Looking for a place to belong?
The best way to grow in faith and to find community and belonging is to become part of a small group where you get to know each other, support each other, laugh together, and learn together.
Below are our regular groups that meet all year or during the school year, and there’s always room for you!
We also have short-term classes that meet either online or in person. Click EVENTS in the main menu to see the current and upcoming offerings.
Sunday Mornings, September – May, 9:00-9:45 am in Room 211 (Hebrews) on the second floor
Using short term series, we explore the Christian faith through what we believe about the Bible and its texts, through theological questions that have shaped the church, and through discussion of current issues to help us as Christians continue to wrestle and grow in our faith in the modern world. For more information on these short term series, please check the events button below and look for the “Foundations” events.
All Theology Has an Adjective
Theology, by definition, is the study of the nature of God and religious belief. But the problem is that there is no one singular theology, there are lots of them. How we understand the nature of God dramatically impacts how we read the Bible and how it shapes our beliefs; thus every theology has an adjective that goes with it. This five-week series in the Hebrews Sunday School class will explore (briefly) five different contemporary theologies such as: Black, Feminist, Ecological, Process, and Liberation theologies and how they shape Christian beliefs and lives. Join us on Sunday mornings at 9:00am in Hebrews 211 from October 1 – November 5th.
Dinner and a Book
This group gathers twice a year (fall and spring) to read and discuss a book while sharing fellowship and a meal. This fall, the group will be reading together Barbara Brown Taylor’s An Alter in the Woods: A Geography of Faith and meeting at Panera Bread (33rd and Pioneer) at 5:30 pm. to discuss a chapter of the book each week from October 4-Nov. 15th.

This fall, the Dinner and A book group is meeting at Panera Bread (33rd and Pioneers) on Wednesday nights from October 4 – November 15, 2023. This fall we will be reading An Altar in the World: A Geography of Faith by Barbara Brown Taylor. In this book, the author shares how she learned to encounter God far beyond the church walls and how we can learn to do the same. Each Wednesday night we will gather, and talk about that week’s chapter as we have dinner and fellowship together.

October 11 – Chapter 2 (The Practice of Paying Attention – Reverence)
