After Hours: Uncommon Ground

In this small group we will consider how Christians can interact with those whose beliefs may radically differ from their own in such a way that shows respect and remains faithful to Christian understandings of the gospel. Along the way, we will discuss how our own experiences with God and others have shaped the way we understand what it means to live out the gospel in every day life.  The group will be led by Pastor Justin and will meet Mondays from 8:30-9:30 p.m. via Zoom, starting June 1.   Click here for more information.

Women's Bible Study

The Lord’s Prayer: A confession of the New Covenant by J. Warren Smith is not a Bible study in the traditional sense. It challenges us to think about the Lord’s Prayer anew by understanding it as a confession of the New Covenant that Christ makes with us when we are made children of God in baptism. In hearing these familiar words afresh we learn to remember our baptismal covenant so that we might live more fully into that new relationship with God and one another. 

This bible study meets on Tuesdays at 10-11:15 a.m. and is Led by Pastor Tobi Nguyen. Click here for more information.
