The Return of the Prodigal Son: A Story of Homecoming
October 13, 27, November 3
led by Rev. Chuck Williamson
Rembrandt's painting "The Return of the Prodigal Son" evokes the loving tenderness of a father who has found what was lost. For 3 weeks, Chuck Williamson will guide discussion on the famous parable the painting depicts. You'll likely find yourself in some character of the painting.

Henri Noun's book Return of the Prodigal Son: A Story of Homecoming will serve as a guide to discussion. Reading it is not essential to be part of the conversation, but you might choose to read along as a personal study.

This class uses its round-table setting to exchange ideas from the day's lesson about understanding Scripture and applying it to our lives.

Oct. 6 and Oct. 13 - Have you ever wondered what happened to the disciples after Jesus' death and resurrection? What do we know? What does legend tell us? How have they influenced our faith, or not? Join us for 5 weeks as we discover what we know about the lives of the early apostles.

Oct. 27 and Nov. 3 -Why So Many Protestant Denominations? - led by Bill Stevenson

This class presents rotating topics that invite exploration of Scripture and ways of living the faith personally and for the world. Teaching and discussion are attentive to the needs and interests of those who are navigating mid-life passages, but
