Wednesday Morning Study: Atlas of the Heart:
Mapping Meaningful Connection and the Language of Human Experience
On May 4 at 10 a.m. in the Parlor, the Wednesday Morning Study Group will begin a new book study. Our focus will be on the book Atlas of the Heart: Mapping Meaningful Connection and the Language of Human Experience by Brene Brown.
According to the author,
“If we want to find the way back to ourselves and one another, we need language and the grounded confidence to both tell our stories and be stewards of the stories that we hear. This is the framework for meaningful connection.”
Books can be purchased through your preferred bookseller and there is no need to register for the study. For more information about the group or help purchasing the book, contact Rev. Donna McKee, the facilitator, at .

Women of the Bible Study: The Canaanite Woman
Mondays, April 18-May 23, 10-11:15 a.m.
This study will meet at the home of Pam Phinney
In the gospel of Matthew 14, we read about Jesus' unexpected encounter with the Canaanite woman. It is one of the few stories in which a woman character is granted a significant voice and their meeting proved to be a defining moment in Jesus' ministry. Join us as we do a "deep dive" in these eight verses that speak to so many overlaying issues: race, culture, gender and socioeconomics.
The only resource needed for this time of sharing is your Bible and a curious mind. Any additional resources will be handed out at the time of the meeting. You will need to register soon as participants will be limited to 10-12 due to space limitations. Once registered you will receive meeting location details.
