Tuesday Night Men’s Bible Study

Monday Morning Women’s Bible Study
Join Rev. Raegan Gilliland for a book study on Freeing Jesus by Diana Butler Bass. In Freeing Jesus, Bass challenges the idea that Jesus can only be understood in static, one-dimensional ways and asks us to instead consider a life where Jesus grows with us and helps us through life’s challenges in several capacities: as Friend, Teacher, Savior, Lord, Way, and Presence. Freeing Jesus is an invitation to leave the religious wars behind and rediscover Jesus in all his many manifestations, to experience Jesus beyond the narrow confines we have built around him. It renews our hope in faith and worship at a time when we need it most.
Monday Afternoon Women’s Bible Study
Join Rita Ward on Monday afternoon from 1 – 3 PM for a women’s bible study in room N154.
