An African American folk saying claims that our God can make a way out of no way.  In this six-week series we'll explore some familiar Hebrew stories of despair and deliverance.  Noah, Abraham, Joseph, and Moses each persevered with God's help amid almost unimaginable challenges.  This series, offered in conjunction with Darkwood Brew, is for the times in your life when there seems to be no way out, when the pace, the plans, and the purpose of life make you feel fenced in.  And it's for the times when God's covenant cuts through – offering a way out.  Through the narratives of these biblical archetypes, we come to experience our own stories as more hopeful than we might have ever imagined.

Follow the Way out of No Way series with daily readings and reflections at Living in God's Story and a weekly podcast from Darkwood Brew on Wednesdays at 7:45pm.
More detail can be found on our Worship Series page.

Having concluded our exploration of “Science, Religion and an Evolving Faith”, Painting the Stars, back in June,  we are taking a break for the Summer.

In the Fall, we are offering Covenant Bible StudyCOVENANT is an in-depth group Bible study in which people read and discuss the Bible together, learning how to love God – and each other – better.  Covenant represents a relationship – a living, breathing conversation. 

Two sessions are now forming:  beginning October 5th, a Sunday morning class with Tom; and beginning October 14th, a house-based evening class with Evie and Rick.  Join us on the journey.  Contact the office to register your interest, and be part of the conversation!
