ADULT LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES
Monthly Prayer Brunch (BGUMC)
Monthly fellowship and prayer gatherings over noon lunch at dates/times/locations selected each month. Check our newsletter for each month’s schedule.
Monthly Brew & Bible at Half-Pint Brewing Company (Prairie Lakes Parish)
Brew & Bible gatherings are offered once-a-month, at 6:00 P.M., at Half-Pint Brewing Company - our rural Blooming Grove Township neighbor. We join together as families and friends in a new way to consider faith: through fun, fellowship, and food. Hosted by Pastor Kathy King, we enjoy each other’s company, as well as a guided discussion - with a new faith topic each time - based on the resource “Pub Theology”. Upon arrival, participants can order pizza to be delivered from our BGUMC neighbor - the Pleasant Grove Pizza Farm. Check our newsletter for each month’s gathering date.
Monthly Bible Studies (Prairie Lakes Parish)
Bible Studies are offered every other Tuesday morning and every other Saturday. Participants gather in person, and/or through our ZOOM video-conferencing platform - available via computer or phone. Contact Pastor Kathy King if you are interested in being part of this time of study, reflection, and community.
Monthly Book Study & Social Justice Conversations (Prairie Lakes Parish)
Book Study and Social Justice Conversations are offered monthly - typically the fourth Tuesday of each month at 6:00 P.M. - and include a light dinner. Contact Cindy Saufferer if you are interested, to order a book, and to learn of each month's meeting date/time/location. The first 10 minutes, or so, are spent discussing the book and the remainder of the time together is spent in conversation. New participants are invited to join in at any time, with or without having read the current book. All are welcome in the circle!
