Connections is a small group that focuses on connecting relationships with our faith, the Bible, and each other. Class studies offer an informal atmosphere for nurturing spiritual growth and seeking wisdom, no matter where you are in your journey. Class members collectively select topics of study, resulting in an eclectic mix. Lessons are intended to stand alone - even when "connected" to a common theme - so that anyone can feel included on any given Sunday.
Currently, the class is reading A Gift of Love: Sermons From "Strength To Love" and Other Preachings by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. which is available for purchase in several formats here.

Spirited Parents is a warm, enthusiastic group that seeks to support each other during the parenting and spiritual journey. The class looks for inspiration and guidance from scripture and a variety of media, such as videos, podcasts, books, and each other. While we benefit from the weekly fellowship, the standalone format enables attendees to drop in as their schedules allow. Parents with children of all ages are welcome. We meet on the green, weather permitting, or by Zoom otherwise.

9:30 Study Group
9:15 Am on sundays
We get together on Sunday morning to learn more about the Bible and its importance in our daily lives. Class members may volunteer to teach and all members participate in the discussions. Members select the topics and the teacher determines how to present the material. Single, married, young, old. All are welcome.
Next study begins July 18: The Difficult Words of Jesus
Sometimes Jesus taught things that his followers found---and still find---confusing. Amy Jill Levine, Professor of New Testament Studies at Vanderbilt University Divinity School examines how instructions about hating your parents, selling what you own, referring to the Jews as the devil's children would have sounded to those who first heard them. They may still sound confusing to us. Professor Levine helps us see how these teachings can be interpreted within the context of the gospel. This will be a 5-week video series with no outside reading required. We hope you can join us.

Faith and Fellowship
9:15 am on sundays
We are a community of individuals who care for our classmates and others in the Mount Olivet family by attending to personal joys and concerns. We read and discuss scripture studies and books by contemporary theologians and other writers selected to bring insight to our spirituality. We understand that individuals are at different points along their spiritual journeys, which provides for meaningful, enlightening, and fun Sunday morning discussions.
