Sunday Morning Bible Discussion @ Pastor Stacy's Study

We gather every Sunday from 8 – 9:00 am to study scripture and reflect on how God’s word informs our living today. Instead of following a curriculum, we simply choose a book of the Bible and read it out loud together, pausing as we do to reflect on what the text is saying and how it may impact our lives today.  No previous Bible study or Biblical literacy is needed.  Come every Sunday or come when you can.  All are welcome.

Where: Side Chapel

On Wednesday mornings from 7:30 – 8:15 am we gather in the small chapel off the sanctuary for prayer. This time of prayer called “Living Water” is based on the passage in John’s Gospel where Jesus encounters the Samaritan women at the well (John 4:14). It gives us an opportunity to drink in the stillness of the peace and presence of God so that we will be filled and will not thirst as we go into the busyness of our weeks. We begin with 20 minutes of centering/meditative silence. Afterwards we engage lectio divina, listening with our whole hearts to a passage from scripture and sharing the invitation we may have heard for ourselves. In closing we light candles of prayers for celebrations and/or concerns we may have.

Exploring the Bible/Wednesday Morning Bible Study @ Pastor Stacy's Study
Oct 5 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am

Wednesday Morning Bible Study/Exploring the Bible Series At 10:00 a.m., beginning September 21 we will begin a three part series entitled Exploring the Bible. Using materials from the Massachusetts Bible Society, we will take up three courses of study. The first, “What is the Bible” will give us a broad overview of the Bible, including chapters on how the Bible is organized, how the collection of Books that comprise the Bible were chosen etc. The second course of study, “Introducing the Old Testament” will help us look at the best-known stories, most influential passages and unforgettable characters that comprise the Old Testament/Hebrew Scriptures. The third course of study, “Introducing the New Testament” will help us learn about Jesus as a man, as a Jewish rabbi and as the Christ of Christian faith. All are welcome and no previous study or familiarity with the Bible is necessary.Exploring the Bible
