Common Tables

Common Tables is a small group experience of 5-15 people who gather weekly or bi-weekly to share life and faith together as a means to deepen their communion with God, each other, and the world.

 

The first Christians devoted themselves to:

  1. The Apostles' Teachings
  2. The Community
  3. Their Sharied Meals
  4. Their Prayers

 

We hope to follow this model as we journey through life together.

 

Common Tables take place in homes, at church, or in other locations on the day and time that works well for the group. Common Tables is a time and place for: food, reading the scriptures, and prayers.

 

God created us for community!  If you are hungry for a community to plug in to please reach out to Rev. Jared Wilson by clicking below.

 

 

Disciple Bible Study

DISCIPLE is a program of disciplined Bible study aimed at developing strong Christians. 

 

The study gives the Old and New Testaments equal time, emphasizing the wholeness of the Bible as a revelation of God. DISCIPLE draws upon the work of scholars, the personal Bible reading and study of the participant, and dynamic group discussion to aid understanding of the Bible. 

 

DISCIPLE: BECOMING DISCIPLES THROUGH BIBLE STUDY will be offered beginning in September 2022 with Rev. Valarie James facilitating.  Group members may join the class in-person or via Zoom. 

 

When:  Tuesdays at 5:00 p.m.

Where:  Onsite or Via Zoom

Cost: $34 (for student workbook)

Fall 2022 Self-Guided Study

In Signs and Wonders: A Beginner's Guide to the Miracles of Jesus, Biblical scholar Amy-Jill Levine explores selected miracles of Jesus in historical and theological context. For each miracle, she discusses not only how past witnesses would have understood the events, but also how today's readers can draw meaning from Jesus' words and actions. 

 

Register for this study, purchase the book, and receive weekly teaching videos (featuring the author) delivered to you via email.  Work at your own pace!

 

This study will begin the week of September 11, and the first teaching video will be emailed to you on that date.

United Women

in Faith

United Women in Faith seeks to connect and nurture women through Christian spiritual formation, leadership development, creative fellowship, and education so that they can inspire, influence, and impact local and global communities.

 

OUR VISION

We are a powerful, fearless force driven by God's love and united in sisterhood. With a focus on women, children, and youth, we act for justice and transform communities. We face the realisties we see in the world, even when they are not the ones we would like to see. However, our goal is not to bear witness simply to harms but also to God's love by acting boldly to change those harms. 

 

OUR ACTION

Bold action, like faith, takes courage. Our bravery is inspired by God's love and our powerful commitment to improve the lives of women, children, and youth. United Women in Faith works for justice through compassionate service and advocacy to change unfair policies and systems that harm women, children, and youth--from racial and gender injustice to economic inequality, climate issues, and more.
