Wednesday Evening Adult Education
On Wednesday nights from September through May all adults are invited to join us in the Fellowship Hall from 6:30-7:45pm as we learn and grow together. Topics vary and generally we have different units for a few weeks at a time. Recent topics have included: Creation Care, the book of Ruth, Communion, a discussion of We Make the Road by Walking, and Lenten Devotions. Pastor Ben, Minister Kelly, or a volunteer leader may facilitate the conversation depending on the topic. We hope to see you soon!
Lectionary Bible Study
Each Thursday from 9:30-11:00 am, a group gathers in the Fireside Conference Room with whoever will be preaching that coming Sunday to discuss the Bible texts we'll hear in worship. Coffee is served. All are welcome to join any week, no need for ongoing commitment.
Book Discussion Group
The Book Discussion Group meets on the first Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. in the Fireside Conference Room. If you have questions, contact the church office at (612) 866-8471. Everyone is welcome!
Many of our small groups also take time to learn and grow in faith together. They typically ask for more of a commitment to the group but also offer even more opportunities to build friendships. Check out our Small Groups page for more info!
