- Five different Bible Study groups gather during the course of a week to deepen our understanding of the Scriptures as we view them through current scholarship, share our insights, and support each other as we attempt to live it out.
- Following worship on Sundays, “35 Good Minutes” offers an introduction to the sacred writings, historical themes, and relevant concepts of the Christian faith. You don’t have to sign up or call ahead. Just meet us in the chapel for some coffee and a half hour that will get you up to speed on matters of faith.
- Wednesday evenings serve as our “Midweek Connection.” We share a meal, engage a topic through lecture, film, or interview, and then spend time discussing ways that we might think and live in new ways.
- Each year our Ella Dodd Distinguished Lecture Series invites a nationally recognized scholar or author to open our minds and hearts to new ways of understanding our faith.
