January 15, 22, 29 & February 5
9:45am - 10:45am
This is the final week of our Bible class. The Deep Blue Bible uses Common English Bible (CEB) text throughout with words and phrases that sound natural and conversational for today's reader. With this edition, children will read a Bible that sounds more like how we talk!
If your child would like to participate, simply attend the 9:30 worship service. We will walk downstairs with all of the Sunday School kids and meet in room LL8. You can pick up your child after worship service.
Email Kristin at email@example.com to RSVP for Bible Gift Sunday.

Sunday Morning Adult Ed
An Introduction to Second Temple Literature
Led by Dr. Malka Simkovich
Hybrid: Chapel and Zoom
Dr. Simkovich is Director of Catholic-Jewish Studies at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago. Last year, she led us in an introduction to early Judaism and showed that she has a wealth of information to share – and is an excellent teacher. She says that the Second Temple period could be considered the most important for Jewish history. During that period, they worked out how to survive destruction and exile, helping to ensure their survival when they no longer lived in one region. The course will take us through some of the intertestamental books (also known as the Apocrypha).
Sunday, February 5 – no class -- CPC Annual Meeting
Sunday, February 12 – Fourth (final) class led by Dr. Malka Simkovich
