Where Life and Faith Converge

New Bible Study 

Wednesday Evenings

6:00 to 7:30

(Evenings where we watch a movie my go longer)

For Youth and Adults

Pastor Debbie will be starting a new Bible Study program beginning Wednesday, May 2nd at 6:00pm for Adults and Youth.  Light Refreshments will be offered. Posters for this Bible Study and signup sheets will be posted throughout the church and in next week’s eblast, bulletin and website.  “Where Life and Faith Converge” bible study will also be posted on Facebook and NextDoor.

 

Where Life and Faith Converge is a six week Bible study series that focuses on three topics of significance from the Bible: Who You Are In Christ, The Cries of the Poor, and Encountering Grace.  We will explore the meaning of each topic from your own life experiences and from the ways popular culture—movies, music, poetry, art and dance—informs our experiences and understanding of scripture.  At each session we will have selected Scripture passages that relate to our topic, an artistic or cultural experience, and discussion.  There are no right or wrong answers; our goal is to engage in meaningful conversation together and personal reflection. By coming together in faithful curiosity, this Bible Study seeks to strengthen your relationship with others, with yourself, and with God.
