We’re grateful for your feedback during the St. David’s Town Hall. We learned that you want to gather in small groups. In response, we’re starting this new group that will gather to read the Bible in community. We’ll work through one of the assigned readings of the day, using various tools that help us understand and connect with the texts in life-giving ways. Co-led by Amy Moehnke and Britton Gregory. Please register for Reading the Bible To-Gather. We look forward to introducing new offerings in the coming months.
