Encounter Jesus virtual connection hour

Sunday mornings, 10:00 am via Zoom video conference

A virtual Connection Hour class began recently with a study called "Encounter Jesus." Participants watch the teaching video by Rev. Carolyn Moore one week, then spend the next week doing the related reading and reflection exercises in the study guide.


The class meets via Zoom video conference on Sundays at 10 a.m., for a discussion led by Rachel Coleman. (Many thanks to the Pathfinders Class for being willing to try this and for welcoming other participants into the experiment!).  Contact Pastor Randy at: for Zoom meeting ID and password.

Eleven 28

Non-traditional format: Online and face-to-face

Do you find yourself longing to be taught by Jesus but simply unable to attend a weekly face-to-face Bible study? Maybe it’s the demands of work or travel; perhaps it’s the collapse-in-utter-exhaustion reality at the end of a day of parenting. “Eleven28” is a Bible study in non-traditional format, designed to provide you with structured, daily individual engagement with God’s Word, on whatever schedule works for you, combined with other elements: safe, supportive interaction with other participants in a closed Facebook group, weekly FB Live sessions with the facilitator, and monthly F2F gatherings (pending social distancing).

"The Epic of Eden-Understanding the Old Testament" Bible Study: From the Epic of Eden series, the Old Testament of the Bible can feel like a junk drawer--a disorganized collection of important stuff we don't want to lose yet don't know what to do with. From the Pentateuch to patriarchs and from kings to prophets, it can feel like a puzzle we've tried to put together but wind up putting back in the box because it's too complicated. 

The most recent study began on August 10. The ladies watch teaching videos by Dr. Sandra Richter and do the study guide exercises on their own. Monday evenings at 9 p.m. Rachel does a "deep dive" on some aspect of the previous week's lesson, via Facebook Live.
