bible study group: wednesdays begins OCT. 7 @ 6:30pm

As we execute and practice our commitment to being an inclusive, non-racist and justice-seeking Church, let’s take inventory on what it is that we have to offer someone who asks us, individually, about the Bible, about Jesus, about Christianity, especially within the context of our expressions and actions around racism, social justice and inclusion.

Welcome to Disciple I, starting October 7! Discussions will take place on Wednesday nights, 6:30–7:45pm, via Zoom. No winter driving; slippers and comfortable chairs are welcome. Registration is open now!
