“Brewing Theology!” – Every Month

Join your friends for a wonderful discussion in a relaxing atmosphere with the ability to share in beverage and food!  Brewing Theology is a night when sisters and brothers get together at Stefano’s Restaurant located at 2970 Linden Street, Bethlehem, [NOTE venue change!] for informal discussions about faith and the world around us.  We are currently experimenting with different days. In May we will meet on Tuesday, May 8, at 6:00 PM (though some of us are there earlier to eat) and share time of fellowship together. Our gathering normally lasts until approximately 8:00 PM.  This is a great place to ask questions and simply process the world around us through a faith perspective!

Stories of Faith Bible Study

Join us every Thursday morning at 9:00 AM (Light of Christ Campus Library) or 6:30 PM on our St. Peter’s Campus (Social Room) for Stories of Faith Bible Study.  (Beginning June 7 the evening Bible Study will be suspended for the summer.) During this 90-minute session we will take a closer look at the Scripture assigned for the coming weekend worship celebrations and explore the questions and thoughts that you bring to these Scripture lessons!  There is no prior Bible Study experience necessary to join this lively discussion, simply bring an open heart and willing ears and see where the Spirit will lead our discussion. Consider joining us!

Women’s Bible Study – May 1 & 15

On Tuesday, April 3rd & 17th, the Women’s Bible Study group will gather in St. Peter’s Campus Social Room off the parking lot, from 9:30 to 11:00 am. This month’s focus will be on the story of the Prodigal Son. The study writer, Dr. Mark Allan Powell, will guide a discussion of understanding the multiple meanings different people and cultures find in that familiar story. What new learning might you find by joining with other women to study this frequently-told story? Plan now to continue your Easter faith wanderings with other women searching for new meaning in the Scriptures. The coffee/tea pots will be ready as will some healthy snacks and treats.
