Advent Study: Experiencing Christmas
Sundays • November 26, December 3, 10, 17 (Zoom Only) • 4 – 6 pm
Led By Rev. Jerry
Everything seems different at the end of the year. We put lights on our houses to dispel the growing darkness, Christmas music floods local radio stations, apple cider and cranberry sauce are again on the menu, and wrapping paper and tape are always ready. Things just look, smell, and taste differently during the Advent and Christmas season, and these differences are a sign to us that God is about to do something radical and different. Christmas is when God surrounded the divine with senses of his own. During this four-session study, we will join Rev. Matt Rawle and explore the sights and sounds of the season and ask ourselves: What signs do you see during the Advent and Christmas season that point you to the divine?
Understanding The New Testament

Tuesdays • On Zoom • 10:30 am
Video Lecture series led by Dr. David Brakke
This study starts at the beginning — with 1 Thessalonians and Paul. Why? Paul’s letters were written first! Mark, the gospels, other letters and Revelation will follow.
This will help us better see the diversity and distinct perspectives found in the New Testament over time.
Thursdays • January 25, February 1, 8 • Zoom • 6:30 pm
Led by Dr. Robert Hunt
Whether we know it or not Artificial Intelligence in some form is woven into our daily lives. It is at the forefront of medical and scientific research, it is built into our internet search engines and the computer applications we use daily, and it is behind the ubiquitous chatbots we encounter both on websites and answering services. In this short course, we’ll discover the basis of contemporary AI and why its power and influence have been increasing exponentially over the last 2 years. We’ll examine briefly its positive uses, and also its dangers. Finally, we’ll look at how it is beginning to change the way we understand our own humanity and the challenges that offers to the Christian witness.
