Current Studies

 

With multiple studies to fit your time and interest, we’re sure you’ll find something that excites you. Please feel free to drop in on any study at any time or email the leader with any questions.

Tuesday Morning Study

We will be studying “Making Sense of the Bible” by Rev. Adam Hamilton and reading a chapter a week at home to discuss during our weekly meeting time on Tuesdays at 10:00 am in the Library.  This will give us extra time to spend learning how the Bible came to help us to understand the nature of scripture in a more complete way.   That means we will be reading and studying this book for a years as there are 32 chapters. 

You can join in this group at any time, if you are interested. All we ask you to do is keep up with the reading, if possible.  It promises to be a great study with lots of insight on how to interpret scripture and will change those new to reading the Bible as well as those who have been studying the Bible for decades. 

Hope you can join us. You can purchase the book where ever books are sold. Electronic versions are just fine.  There are also a few copies for sale in the church office for $11.  Questions? Contact Suzanne at Suzanne@cumchb.org.

 

Wednesday Evening Study

Join us Wednesday evenings through November 14 at 7:00pm in The Cove, for a fresh & timely interpretation of Jesus’ parables using the book “Short Stories by Jesus – The Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi” by Amy-Jill Levine.

Jesus knew how to tell a story.  He knew that to get his message across he needed to relate to the people who gathered to listen-first century Jews- who lived in a very different world than the one in which we live today. Author and professor Amy-Jill Levine takes us back in time and explains how original audiences understood Jesus’ parables.  Learn new interpretations, be challenged, and be provoked as we explore these stories that are over two thousand years old. Contact Suzanne at Suzanne@cumchb.org with any questions. 

 

Interfaith Book Group

We are thrilled to have an Interfaith Book Group meeting on the 1st & 3rd Friday of the month, starting Friday, from 10:00-11:30. The study will meet at various faith communities throughout the area. Contact Suzanne at Suzanne@cumchb.org for information about the next meeting location. 

Our first book is “The Book of Joy” by Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu. In this book, two men that have survived through more than their fair of suffering share their insights on finding joy, including personal anecdotes, spiritual practices, obstacles to joy and their practices for daily joy.
