Along with our amazing Theologian in Residence this fall, our Adult Faith Formation committee has put together a varied list of ways we can deepen our study. We will have several small groups that meet throughout the week that will follow our sermon series or a topic the group decides on together. Go to to see the schedule and to express your interest.

We will also have large group discussions throughout the week—Women’s Wednesday Worship; Friday Men’s Prayer and Bible Study Group; and the Men’s Discussion Group that meets every other Sunday, and, new this year, Steadfast Hope: The Palestinian Quest for Just Peace. Steadfast Hope begins on Oct. 16. For more information about that and the other discussion groups, visit

We are continuing our Christian Perspectives program that connects our faith to issues and events in our world. Stay tuned for information on the next gathering.

Covenant Bible Study starts Sept. 19 at 1:30 p.m., in the Parish House. This is an in-depth group Bible study where participants read and discuss the Bible together, examine what “covenant” means, and the progression of a covenant relationship with God.
