Wednesday Morning Book Study: "A Bigger Table: Building Messy, Authentic, and Hopeful Spiritual Community" by John Pavlovitz; 10:00-11:30

Beginning on January 11, 2023, we will begin a Book Study on: "A Bigger Table: Building Messy, Authentic, and Hopeful Spiritual Community" by John Pavlovitz

A Bigger Table invites readers to envision a church that is big enough for everyone by holding up a mirror to the modern church and speaking clearly on issues at the heart of the Christian Community: LGBTQ inclusion, gender equality, racial tensions, global concerns, and theological shifts. At the end of each class we have a time of prayer and Holy Communion. Come join us. All are welcome.

We meet In-person at St. John’s, downstairs in our Conference Room (please park around back). We also meet on ZOOM. Here is the ZOOM Link:
