BOOK OF ISAIAH: Wednesdays from 7:00 – 8:00pm… We will look at the historical background out of which the book comes, the three main divisions of the book, and the very real probability that there are a minimum of two, and perhaps three main writers of the book. We will look at the meaning of Isaiah for the times for which it was written, and also dig into its meaning for today.                                  Leader: Herb Hash    

ESL TEACHER TRAINING: Tuesdays 6:30 – 7:30 on zoom starting 10/19/21.
Join us for three weeks of discussion and storytelling as we prepare to relaunch our long-standing tradition of offering ESL to the community.  To prepare, we will share past experiences, explore intercultural fluency, and look into the scriptural practice of hospitality. No prior experience is necessary, only the willingness to make friends and to be curious. 
Leaders: Trivia Eggers and Alice McRae.
 
WOMEN’S STUDY:  On Mondays at 7:00pm… A gathering of women who desire to study God’s word together, pray for one another and grow together in Christ and as friends will meet to look to Jesus as our model for hospitality. Discover how He lived a life full of interruptions, yet always welcomed people and invited them to follow Him. Learn to replace cultural expectations with biblical hospitality to create a legacy of invitation and reflect Jesus through simple acts of service.                                           
Leaders: Krystal Wilson, Mary Beth Walker, Sharon Carlton
