The canonical Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John speak in clear, powerful, and distinct voices of the life, ministry, teaching, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. They also reveal to us the convictions and concerns of the different times and communities in which they were written. Rooted in unique and specific experiences of Jesus, the Gospels proclaim for all time the Good News of God in Christ. In each of the Gospels we hear words of inspiration, comfort, challenge, and hope both for us as individuals and for the Church, the whole Body of Christ. Through their eloquent, difficult words, we meet again the incarnate Word: Jesus our Lord.
This Lent, as part of our Gospel Study Series, join The Rev’d Dane Boston as we take a closer look at the Gospel according to St. Luke. Beginning Sunday, February 17, this study will have THREE weekly meetings, each identical in form and content: Sunday evenings, 7:00 to 8:30 pm and Wednesday at lunchtime, 12:00 to 1:30 pm, and Thursday mornings, 8:30 - 10:00 am. Participants are asked to choose a regular meeting, but are invited to “make-up” missed classes by attending the other meeting. In order to facilitate conversation and discussion, each meeting time will be limited to twelve participants.Click here for detailed syllabus.

Education for Ministry
Ever wanted to join a book group? Interested in history? Love to read? Curious? If so, you’ve been missing an opportunity: EFM, the coed book group with a twist. In Bible Study you learn what to believe and why; EFM allows you to explore your faith through history, literature, shared experiences and lively discussions - it takes a global look at the world and life in general and, within the group discussions, applies it to every day life. Worried about a four year commitment? Don’t be - just think of it like a lease - you can renew it or not. No educational criteria, no experience necessary, EFM is user friendly! Our two classes, on Monday evenings at 6:30 pm (contact Lynne Jordal Martin), and on Thursday mornings at 9:00 am (contact Darby Cartun), are open to everyone - you can even bring a friend. So sign up to have fun, make new friends, and explore your faith.
The Spirituality Project
Wednesdays(monthly) 7:00 - 8:30 pm, Temple Sholom
The Spirituality Project is an interfaith discussion group hosted by the Sholom Center focusing on the experience of God in our lives. Once a month, on a Wednesday evening, the group will gather in the Church or Synagogue for an hour to engage in a guided conversation on issues of personal spirituality. We will be discussing our own experiences (or lack thereof) of the Divine, while not convincing others in the group the proper or correct way to think about God. Atheists and agnostics are welcome, as long as they are interested in discussing spiritual issues. The goal of the group is to allow important conversations to happen in a warm and welcoming environment. Ideally, all who participate will develop a greater God consciousness/awareness. Please contact The Rev’d Jenny Owen,firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.
