Young Adult Bible Study

In our busy world, we often find it difficult to find time to reflect on the word of God let alone to sit down and discuss it. We are starting a Bible study for Young Adults, ages 18-35, on Wednesdays at 7 p.m. at the church, beginning September 13 in room 210. To help us determine the best time and what other accomodations we should prepare, please fill out the survey at .

Mockingbird Book Club, Sept. 24

A Theology in Outline: Can These Bones Live? is Princeton professor Robert W. Jenson’s concise and accessible overview of Christian theology as a response to the question posed to the prophet Ezekiel: “Son of man, can these bones live?” Rev. Jason Micheli will lead a book club on Sept. 24 focusing on A Theology in Outline with Mockingbird,, an organization devoted to connecting the Christian faith with the realities of everyday life.

Current Monday night online class:

"The Lion is the Lamb: The Gospel According to John the Revelator"

Have you been enjoying the current sermon series and want to dig deeper? Jason’s online Monday night class at 7 p.m. is currently focused on Revelations! Join in at .

The idea of forseeing the future or “end times” has sparked the curiosity of just about every person on the planet. Not surprisingly, the book of Revelation has fascinated students of the Bible for centuries. Yet because it is riddled with symbolism and metaphor, visions and dreams, it has also stimulated controversy and debate. But what if Revelation was meant to be read as a companion to John’s Gospel, similar to Luke-Acts? What if the secret to understanding the Apocalypse is in taking the time to read the Old Testament prophets? Starting this summer, we’ll take a deep dive in to the final book of the Bible so as to understand the cosmically good news it offers a Church always in need of hopeful encouragement to stay the way of the cross.
