Until we can meet regularly in person our church will be having most of our opportunities to gather, connect and grow over Zoom. Below is a list of what is happening each week.
The current Monday Night Bible study led by Pastor Kent on Monday nights begins Monday, July 27th. This study spends five weeks in the series, In the Dust of the Rabbi, by Ray Vander Laan. Below is the study description:
Do you ever feel like you are a follower of Jesus, but from a distance? "Follow a Rabbi, drink in his words, and be covered with the dust of his feet," says the ancient Jewish proverb. In Jesus' day, disciples followed their Rabbi so closely that they would be covered with the dust kicked up by the Rabbi's feet. Come, discover how you can get dusty and be closer to your Rabbi, Jesus, by doing what he does.
Five interactive sessions take you on a journey to the land and culture in which the disciples learned to follow Jesus.

This study, Color of Compromise, is led by Sheila James (SPC Elder) and Pastor Andrew and begins on Wednesday, July 22nd. Each week we'll watch a 16-26 minute video and have discussion for the rest of the time. Below is the study description:
In August of 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his famous "I Have a Dream" speech, calling on all Americans to view others not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. Yet King included another powerful word, one that is often overlooked. Warning against the "tranquilizing drug of gradualism," King emphasized the fierce urgency of now, the need to resist the status quo and take immediate action. King's call to action, first issued over fifty years ago, is relevant for the church in America today. Churches remain racially segregated and are largely ineffective in addressing complex racial challenges. In The Color of Compromise Video Study, Jemar Tisby takes us back to the root of this injustice in the American church, highlighting the cultural and institutional tables we have to flip in order to bring about progress between black and white people.
Tisby provides a unique survey of American Christianity's racial past, revealing the concrete and chilling ways people of faith have worked against racial justice. Understanding our racial history sets the stage for solutions, but until we understand the depth of the malady we won't fully embrace the aggressive treatment it requires. Given the centuries of Christian compromise with bigotry, believers today must be prepared to tear down old structures and build up new ones. This video study provides an in-depth diagnosis for a racially divided American church and suggests ways to foster a more equitable and inclusive environment among God's people.
