Weekday/weeknight offerings:

Thursday Morning Bible Study
Every week, Thursday, 10 AM to 11:30 AM
Come and join a group of enthusiastic parishioners eager to know and understand the Word of God. Our Bible Study is open to men and women of all ages - we meet every Thursday morning in the Parish Hall to discuss, reflect and learn from each other as we study God's word. Each week we come away with a deeper understanding of Scripture— an understanding that increases our faith.  New members are always welcome - you don’t have to “know anything” before you begin! For further information, contact Ann Port.

Lectio Divina and reading the Sunday Lectionary
Please join us on Wednesdays, beginning May 10, 2017, from 1 to 2 PM in the Remix Room for a study of the upcoming weekly lectionary gospel reading using the lectio divina (divine reading) format. This style enables us to develop a close, personal relationship with Jesus as we listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying to each one of us through the Word. You can find the weekly readings here.  No preparation is necessary - each week's study will stand on its own, which means you can attend as you have time!  Please feel free to contact Audrey Bennett for further information. All are welcome - bring your friends!

Theology on Tap 
Please join us outside of church for a friendly get together we call "Theology on Tap" where we engage in lively discussion about books, and what it means to be a Christian in our day to day lives.  On Wednesday, April 26th, we will be starting discussion of a new book, Leaving Church: A Memoir of Faith by The Rev. Barbara Brown Taylor.  Reading the book is not a requirement to come to the group, we simply use it as a jumping off point for the discussions.  We will be meeting at Talebu Coffee & Wine Café (2095 N Alma School Rd #2, Chandler, AZ 85224 – NE Corner of Warner & Alma School) at 6pm on April 26th.  We try to meet every other week.  If you have questions or want to confirm our next get together, please contact Shawn Rutledge.
