The Wednesday Women's Bible Study will be reading Short Stories by Jesus:  The Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi by Amy Jill-Levine this winter. This is an exploration of the historical background and spiritual meaning of Jesus' parables by one of the foremost Jewish biblical scholars, who visited our church to give a series of lectures in 2009.

The group is facilitated by Pastor Anna, Maggie Roth, and Leah Ostwald. Books are available at the meeting. Can't make it every week? Drop-ins are welcome. Childcare is provided. Cost of the book is $14 and copies are available in the church office or at the Wednesday meeting.

Messy Church is a new kind of service on the second Sunday of the month for parents and children to share. There will be a time to make crafts as a family, a short (and lively) time of gathering, and a family friendly lunch. This time will be about building community along with thinking about that greater power that is creator and love of all. It takes place in the church gym. Please register in advance so that we can prepare food and supplies.
