Bible Study is held on Zoom Wednesday evenings at 7:00pm. We have time to catch up and chat from 7:00-7:15, study from 7:15-8:00 and close with Compline or Vespers. All are Welcome! Each Bible Study is interdisciplinary in nature — including art, architecture, music and history as well as textual analysis.
Current Study: Genesis – Join us as we read through Genesis together, focusing on partnerships and relationships. This is an interdisciplinary study featuring artwork, music and poetry alongside scripture to inform our discussion.
