Bible Study
Sunday Morning Bible Study/Personalizing Bible Stories
Leader: Katie Ross/Josh Gilhart/Hans Killius
Location: Chapel at 9:45am from September to June
 
In this interactive class we will read and study many of the familiar Bible stories. We will look at them from a very human perspective. What do we think the main characters were thinking and feeling? What do we think that God was trying to tell them? What is God trying to tell us through these stories? There will also be time for sharing joys, concerns and Christian fellowship.
 
Resource: The 52 Greatest Stories of the Bible by Kenneth Boa and John Alan Turner.     
 
Sunday Afternoon Book Study/Waking Up White and Finding Myself in the Story of Race
Leaders: Ann Kellermeyer, Pam Jan, Cheri Duncan
Location: Chapel at 12:15pm 
 
Join us for a four-week book study based on Debby Irving's 2014 book, Waking Up White, in which she shares her own story of transformation – a journey of opening herself to learning about the realities of racism and the unintended impacts of white privilege. Join us for an hour each Sunday after worship as we learn more about how to love God and love others as ourselves.
