The Great Spiritual Migration: How the World's Largest Religion Is Seeking A Better Way to Be Christian

Lead by Pastor Ralph Anderson
January 24 – February 14 2021

During the next four weeks we will be exploring the ideas of provocative contemporary theologian, Brian McLaren, who invites us to reflect on our current belief systems in our search for religious meaning. “We're a people on the move,” McLaren says. “We’re seeking a better way to be Christian.” So, join me in trying to figure out what in the world he means! It will be a fascinating journey!

Thursday Night Bible Study

The Book of Ecclesiastes
February 15 – March 29 2021

This Spring, we will be diving into the Wisdom Literature of the Hebrew Bible. I can’t think of a better book to find comfort and solace in this Lent than the book that brought us: “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.” Let us explore in depth the wisdom that has lasted centuries and still rings true for us today.

A Place to talk

Join Pastor Hank and Dr. Fennell weekly on Thursday's at 10 a.m. for continuing conversation on issues related to the pandemic and growing older gracefully.

A Contemporary Faith: The Saint John’s Bible
Lead by Michaela Eskew
October 25 – November 29 2020

The Saint John’s Bible is the first completely handwritten and illuminated manuscript commissioned by the Catholic church since the invention of the printing press. It’s beautiful artistry is found on every page, even in the mistakes. This isn’t your typical Bible, I assure you!

Join me in exploring Biblical texts in a way like never before, where contemporary science and history lie intertwined with the sacred scriptures and jump off the page in both texture and color.
