The Trinity & Your Transformation

The Divine Dance introduces a new way to explore and celebrate our relationship with God. In this study, Richard Rohr and Mike Morrell present an alternative to seeing God as an angry, distant, moral scorekeeper or a Supernatural Santa Claus. By exploring the concept of the Trinity, we find a God who is all-vulnerable, all-embracing and all-given. We are invited to participate in the dance of this transformative relationship. (includes book and weekly videos)

"The Divine Dance sketches a beautiful choreography for a life well-lived. In our joy or our pain, true life is always relational, a flow, a dance (And was always meant to be.)" -Bono, U2

Tuesday Knights Men’s Group - John

We all long for a full, rich, satisfying life. But how do we fill up the empty places in our souls? How can we quench our thirst for something deeper, more lasting, more meaningful? This study of John urges you to take a fresh look at Jesus. Here is the opportunity to establish―or renew―your faith in the One who offers true meaning, true belonging and true life.

The Change that Changes Everything

This class will study ways to bring back the mystery of Christian experience. Using Richard Rohr's book, The Naked Now, along with video excerpts from his seminars, we will move past the limitations of either/or thinking and reclaim the experience of interacting with the Holy Spirit. Rohr reveals how many of the hidden truths of Christianity have been misunderstood or lost. Instead of interpreting the Christian truths through rational thought, Rohr looks at ways to rediscover them through the eyes of the mystics - those who place experiencing God personally as their number one priority.

Shift, The Community

A Bible study open to all young adults. No sign ups, no homework, no fees. Designed to fit into your life, it's the chance all young adults have to come together, get into Scripture, and connect with one another. Casual and big, we take time to read the Scripture together and through group discussion discover what we can learn about God, about ourselves, and about the relationship between those two. Bring your friends, invite someone new, or meet up with others there. Join us afterward for dinner at a local restaurant as well.

7:00 pm, The Basement

Old Testament/New Testament Overview

A 90-Minute Overview of the Old Testament

Want to know more about the Old Testament? Want to have a better understanding of the 'big picture', the main storyline and how it all fits together? If so, then this is the class for you.  We will walk you through the Old Testament from the creation story in Genesis up to the time of Jesus. This will include the so called 'lost years' of the Bible, the period of time after the narrative comes to a close with Malachi when the stage is set for the birth of Jesus. This is the period in which the books of the Apocrypha were written. We will cover the main narrative, the major characters of the Old Testament, and how the books of the Old Testament fit into this story.

A 90-Minute Overview of the New Testament

Want to know more about the New Testament? Want to have a better understanding of the 'big picture', the main storyline and how it all fits together? If so, then this is the class for you. We will walk you through the New Testament; including an overview of Jesus' ministry, an overview of Paul and his ministry in Acts, and Paul's letters, which cover the first three years of our faith's existence. Then we will touch briefly on each of the books of the New Testament and how they fit into this story.
