Sunday Bible Study – Most Sundays at 10:15 am

Parkinson Room with the Rev. Doug Wigner

In Advent we began a new year in our Revised Common Lectionary, and Luke will be our gospel heard Sunday mornings in worship. In a commentary on Luke, Jesus is called The Compassionate Christ — we’ll discover if that is true. We’ll explore how preachers might approach the text for that Sunday and if you were preaching, what would you say? We’ll meet in the Parkinson Room (ideally) or over Zoom (if necessary for safety).


Intentional Spirituality Group – First Sunday of the month, 10:15 am

Peterkin Parlor or Zoom, with Brother Leo Campos and the Rev. Hilary Streever.

Peterkin Parlor or Zoom, with Brother Leo Campos and the Rev. Hilary Streever. What does it mean to be spiritual as a Christian? How can we develop spiritual disciplines that bring us closer to Christ daily? Led by Br. Leo Campos and the Rev. Hilary Streever, the Intentional Spirituality Group is a holy space for walking in the Way of Christ together. We share ancient and new spiritual practices, prayerfully read relevant books together, hold each other accountable to disciplines, and support each other in the Way. The group also meets for retreats. Drop in or come regularly!
