Meeting for the six weeks of Lent, this group will be studying the Biblical Book of Ruth to look at the many different ways we can be "Moms", the varing views of femaleness, and what it means to put our families first. We'll have drinks and a light snack available.


Pastor’s Study

Luke will lead this study on Wednesday Evening at 7:00pm or Thursday Morning at 9:30 in 206 starting February 21.


Online Discussion Group

Starting Thursday, February 15

Perfect for those of us who are too busy to commit to an in-person study or prefer to take time to study and read a text before sharing, or who like to stay in their pajamas!

Led by Liz, this six-week study invites us to read and comment along as we study Parker Palmer’s “A Hidden Wholeness”. In A Hidden Wholeness, Parker Palmer speaks to our yearning to live undivided lives—lives that are congruent with our inner truth—in a world filled with the forces of fragmentation. 

Participants will be given a discussion prompt which invites them to share their own reflections and encourages each person to comment on at least two other posts. A new prompt will  be posted twice per week. You can order the book by clicking the picture to the right.
