Adult Bible Studies

The Apocrypha: 15 Books Not Included

Thursday Morning Bible Study

9:30 - 11:30 am

Begins May 5
Led by Julia Walker

Meets on Zoom

The Apocrypha books can be of immense value as windows into the development of biblical interpretation, theology, ethics, and liturgy in Early Judaism and Christianity, as well as into the sociocultural and historical contexts within which these developments occurred.  Join us as we take a look at the books not considered to be part of the “Protestant” Bible but are included in both Catholic and Orthodox Bibles.  The class will begin Thursday, May 5th at 9:30 - 11:30 on Zoom.

Freeing Jesus: Resdiscovering Jesus as Friend, Teacher, Savior, Lord, Way, and Presence

Women's Bible Study

Wednesdays 10:00 - 11:30 am

6 weeks, Begins May 25
Led by Kim Carroll

Meets on Zoom

In Freeing Jesus, author Diana Butler Bass challenges the idea that Jesus can only be understood in static, one-dimensional ways, and asks us to instead consider a life where Jesus grows with us and helps us through life's challenges. It's an invitation to rediscover Jesus in all his manifestations (Friend, Teacher, Savior, Lord, Way and Presence) and to experience Jesus beyond the narrow confines we have built around him. Participants will read a chapter and related scriptures each week to prepare for in class discussions. 

Please purchase and read the first chapter by the first week of class. Book is available here.
