“The Way” – A Bible Study
by Adam Hamilton

Wednesdays 6:30 – 7:30 PM

We have begun a new study “The Way: Walking in the Footsteps of Jesus” in which we will begin each lesson with a video set in an appropriate place in the Holy Land, and follow Jesus to these places. The focus is on the life and teachings of Jesus, drawing on history, archaeology, and the geography of the Holy Land.

Preparing for each week:
January 13 – Read the Prologue: John the Baptist and Jesus, AND
      Chapter 1 – Baptism and Temptation
      (Jordan River and the Wilderness)
January 20 – Chapter 2 – The Healing Ministry (Capernaum)
January 27 – Chapter 3 – Proclaiming the Kingdom (The Mountains)
February 3 – Chapter 4 – Calming the Storm (The Sea of Galilee)
February 10 – Chapter 5 – Sinners, Outcast and the Poor (Samaria)

Beginning on February 17 we will start our Lenten Study: “The Last Week” by Marcus Borg and John Crossan.

Here is the link to use to join the ZOOM class on an internet enabled device, smartphone or computer - https://greaternw.zoom.us/j/93573921173 - We will be able to screen share if there is a video, so calling in without video gives you less advantage, though you could still hear the video, and would be welcome to listen in.

First Sunday – EVENING VESPERS
A short communion service

One thing that we miss when our worship is not live is communion.  Join Pastor Karla on the first Sunday of each month, NEXT SERVICE on February 7 at 7:00 PM for a LIVE communion service on zoom . 

 One thing you need to note!  You’ll need to plan ahead enough to bring your own bread and beverage!

TUESDAY “COFFEE HOUR”

Want to see and talk to other church friends (and the Pastor) in person?  Even though we are physically distanced we can be socially and spiritually close.  Follow the link on Tuesdays at 10:00 AM for “Coffee Hour.”  If you miss the sharing that happens during the Prayers of the People, or if you miss the “Coffee Hour” that would normally happen weekly after worship – perhaps this can help replace those.  We share what’s happening in our lives, joys, concerns, and we pray together.    SEE MORE WITH LINKS TO THE ZOOM CALL
