THE AFTERNOON ADULT ENRICHMENT GROUP IS DOING A STUDY ENTITLED ‘SHORT STORIES BY JESUS: THE ENIGMATIC PARABLES OF A CONTROVERSIAL RABBI’ BY AMY-JILL LEVINE. ‘Levine helps us understand how the original audience heard these stories. She then interprets these stories for the contemporary reader, showing how the parables are not just about Jesus, but also about us-and they still challenge and provoke us two thousand years later.  The group meets on the first and third Thursdays of the month @ 2:00 PM in the church lounge.  Upcoming Meetings: 5/2/19, 6/6/19, & 6/20/19 and (Please note the group will NOT meet on 5/16/19).  All are welcome!

THE EVENING ADULT ENRICHMENT GROUP IS DOING A STUDY ENTITLED ‘ENTERING THE PASSION OF JESUS: A BEGINNERS GUIDE TO HOLY WEEK’ BY AMY-JILL LEVINE.’          “From Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem to his prayerful agony in Gethsemane, Levine brings forward aspects and details that open doors for beginners as well as seasoned readers of the Bible.  She shows how the text raises ethical and spiritual questions for the reader, and how we all face risk in our Christian experience.”  The group meets on the first and last Tuesdays of the month at 7:00 PM in Room #22 of the Christian Education Building (Room will be open at 6:30 PM for those who would like to bring and eat their dinner before the study).
