LIVING CREATION  -  Sundays, 9:30-10am
An intergenerational, experiential Bible study on the creation story (Genesis 1)
Each of the following Sundays at 9:30am there will be a short reading from Genesis and Annie will give a few words about the theme.  After that, we’ll step into each creation day in a unique way.  This is an intergenerational, living Bible study, so there will be something for everyone.  And most of all, we hope it will give us all a chance to relax, learn and have fun together!!  

Aug 9/Day 5: Land, animals and humans—nothing before church, lunch/ zoo trip after church.


Aug 16/Day 6: — Connie McNutt, master gardener, will lead us in a discussion on biodiversity; the kids will have a chance to dig in the dirt and everyone will explore the community garden.


Aug 23/Day 7: — Jurgen Ermel will be back with his bees and hopefully some honey. If you missed his presentation the first time, you won’t want to miss this one!

Sermon Series
The series “Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism” will cover some of the hot-button issues of the day with a look at what the Bible does and does not say about them.  This series allows us to take the Bible seriously but not literally, and assumes God and the Bible can handle our intellectual pursuits.  Don’t check your brain at the door.
