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
  • Videos
  • Biblical Archeology
  • Guest Speakers/Professors
  • Intergenerational Learning/Activities
