We learn from... the topic... the presenter... the scripture... the experience... and each other.
On Wednesdays, we come together from different backgrounds and with a variety of experiences; each bringing a story or history to our gathering. In comfort, we share our own thoughts, beliefs, and interpretations because as American Baptist we take seriously the right of “soul freedom” and freedom of expression. Our Wednesday studies include:
- Bible Study
- Spiritual Formation
- Taizé Worship
- Book/Discussion Topics
- Biblical Archeology
- Guest Speakers/Professors
- Intergenerational Learning/Activities
On our schedule:
Join us for this time of reflection and mediation with scripture, melodic song, and silence.
Brown Bag Fellowship at 5:30 PM in the Parlor
Meditation at 6:00 PM
Service at 6:30 PM
Childcare is available by reservation for all Wednesday Programs
by contacting Janet Richardson in advance.
