Bible 101
Bible 101 is back to meeting in-person on Sundays. However, we will continue to be available on Zoom, since that drew so many people during the pandemic. Each week we discuss a Bible passage, delving into the history, the context, and grappling with its meaning in our lives. We ask a lot of questions and operate under the wise words of our founder "no Sunday School answers." more....
A Congregational Meeting has been called by the Session for Sunday, July 25, 2021 immediately following worship. The purpose of this meeting is to elect members of the nominating committee.
The next monthly ASAP gathering is Thurs, July 22 at noon. Lunch will be a “Farmers Market” theme and the program is the “ASAP Olympics.” Please bring your pop tabs, items for the Welcome Home Kits, and school supplies.
Our 2021 Vacation Bible School has been postponed. We look forward to sharing news of our next awesome children's ministry opportunity.
