Monthly Bible Conversations at Half Pint Brewing Company, Blooming Grove Township (Prairie Lakes Parish)
Bible Conversations 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”. A light supper is served at each gathering, and Half-Pint offers a variety of beverages from which to choose, including root beer. Check our newsletter for each month’s gathering date.
Monthly Bible Studies (Prairie Lakes Parish)
Bible Studies are offered every other Thursday 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 - "The Stretch" (Prairie Lakes Parish)
Book Study and Social Justice Conversations are offered monthly - typically at 7:00 p.m. - at Blooming Grove UMC. Contact Cindy Saufferer if you are interested, to order a book, and to learn of each month's meeting date/time/location. "The Stretch" is a space holding opportunities to learn, grapple, and discover how we show up as love in the world through justice-related topics. You can expect articles, book suggestions, informed discussion spaces, and a plethora of ways to experience what it means to be Christ in the world.
