    Does your knowledge of the Old Testament feel like a grab bag of people, books, events and ideas? How many times have you resolved to really understand the OT? To finally make sense of it? In The Epic of Eden Video Study, Dr. Sandra Richter clearly and powerfully communicates a history of God’s redeeming grace, weaving together a story that runs from the Eden of the Garden to the garden of the New Jerusalem.


    Through text and video teaching, Dr. Richter uses this 12-week study to bring a new dimension to the history of the ancient Near East, orienting any study group in time, geography, culture, redemption, and relevance to today — all without diminishing her reader’s faith or dumbing down the scripture.


    Legendary Bible stories take on new life as Dr. Richter clearly articulates their part of a larger pattern, revealing an even deeper significance for the stories individually. The Epic of Eden video study is ideal for serious church groups wanting a meaty study of biblical text, as would anyone eager for a strategic grasp of the good, the bad, and the ugly of the Old Testament and how it relates to God’s activity in the present.

  • Social Justice Connection Group

    Sunday Mornings

    Note: This group will resume meeting in August

    MEETING ONLINE Sundays 1:00 pm

    Led by Dr. Anthony Harris


    The Social Justice Connectional Hour group meets via Zoom at 1:00 pm each Sunday until 2:00 pm. Please email Dr. Anthony Harris for the Zoom link invitation.

    Our focus is to explore and have meaningful conversations around issues related to race, racism, class, immigration, and how Christians can respond to those issues. 

    It is important to note that this is NOT a book club. The books are aids and supplements to help our conversations and understandings about race and religion in our country. So, having read the books is NOT a prerequisite for joining the group. This is an open and welcoming group. It is a guilt-free zone that respects the views and beliefs of all.
