  • Pastor Nikki’s Bible Study - On Thursdays at 7 p.m. Pastor Nikki is hosting a Bible Study via zoom on the book of Genesis, beginning with chapter 12 and the call of Abram. Entitled “Genesis: Relational and Family Dynamics,” we will be looking at God’s promise to God’s people as it travels through 4 generations of one family, and all the peculiar ways they (and we) try to avoid God’s promise and plan. The Zoom link is, and we will also meet in person at pre-determined times. Please contact Pastor Nikki if you have questions and are interested, or simply join us! Genesis Bible Study Outline

  • Sailboat Church - Helping Your Church Rethink Its Mission and Practice by Joan S. Gray - A congregational read.

    September 24
    :  With Jesus (and His Family) in Galilee  (with help from the 5th Gospel)  The question was: “Can Anything Good Come out of Nazareth?” (Nezer=offshoot)   All historians agree that Our Lord was “Jesus of Nazareth.”  But archaeology and epigraphy--the 5th Gospel--further inform us that Jesus was in fact a “Natzorean”—a resident of a recently founded town (Natzorath)  peopled by proud offshoots of the old royal Davidic Family back from the Babylonian exile.  They were apparently not quite ready to to find the Messiah among themselves.    Power-point presentation.

    October 1:
      The 12 Apostles: “The Sent-Out Ones”  Disciples and Apostles are not necessarily the same.  Who were the original Twelve Apostles whom Jesus called to be with Him (the Gospels apparently  differ) , and what do the Gospels, Church history, Apocrypha, and tradition tell us about their mission and their experiences before and after the Resurrection.    Power-point presentation and film excerpt.
