New CE Bible Study Coming Soon!
Join us in September as we try out a new series based on resources from TheBibleProject.com! Each week will be focused on a particular theme or topic in Scripture. We will read scripture, listen to a brief audio segment about the text and how it relates to our current time, engage with a short video, and dive into discussion! This study allows us to engage with scripture in new ways and discover its relevance for us still! Each week you will receive scripture and a brief audio clip to review before the class, as well as the link for the Zoom class.
We hope you will join us Wednesdays at 5:00 pm via Zoom beginning September 9th!
Next Movie Discussion: "Brian Banks"
Join us for one of two reflection opportunities via Zoom
Tuesday (8/25) at 2:00 pm
Wednesday (8/26) at 6:00 pm
Join Pastor Stephanie in a movie discussion based on the film Brian Banks!
Based on an inspirational true story of Brian Banks who had dreams at an early age of playing in the NFL. This movie portrays his life after spending a decade in prison and trapped on probation after being wrongfully convicted in his youth. He tries to clear his name to resume his dream of playing in the NFL. This movie looks at the efforts he went to to clear his name, the difficulty of life on probation, and the justice system from the angle of life after prison. We hope you will watch the movie and join us to reflect on this extraordinary story.
We read together and discussed the memoir, “The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates” by Wes Moore.
Here is a synopsis of the book:
Two kids named Wes Moore were born blocks apart within a year of each other. Both grew up fatherless in similar Baltimore neighborhoods and had difficult childhoods; both hung out on street corners with their crews; both ran into trouble with the police. How, then, did one grow up to be a Rhodes Scholar, decorated veteran, White House Fellow, and business leader, while the other ended up a convicted murderer serving a life sentence? Wes Moore, the author of this fascinating book, sets out to answer this profound question. In alternating narratives that take readers from heart-wrenching losses to moments of surprising redemption, The Other Wes Moore tells the story of a generation of boys trying to find their way in a hostile world.
Two groups were offered with each meeting weekly for a month. One led by Rev. Dion and Jon Nickel using Zoom and the second led by Rev. Herrin and Josh Fox offered at the same time, in person in our Fellowship Hall, at tables with chairs socially distanced, (except for couples ), wearing masks and sanitizing before and after the meeting.
There are 23 people reading the book between the two groups. There have been thoughtful discussions in both groups. We highly recommend this book to the congregation.
Stay tuned for announcements about future adult education offerings.
