understanding of the New Testament. We stopped in June of 2021 because we were feeling overwhelmed by life (not by the book).

     

    On May 23, we started again at the beginning, and everyone is welcome to join us in person or on Zoom.

  • Zoom Cocktail Hour

    Fridays, 5–6pm

    Bring your beverage of choice and your favorite snacks! We’ll “gather” to share a drink & talk about our week. It would be good to have you with us, to de-stress and laugh together.
