The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown Wednesdays, September 6 - November 15 Morning Session: 9:30 am - 11:00 am Evening Session: 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm Facilitator: Kelly Lemens Suggested Donation: $25, includes book
“If you were able to invent something to prevent any weeds from growing in my garden,” a friend said, “you’d be a billionaire!” Isn’t that what everyone wants? Perfection? No “weeds” in our garden of our lives (as if that were even possible)? What if our journey isn’t about getting rid of the “weeds” but rather learning from them? Integrating and transcending imperfections rather than denying and hiding them? World renown social scientist and best-selling author Brene Brown helps us see the “weeds” of our lives as gifts and explore what they have to offer us. Through ten life guideposts, she leads us through practices of understanding our imperfections in order to change our lives and the lives of our family and friends. Join us as we explore our story through the lens of our imperfections and learn how to embrace authenticity and our own sense of worthiness. Please register here.

Bible Study: The General Letters (via Zoom) The General Letters 2nd & 4th Tuesdays, 6:30 – 8:00 pm Beginning September 12 (Join anytime) Facilitator: Kelly Lemens Donation: $25 In addition to the thirteen letters attributed to Paul and the Letter to the Hebrews, the New Testament contains seven other letters. Unlike the letters attributed to Paul which were directed to a particular local church, these letters are addressed to a more general audience. Interestingly, most of these letters were at one time among the disputed books of the New Testament. However, after extensive questioning and debate, all seven were admitted into the canon of Scripture. Join us as we read, study and discuss these letters which hold many nuggets of wisdom for us all. Please register here. NOTE: If you prefer to pay by cash or check in person, please register by emailing Kellyhere.
The Sermon on the Mount Bible Study (Zoom only)
Thursday's beginning September 14 through November 16 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm Facilitator: Kelly Lemens Suggested Donation: $25, includes book
The Sermon on the Mount has long been considered to be the core of Jesus’ teaching. In three chapters recorded in the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus spells out his vision for God’s people, sketching an image of what the Kingdom of God is really like. Using metaphor and analogy, and drawing from cultural nuances of the times, these passages can be confusing and difficult for modern day seekers to understand much less embody. Join us as we explore these teachings through the lens of Emmet Fox, one of the most influential spiritual leaders of the twentieth century. As we study his book, The Sermon on the Mount: The Key to Success in Life, we will be challenged in the traditional teachings of The Sermon that we grew up with. We are also invited into a new way of understanding these teachings and integrating them into our lives so that we truly experience their transforming power. (This book study will also read through the Scriptures; a Bible would be helpful to have on hand (no specific version needed)) Image: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Sermon-on-the-mount-tiffany.jpg Please register here.
