Weekly Zoom Classes

Please join us by using the following Zoom link for all classes:

Previewing the Lectionary | Friday’s | 10:00 a.m. | Zoom
No classes from October 18 to November 10.

Join Canon Tom O’Brien for a one-hour, open-ended, interactive and freewheeling discussion of the Bible readings for next Sunday. No Bible expertise is needed, just a willingness to discuss and learn. Each session is a “stand alone” session, so you can join any week. Having a Bible at hand to follow the readings is a plus, but not essential. For more information contact Canon O’Brien at

Bethesda Movie Club

Please join us by using the following Zoom link for all classes:

A FEW GOOD MEN | October 18 | 7:00 p.m. | Zoom

The Bethesda Movie Club continues with a discussion of Luke 18:9-14: Humbled and Exalted on October 18. The parable of the Pharisee and the tax collector is one that everyone can identify with because we are all tempted to live a double standard: to be self-righteous and look down at “sinners” all the while knowing we are sinners like everyone else. We will pair this scripture with the movie A FEW GOOD MEN (1992): When cocky military lawyer Lt. Daniel Kaffee and his co-counsel, Lt. Cmdr. JoAnne Galloway, are assigned to a murder case, they uncover a hazing ritual that could implicate high-ranking officials such as shady Col. Nathan Jessep.

REGARDING HENRY | October 25 | 7:00 p.m. | Zoom

The Bethesda Film Club continues with a discussion of Luke 19:1-10: Salvation Has Come to This House on October 25. Zacchaeus unexpectedly discovers Jesus and experiences conversion. We will pair this scripture with the movie REGARDING HENRY (1991): Respected lawyer, Henry Turner survives a convenience-store shooting only to find he has lost his memory, and has serious speech and mobility issues. After also losing his job—where he no longer ‘fits in’—his loving wife and daughter give him all their love and support.
