Upcoming Events ...
"Making a Killing: Guns, Greed and the NRA"
PLEASE NOTE THE DATE CHANGE FROM FRIDAY, JULY 13TH TO FRIDAY, AUGUST 10TH! (The church's air conditioning has gone out and no one wants to watch a film in a sauna!) We apologize for the inconvenience, but want everyone to be comfortable during the screening.
Friday, August 10th at 7:00 p.m. - A free screening of the film, "Making a Killing: Guns, Greed and the NRA." "Making a Killing" tells the stories of how guns, and the billions made off of them, affect the lives of everyday Americans. It features personal stories from people across the country who have been affected by gun violence, including survivors and victims' families. The film exposes how powerful gun companies and the NRA are resisting responsible legislation for the sake of profit - and thereby putting people in danger. The film looks into gun tragedies that include unintentional shootings, domestic violence, suicide, mass shootings, and trafficking - and what we can do to put an end to this profit-driven crisis. You are invited to engage in a brief discussion after the film. To reserve your free ticket, please CLICK HERE.
Monday, July 16th through Monday, August 20th at 6:30 p.m. - "Short Stories by Jesus, The Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi,” small group experience will begin. Jesus knew how to tell a story. He knew that in order to get his message across he needed to relate to the people who gathered to listen—first century Jews—who lived in a very different world than the one in which we live today. In Short Stories by Jesus, author Amy-Jill Levine takes you back in time and explains how original audiences understood Jesus’ parables. You’ll learn how new interpretations of the parables continue to challenge and provoke contemporary readers two thousand years later. Each Monday during the study, we will start the evening at 6:30 p.m. with a potluck meal together, and then start the study around 7:00 p.m. Books are $10.00 each, but no one will be turned away due to a lack of funds.
