Who is Jesus to you? Buddy Christ
In our current worship series, using John Bell's Ten Things They Never Told Me About Jesus, we are exploring facets of the personal life, relationships and ministry of Jesus which are seldom the stuff of preaching or conversation, but which are necessary to be freed from the passive stereotypes which still dominate thinking about Christ.  We find a far larger Jesus than the little bearded figure in children's picture books.

Series runs Jan. 12 – Mar. 2, Sundays at 10.    (For more detail, see here.)
Worship designed for the spiritual-but-not-religious in all of us. Seekers and skeptics welcome.

Adult Studies

Our Winter study (Jan. 12 thru Mar. 2) is Painting the Stars - Science, Religion and an Evolving Faith – Celebrating the communion of science and faith, this study explores the promise of evolutionary Christian spirituality. Featuring over a dozen leading theologians and progressive thinkers, the seven-session DVD study offers a participant guide written by evolutionary theologian Bruce Sanguin and thoughtful discussion among fellow disciples committed to thinking critically and living faithfully.  On Sunday mornings at 8:40, in the St. Marie Parlor.   Please join us.  All are welcome!

Adults meet in the St. Marie Parlor most Sunday mornings during the school year to engage contemporary Christian issues and traditions.
