Update from Rev. Angela Ryo – Staying Connected during COVID-19:

For the time being, the Christian Formation Team at the Kirk has successfully moved all of our Bible studies, classes, and Small Groups to an online video conferencing platform called Zoom.
All you have to do is click on any of the Zoom links during the specified time either on your computer or phone from the comfort of your home, and you’ll be able to zoom into a Bible study or a Small Group! If you have never used Zoom before and would like to learn more about it, you can read up on it here.
Please email if you’d like to practice using it before any of the meetings. I’d be more than happy to go over Zoom with you! We’re delighted and grateful that we can be community together during these uncertain and chaotic times. Let’s stand tall and continue to grow together in Christ!
We Belong Together,
Pastor Angela

January 10 and 17
The Reformed Tradition
The Reformed Tradition. How has it shaped our lives as Presbyterians? As church leaders? What does it mean to be "reformed?" We will work to answer those questions and more as we take a look back at the history of Christianity and how our creeds - from the early church, through Europe's 16th century reformation, to our modern creeds - have shaped our faith and grounded the church. Weaving the old and ancient into our lives today is important and we look forward to spending part of the first Sundays of 2021 with you as we all learn together.
Facilitator: Bob Beck (Clerk of Session)

How to Read the Bible
As Christians, we’re encouraged to read the Bible. But where do we start? How do we begin to read and interpret the Bible? Join us as we explore the importance of reading the Bible and learning the basics of biblical interpretation!
Facilitator: Pastor Angela

February 7 and 14
Biblical Archeology
For two Sundays, we’ll explore the fascinating world of biblical archeology that will move you from doubt to faith! In the first week, we’ll explore findings from the Ancient Near-Eastern world. In the second week, we’ll learn about the archeological findings of the New Testament. These two classes will surely blow you away and ground you at the same time as you grapple with extraordinary findings from the biblical times!
Facilitator: Dr. Brennan Breed
