Sundays at 10:00 a.m. | In-person in the Parish House Conference Room or online via Zoom
An adult Bible Study group meets most Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m. We use a hybrid approach with some joining via Zoom and others coming to the Conference Room along with attending either the 9:00 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. worship service. The group is studying the structure, audience, and themes of the Gospel of Luke. Conversations typically explore the connections with the Sunday lectionary lessons and sermons.
To attend the Bible Study class by Zoom, please contact Jack Reiffer, who leads the class, for the link.
Thursday, March 3, at 6:45 p.m. | Online via Zoom
The St. John’s Book group will meet for a virtual discussion of Peter Godwin’s When A Crocodile Eats the Sun: A Memoir of Living in Africa. Godwin is an author, journalist and former human rights lawyer who grew up in Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe. One of the Goodreads commenters calls it “A very powerful and haunting and heartbreaking memoir, a story both about the collapse of Zimbabwe into dictatorship and chaos since the late 1990s and about identity and belonging.”
