Book Study small groups to start in January 2021 * Attend One - Attend Both *

Book Study Small Group on Sundays begins Jan. 10 on Zoom
Art Ayers extends an invitation to attend a Zoom book study, set to begin on Sunday, January 10, at 3pm. The book is entitled Living the Questions: The Wisdom of Progressive Christianity (2012), and the authors are Rev. David M. Felton and Rev. Jeff Procter-Murphy. It’s a book for those who are looking for a faith conversation that encourages questions and open dialogue.
“Many feel like there’s no place inorganized religion for deep thought, doubt, or questions that challenge the status quo. It’s an invitation for those who seek to go beyond the stagnant clichés of faith and pursue the questions that deepen your understanding, as you make your way through a lifelong spiritual journey…It’s about progressive Christianity”. It will be a five or six week series ending either on February 7th or February 14. If interested, please contact the church office, Mike Tupper, or Art Ayers so we can send you a Zoom Invite. You can order the book yourself or we can order one for you through the church.

If this is of interest to you, please contact the church office, John Gillett or Mike Tupper so we can send you a Zoom invite.
