Adults: Faith After Doubt

A book study led by John Daniels.  (13 weeks)

In Faith After Doubt, author Brian McLaren distills 40 plus years of personal struggle, heart to heart conversations and cross disciplinary research about doubt:  Why it’s unavoidable; why, in fact, it’s necessary and valuable; and how to live with it and learn from it.

As we study the book, we will create a safe place to ask questions about the Bible, Jesus, and even the church.  This study is for those who have or almost given up on church or faith.  It is for those who simply doubt the common pat answers to life’s complex questions.  It is for those who still have a passion for the journey of following Christ, but feel all alone in their pursuit.  Sixty-five million adults in the U.S. have dropped out of active church attendance and about 2.7 million are leaving each year.  Faith After Doubt is for the millions of people around the world who feel their faith is falling apart.

Books can be purchased on Amazon or other book retailers.


Adults: The Gospel of John

A bible study led by Jayne Davis.  (7 weeks)

What better way to start off a new year than to look at Jesus’ life and words in Scripture?  To hear how he spoke with people, to see how he cared for people, to understand what was most important to him – so that we can be like him.  So that we can walk more closely with him and learn how to live our lives with the same wisdom and love and grace of Jesus, guided by God’s Spirit.

Over the course of 7 weeks, we will unpacked the Gospel of John together.  We will try to understand what the author meant when the text was written and we will listen to how the text calls us to live faithfully today.

“…so that you may come to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that through believing you may have life in his name.” – John 20:31

Kids

Each week our children will play games, hear a Bible story, learn memory verses, and discover how God is at work around the world.

In order to keep everyone safe in close quarters, please have your child wear a mask. Additionally, all 1-5th graders should bring an NIV Bible. (If you do not have an NIV version, one will be provided for you.) Three, four, and five year olds will meet in the preschool wing and 1-5th graders will gather in the Cove. Weather permitting, we will hold CT outside.

As we continue to navigate the pandemic particularly for our children, know that we place the highest priority on their health and safety.
