Rethinking Our Understanding of the Bible

First Wednesdays Project: Rethinking Our Understanding of the Bible

Our New Member Class is morphing into an Adult Education Class. Come and be a part of it! It is an invitation to grow together in the knowledge and understanding of the faith.

When? Every first Wednesday of the month at 7:00PM. First class on May 1.

Where? In the church office on 9 Bayard Street

What for? To read a groundbreaking book that will reshape our understanding of the Bible perhaps just as deeply as the discovery of Galileo Galilei that the sun does not circle around the earth.

The book is written by Jim Brownson, one of our denomination’s seminary professors. It promises help in the RCA’s discussion on homosexuality. It will, however, be interesting for everyone who struggles with understanding the Bible in our time.

What do I bring? Many of us will have bought the book already, but this is not a condition for the first session on may 1.
