Thursday Night Book Study

Thursdays, beginning December 2
7 p.m. • ZOOM
Amy Hollis, Facilitator

We invite you to join us for a study of Sue Monk Kidd's The Dance of the Dissident Daughter, a memoir about her search for the feminine divine, having been reared in a traditional, evangelical household. 

For years, Sue Monk Kidd was a conventionally religious woman. Then, in the late 1980s, she experienced an unexpected awakening and began a journey toward a feminine spirituality. Kidd tells her very personal story of the fear, anger, healing, freedom, and empowerment she experienced on the path toward the wholeness that many women have lost within faith traditions. From a jarring encounter with sexism in a suburban drugstore, to monastery retreats, to rituals in the caves of Crete, she reveals a new level of feminine spiritual consciousness for all women, one that has the power to transform in the most positive ways every fundamental relationship in a woman's life—most notably her relationship with herself.

Zoom information will be emailed upon registration.

Faces of Our Faith
9:50 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. (after 8:30 worship)
This study will also be available on

When you think of a true disciple of Christ, who comes to your mind? Is it someone who is extravagantly generous with their time, talent and money? Is it a friend who selflessly serves others or a grandparent who loves you unconditionally? Perhaps it is a historical figure who lived an exemplary life of faith? These "faces of our faith" help guide each of us along our journey of faith. All adults and adult Sunday school classes/groups are welcome to join us in the Sanctuary.

No need to register to participate.
