    • Sept 16 - Asking for Help
    • Sept 23 - Being an Authentic, Compassionate Church
    • Sept 30 - Healthy Discussions in a healthy Church.
  • Pastor's Round Table - At a round table there is no head. All seats are equidistant from the center. With that in mind, the Roundtable is a new study this fall, offering a space to dialogue and draw on the insights and reflections of our ministers, as well as all those around table. Most weeks will involve reflection on the scripture text from the previous week's sermon, with deeper study of the passage and conversation about its message and significance. At times, the Roundtable might also focus on a topic relevant to our church and community. While Alan will facilitate many weeks, at times other pastors on our staff or other invited guests will facilitate the Roundtable.. 102
  • Friendship At The Margins - This group will read and discuss the book, "Friendship at the Margins."  Our completeness in Christ is found in the interchange made possible in heart-to-heart relationships with people made in the image of God.  Are our missions opportunities task-oriented or helping us to develop relationships?  We will explore how to navigate these new relationships by those in our community who do it all the time.  Led by Kim Priddy |102
    • If you have any questions about this book or any of our missions opportunities, please contact Kim - Email | x295
  • Bible Study of Zechariah - A chapter by chapter examination of the Prophecy of Zechariah.  The prophecy was penned around 520 B.C., a mere two months after Zechariah's contemporary Haggai had written to urge Jews recently from the Babylonian exile to rebuild the Temple.  While the people made ready to "rise up and build" (Nehemiah 2:18), Zechariah urged them to repent, reform and revive as they did.  Their movement was weakened, their cultural enemies were many, and life -- while interesting -- would be far from easy.  In no case, however, should they lose hope for the future.  Known as "the prophet of long vision," Zechariah assured them that "at evening time ther shall be light" (14:7).  Led by Steve Pressley | Chapel
