Each week we will weekly practice ways to enlighten the story God has for our lives. Join Pastor Brian Norsman and receive practical tools that help re-narrate our personal stories to actively engage anew the world around us.
Telling our own stories can feel a little more manageable when we do it a verse at a time. Grab your favorite pen and join Intern Pastor Amy Mihelich Smith as we immerse ourselves in the poetry of our past, present, and future. We’ll read great poetry from the Bible and from contemporary authors. Inspired by prompts and guided meditations, we’ll write our own poems together. We’ll reflect on the transformative power of storytelling, practice sharing poetry with others, and discover how our verses contribute to the larger epic of God’s work in the world.

What are the stories that shape who your family is?

You’ll also explore how your family has experienced God, faith, and community and how you can share your family’s faith story with others.

A lighting-quick overview of the Old and New Testaments through the lens of common misconceptions, assumptions, and outright blunders. For many people the Bible is just a little bit scary; it's big, it's long, and it's serious business. Even for many of us raised on the Bible there are ways we think about the Bible that aren't terribly helpful, things we think we know about the Bible that are quite right. the reality is that as familiar as the Bible may be to us, most of us don’t know the Bible nearly as well as we think we do. The three sessions of "Everything You Know About the Bible Is Wrong" will help us enter into reading the Bible and making sense of it for our daily living. Pastor Karl Jacobson & Pastor Breckenridge
