Seasonal Studies

Wednesday Pastoral Teaching

Wednesday Pastoral Teaching meets on Wednesday mornings at 10:00 a.m. in the Parlor. Rev. Max Vincent is currently leading discussion of A Fellowship of Differents: Showing the World God’s Design for Life Together by Scot McKnight. The church the Apostle Paul talks about is designed by God to be a fellowship of difference—how people differ socially—and differents— how people differ culturally. God did not design the church to be a two-hour experience on Sunday but a mixture of people from all across the map and spectrum: men and women, rich and poor, a mixture of people with varying personalities and tastes. Join us on Wednesday mornings at 10 a.m. in the Parlor as Pastor Max leads us through this study. Books are available for $10 in the church office. The full schedule for this study is listed below.
