Do you have to "know it all" or "believe it all" to get something out of reading the Bible? Join Rev. John Fanestil for an 8-week introduction to the scriptures that have guided and informed faithful Christians across two thousand years. This course will be offered at two times - registration required for the online course only:

Thursdays, 12 noon - 1 pm Online (ZOOM meeting)  RSVP here

The class is also offered on:
Wednesdays, 10:30 - 11:30 am in Linder Hall (Pastor's Bible Study) - NO RSVP NEEDED

What if, instead of thinking of the Bible as a single boo, we thought of it instead as "library" of books? If these books were written in many times and places and by many authors, won't we do better to seek inspiration in the diversity of the scriptures, rather than trying to pretend that all the scriptures written with the same content, or with the same intent? Learn how to appreciate the wonderful diversity of the Bible, no matter what your experience of it may be. Whether you've never read the Bible, or have been reading it your whole life, this course will empower you to "check out the Bible."
