  • ADULT BIBLE STUDY – “Accidental Saints: Finding God in All the Wrong People” by Nadia Bolz-Weber. WHAT IF THE PERSON YOU’VE BEEN TRYING TO AVOID IS YOUR BEST SHOT AT GRACE TODAY? … AND WHAT IF THAT IS THE POINT? … God keeps showing up in the least likely of people­–a church-loving agnostic, a drag queen, a felonious Bishop, and a gun-toting member of the NRA. In a time when many have rightly become disillusioned with Christianity, Accidental Saints demonstrates what happens when ordinary people share bread and wine, struggle with scripture together, and tell each other the truth about their real lives. This unforgettable account of their faltering steps toward wholeness will ring true for believer and skeptic alike. This study will meet in the Café at 9:30.
  • WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY – The women’s study starting this fall will explore the book, 31 Verses to Write on Your Heart by Liz Curtis Higgs. Join us as we delve into some favorite verses for a deeper understanding while working on finding time with God each and every day. This study will meet in the Office Conference room at 9:30 join us when you can!

TUESDAY NIGHT BIBLE STUDY – Bible Study on the book of Mark, continues Tuesdays from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the Café.

THURSDAY MORNING STUDY GROUP – Thursdays at 9:45 am in the Lakeline Target snack bar. (*Note* – you will enter Target at the opposite end from before).
