The Book Of Genesis
Leader: Rev. Kent Ingram
Wednesdays (starting September 9-October 7), 6:30 p.m. on Zoom
Live streamed on Facebook and also available via Zoom for direct interaction with the class. Contact Kent for Zoom information.
In this class, we will look at the powerful origin stories and the stories of the creation of a called people. In these stories, we learn who we are, as created children of God and as a community of faith given the task to witness to God’s presence in the world. This class will likely take the entire program year to complete this large, profound, rich book of the Bible.

Praying In Color
Leader: Marjorie Gross
Thursdays (starting September 10-October 8), 6:00 p.m. on Zoom
You must register with Marjorie at [email protected].
Do you find yourself making your grocery list when you sit down to pray? Is it hard to focus your mind when you have a heavy heart, and you want to pray? Praying in Color is fun, creative way to pray that anyone can do. If you are an artist and you want to go elaborate, this is for you! If your style is more a black and blue pen on the back of a receipt, this is for you! Each session, we will be learning a new technique, having some discussion, and then spending time trying it out.
