The Bible With and Without Jesus

Saturdays, February 25-June 3, 10-11 am

The Saturday morning discussion group turns to The Bible With and Without Jesus: How Jews and Christians Read the Same Stories Differently by Amy-Jill Levine and Marc Zvi Brettler. Newcomers are welcome!



Theology and Television : The Chosen

Mondays, February 27-April 3, 7-8 pm

The beloved series returns with a focus on The Chosen, the crowdfunded sensation based on Jesus' life. Episodes of The Chosen  can be viewed for free on the Angel Studios website and are also available on most major streaming platforms.



Medieval Religious Drama

Thursdays, February 23-March 30, 6:30-8 pm

In the early 4th century, Christian bishops banned the theater, threatening excommunication of anyone who attended the theater during Holy Week. By the early 10th century, however, drama revived within the church itself, with little plays representing and interpreting the Easter story. Professor Larry Welborn of Fordham University explores the earliest church dramas for insight into the life and faith of Medieval Christians. Selected antiphons and scenes will be presented by readers from the St. Bart's Players. Medieval drama existed to celebrate the human being as loved by God.



Peace Book Club

2nd and 4th Sundays of Each Month, 1:30-3 pm

January 26th is our final session with Norman Wirzba’s This Sacred Life , Chapter 8. We welcome new and curious attendees to the Peace Book Club discussions. Please note that reading of the books though encouraged is not required!   This is a no-stress discussion group where we provide some content when we meet, and then share related ideas, memories and differences in opinions. So, you can come as you are, we are sure you will be stimulated and also find that you have something to share.

Are you looking to live into your faith more fully, to have faith connect more deeply with everyday life? What can the Bible teach us about the world today? Do you ever wonder what God is calling you to do?
