Sundays at 11:15am in the Holly Street Garden (or the Fireside Room in case of inclement weather)

The Bible can be intimidating and confusing whether you’re new to scripture or a long-time Bible reader. Bible Basics will look at not only practical questions like where the Bible came from and who wrote these stories, but also give a birds-eye view of the overall story and how some of the familiar and pivotal stories fit into that narrative. With a combination of big picture and deep dives, these sessions are for anyone, newcomer or longtime member, who wants to grow in their understanding and appreciation of these formative texts. Each session is stand alone, so attend as many or as few as work for you. Led by Dr. Judy Stack.
