HYBRID FORMAT: Foundation is offered as a hybrid study — both in person and via Zoom. In-person attendees join the discussion in Fellowship Hall with masks and physical distancing; preregistration is required to observe safe capacity limits. Participants are always welcome to join from home via Zoom, and our Zoom moderator will relay at-home comments to the on-site group, and summarize answers and scripture look-ups.
FOCUS: Pastor Kevin Thomson and Pastor Tanner Wade team-teach our online Foundation Bible Class, which gets its name from the truth that Christ is our foundation in all things. The study focuses on exploring how our foundation in Christ transforms who we are, and how we live our lives. Open discussion and questions from participants are actively encouraged. Previous study topics have included: change, community, the Sabbath, Godly leadership, Heaven, gossip, angels and demons, wrestling with God, Bible translations, comparative religion, church/state, and mercy.

DATES: Acts of the Apostles: Oct. 28, 2020 - May 27, 2021
REGISTER online, or by calling the church office
FORMAT: In person + online via Zoom
Join us in person or via Zoom for an in-depth study of the Acts of the Apostles, the story of the spread of the Gospel in spite of internal struggles and threats from outside the Church. Acts provides a crucial understanding of the way God chooses to guide His Church, even now. Today, many say that our secular and increasingly hostile culture is resembling those times more and more. We need what this book brings! We need to learn again what it means to be a follower of "The Way" in our worldly culture. These are the "last days," and the Holy Spirit is still stirring the hearts of people like us.
On Wednesday mornings from 9:00-10:30 a.m., men and women participate in separate small groups, with lectures in the church Sanctuary.
On Thursday evenings from 7:00-8:30 p.m., men and women gather in a single small group, closing with a recording/video of the Wednesday morning pastor-led lecture.
Masks/distancing: Due to COVID-19 health guidelines, we will be wearing masks and observing physically-distanced seating. In compliance with safety measures, we will disinfect the pews between the opening and the closing lecture. The pastors' closing lectures will discuss questions from the individual lessons, and will be videotaped for those who prefer to avoid larger on-site gatherings.
