Down at the Cross:
Interpretations of the Crucifixion of Jesus

Sundays @ 11:30am
February 18 – March 18
1st Floor – Chapel
Led by Rev. Jason Alspaugh

Join us this Lent as we explore a variety of interpretations of the crucifixion by theologians and pastors such as Rowan Williams, James Cone, Samuel Wells, and others.  Since the crucifixion of Jesus, people have (to borrow the words of John Donne) tried to “reckon what it did and meant.”  Together we will talk about some of those reckonings, and also what the meanings/messages of the cross are for us today.


Essential Oils and the Bible

Sundays @ 11:30am
February 18 – March 11
1st Floor – Choir Room
Led by Diane Charron

This four-week study seeks to explore the uses and symbolism of certain oils referenced in Scripture, many of which are now commonly described as “essential oils.”  Whether for cleansing, healing, or for ritual practices, you might be surprised to find just how often such oils are mentioned throughout the Bible.
