Small group, Book, & bible studies

While we are still not meeting physically, we are still able to gather together through Zoom to dive into the Bible and explore other forms of literature. Anyone is welcome to join. What can we learn about God during this time? What themes from the Bible speak to our heart? Let's explore together!


Wednesday Bible Study

You can join the Zoom Bible study Wednesday at 3 pm- https://us02web.zoom.us/j/88342866437 

Even though the Bible appears to be a baldly patriarchial document, it's the women in the story who always drive the action. Let’s explore what scripture is trying to teach us about women, power, and the upside-down nature of God’s realm. 

  • November 18- Jezebel (1 Kings 16)
  • November 25- Mary Magdalene (Luke 8:2-3, & Easter stories)
  • December 2- Rebecca (Genesis 24)
  • December 9- Esther (Book of Esther)
  • December 16- Mary, Jesus' Mother (Gospels)
  • December 30- Sarah (Genesis 12)
  • January 6- Deborah (Judges 4)

Book study on "White fragility"

How do we (especially the white 'we') talk about race? How can we engage in dialogue in constructive ways? Together we will work through the book, "White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism" and learn what white fragility is, how it contributes to racial inequity, and how we can do better. 

Each week of the study we will share a recap video on Tuesday at 5:00 pm that shows actual clips from the Zoom study, shares the discussion questions and provides a recap of the content of the book. 



This week we recap chapters 1-4 of the book "White Fragility" and explore key concepts. This week's discussion questions include:    

  • How do you define racial prejudice?    
  • How do you define racial discrimination?    
  • How do you define racism?    
  • How have these played a role throughout your life?

You will hear author Robin DiAngelo's definitions from the book. These are the same questions discussed during the book study. Keep the discussion and the dialogue going by sharing your thoughts in the comments.
