This is a course with a warning label: All who enter here, expect to be transformed.

Inter-Parish Adult Bible Workbench

Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon

Reading Between the Lines meets Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. in the Wickham Rm. (on break Dec. 23 & 30) We believe in stories. Stories are how we make sense of our own experience and learn about the experience of others. We are surrounded by stories in conversations and through the media. The Bible is full of stories too. They speak to us of what is best and worst, hopeful and despairing, creative and destructive about human life and the experience of the sacred in its midst. Join us as we discover ourselves in the Bible Story.

Fee is $10/quarter for printing and curriculum subscription.
