Previewing the Lectionary | Mondays | 11:00 a.m. | Zoom

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 tgobrien@comcast.net.

Theology in Film – WHEN A MAN LOVES A WOMAN | Tuesday | 7:00 p.m. | Zoom

Theology in Film resumes with a discussion of John 2:1-11: Sign of Joy and Suffering on January 11. The story of Cana is a joyful one and it evokes the image and reality of the sacraments of both matrimony and Eucharist. We will pair this scripture with the movie WHEN A MAN LOVES A WOMAN (1994): An airline pilot and his wife are forced to face the consequences of her alcoholism when her addictions threaten her life and their daughter’s safety. While the woman enters detox, her husband must face the truth of his enabling behavior.

Ladies Bible Study | Wednesdays | 10:00 a.m. | Guild Room

This Ladies’ Bible Study meets in the Guild Room Wednesday mornings, 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., during the academic year, with breaks that coincide with school vacations. Participants are primarily ladies with school-age families. We use video-based topical studies with ample time for group discussion – but we also change up our format from time to time! Themes we’ve covered in the past: God’s Grace, Using Words Wisely, The Miracles of Jesus, Ruth, Philippians, “Bible 101.”

All levels of biblical literacy are welcome. We participate in at least two outreach events every year, such as the Easter Homebound Luncheon and Angel Tree project.
