Small Groups and Classes for Adults
Our Wednesday Night Study Group, 3M, will study “Words of Life” by Adam Hamilton beginning Wednesday, January 4. In this book of Scripture and inspiration, bestselling author Adam Hamilton brings modern eyes to the most important set of ethics in history – the Ten Commandments. Adam considers the commandments in their historical context, considering the meaning of each commandment in Hebrew, unpacking how Jesus reinterpreted them, and showing how every thou-shalt-not was intended to point to a life-giving “thou shalt.”
This 10-week study will go through Wednesday, March 15 (skipping February 22 , Ash Wednesday). Our class meets 6-7:30 p.m. both in person and on Zoom. Book are available through Cokesbury for $18.29. Contact Judy Oguich (firstname.lastname@example.org) to register and to get the Zoom link.
