Encountering the Lectionary

Encountering the Lectionary – Bible Study


Sunday mornings at 11:15 am through November 21.


You don’t need to know anything about the Bible to participate! Let's journey through the texts we use in worship. We'll encounter scripture in a different way each week with a mixture of academic study, reading scripture as prayer, devotional reading. We'll share four texts for the following, one of which will be the focus of the worship service. 


The usual format will include a 10-minute theme presentation, 15 minutes for reading scripture, and 35 minutes for discussion. Participants are welcome to join for a single week or several sessions as their interest and time permits. contact the office for the Zoom link.
