Lenten small groups sign-up begins this Sunday, January 14, at the Mission Fair. Online sign-up begins Tuesday, January 16. 

We are reading Amazing Grace: A Vocabulary of Faith by Kathleen Norris and examining key words of the Christian church that have puzzled, intrigued, and inspired seekers and followers for centuries. 

Skilled congregation and staff leaders will guide us as we meet others, find deeper community, and expand our relationship with God.  Weekday evening, daytime, and Sunday groups are available. See the schedule and find your group. 
Adult Education

Our January all-ages series "The Worst Bible Stories" continues this Sunday, January 14, with Shane Berg helping us through Matthew 2:16-18 and  the relationship between God's will and human evil. The class is 9:15AM in the Assembly Room. The all-ages series is for youth, middle-school-age and up, and adults. 

This Sunday we also have a special Mission Weekend noon class on the violence against the Rohingya people in Myanmar. At  12:15PM in the Assembly Room, w ith expert Lex Rieffel, we'll ask, what has happened to democratic reform in Myanmar and why does Aung San Suu Kyi seem unwilling, or unable, to oppose the military campaign against the Rohingya? 
In a project with Princeton Theological Seminary our church's Christian educators are sharing with other churches "why we do what we do" in the Time with Children part of our worship services. Click through above to learn more about the project and read an essay by Carol Wehrheim.
