Bible/Book Study Groups offered during the Fall, Winter, & Lenten seasons.
How can we be (should we be?) a refugee-receiving community and what roles might we as a congregation and community be open to and called to fulfill in extending God’s welcome and love to the stranger in a foreign land? This 5-week series, co-facilitated with Reverend Amy Carter of Mayflower Church, provides the opportunity to learn about the issues, about the difference between asylees, refugees, and immigrants, and the refugee resettlement processes. This 5-week, evening, Zoom class is open to Billings First Congregational Church and Mayflower Congregations as well as the public.
Historical narratives, binding documents, political commentary, genealogy, poetry, song...what exactly is the bible and does it still speak to us today? This 6-week study explores the bible using two wonderful resources, What is the bible? (Rev. Anne Robertson) and Marcus Borg’s, Reading the Bible Again for the first Time. Join us for this 6-week, evening, zoom study as we encounter the Bible in a fresh, new way that rejects the limits of simple literalism and opens up the rich possibility of living a life of authentic faith.
