Advent Book Study, Beginning December 3
Join Pastor Laura for an Advent book study beginning on Thursday evening, December 3, as we read together While We Wait: Living the Questions of Advent by Mary Lou Redding. During this unusual Advent season, we invite you to embrace the slower pace and enter into the deep questions of the Christmas story. Somewhat surprisingly, Tamar, Ruth, Mary, Zechariah, Elizabeth, and the Magi ask questions that resonate with contemporary Christians during this season. Join us as we explore this well-known story from new perspectives. What are the questions you bring to God this season? While We Wait offers an in-depth biblical interpretation each week along with daily prompts for reflection, journaling, and breath prayers. Each week we will discuss our experiences with the book along with our own questions of the season. If you are interested in joining this book study, please contact Pastor Laura by November 30 to sign up. You may purchase While We Wait here or here.

The Saturday Morning Bible Study is in the midst of a new study with primary focus on answering the question: What is the gospel from Jesus’ perspective? Scott Smith, a retired American Baptist pastor, will look at all four gospels, focusing on how Jesus defines the “good news” in his teaching.
