January 4, 11, 18, 25, "The Four Loves of the Christian Life"

Love is the core search of humanity. As we study the four words for love in C. S. Lewis’ The Four Loves and reflect on biblical understandings, how can we deepen our own growth in love—in our relations, our own self-awareness, and with God?  Bring a Bible and there will be handouts.

February 1, 8, 15, 22March 1, 8, 15, 22 "Learning Prayer: Pilgrimage for Non-Experts"

A journey in personal growth and prayer. We will study together in scripture and using the book Encountering God in the Prayers of Others we will introduce practices of prayer and personal devotion to help you grow in your spiritual life.

April 5, 12, 19, 26May 3, 10, 17, 24: Death, Dying and the Hope of Heaven

Christian hope has been attacked as “escapist” and delusional. Yet the Bible proclaims the hope of eternal life. What does the Bible say and what can we depend on as we face the end of life?  A lively study in scripture and theology that is deeply personal and practical.
