bible study

Join us at our weekly Bible studies as we explore the stories, the people and the history revealed in the Bible.

Wednesday Mornings: 10:00 - 11:30 a.m. with Pastor Lisa Kenkeremath in Room 5

"Sowing Tears, Reaping Joy: The Bible and Brahm's Requiem" will be the focus of the Wednesday morning Bible study during Lent (from March 13 - April 17). We will examine the scriptural texts used in Brahm's "German Requiem," listen to the music, and explore its themes of grief, loss, and hope. The enduring appeal of the Requiem lies not only in the sheer gorgeousness of the music but also in its combination of realism and hopefulness in the fame of human mortality  Please join us!

Thursday Evenings: 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. with Dr. Melissa Kirkpatrick in Room 5

We have begun a new study topic, the book of Exodus. We are examining the lessons YHWH gave to His chosen people as they made their way from bondage in Egypt to a new start in the Promised Land. We are discussing how these lessons apply to this gathering of God's people here at MPC in 2019. The only text book we are using is the one that is part of the core of our faith: The Holy Bible. We invite you to join us and bring your favorite translation of scripture with you. The more varied the translations and the more varied the thoughts of our members, the more fascinating the study sessions become. Note: No study on April 18 (Maundy Thursday) due to worship service.

Both groups welcome new participants at any time.
