Hello Friends!

Adult Forum on Zoom
David K will continue a study on the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:1 – 7:29) for the next few Sundays at 9:30 am.  Please email David for the Zoom link.

“The Sermon on the Mount brings together a lot of Jesus’ moral and ethical teachings in one place and I’ve never spent more than a session on it as part of a larger study of the book of Matthew.  So what I’m planning is a deeper dive into the part of Jesus’ teaching that makes us squirm and explore what it’s saying to us today.”


Between Goodness and Grace: A New Wednesday Zoom Study with Pastor Kern

In her provocative, insightful book, Who Do We Choose to Be, author Margaret J Wheatley invites us to think deeply about Facing Reality, Claiming Leadership, Restoring Sanity.  Dr Wheatley’s book is an invitation to take a new look at how our present world came to be and, significantly, she continually lifts up of the role of leaders in the present era.  The book makes me think about the Exodus and Wilderness story of the people of God, and I will invite participants to overlay this biblical narrative over Wheatley’s teachings and observations.  A little something different, for those who like to dig a little deeper into the sacred space between the church and the world.

Here’s the link.  Please Note – the Start Time is 7 pm each session, Wednesdays September 2 through 30.
