“Scripture Preview”
Do you want more time to delve into the Scriptures we use at Sunday worship?

Following the second worship service each week, you get a sneak peak of the Scriptures we’ll use in the following week’s worship service at a small discussion group, led by various competent facilitators.

The group will be open for questions, personal reactions, and varied perspectives on the readings. Snacks and drinks are provided.

All are welcome to attend, so please join in! We’ll meet at 12:15 PM in the church library on Sundays. Contact Pastor Karla for more info. See you there!
