New Guerrilla Groups Forming
1. Listening Team
As part of our commitment to be a listening congregation, we will listen, share and learn, and empower others to keep listening, sharing and learning. Our text will be The Power of Listening: Building Skills for Mission and Ministry by Lynne Baab.
2. The Challenge of Paul
Explore the historical Paul, his letters and his ministry in these DVD sessions featuring renowned scholar and historian John Dominic Crossan.
3. New! Emerging Church
On the 500th anniversary of the Protest Reformation last October, we talked about the possibility that the Church is undergoing a new reformation, focused on Jesus’s teachings of nonviolence, love, healing and transformation instead of rigid dogma and doctrine.
Some call this movement Emerging Church. Through reading, listening and discussion we’ll explore the Emerging Church and its implications for being Church in the 21st century.
