  • Bible Study.  July-September: Download English study guide here.
  • Grace Center Book Discussion.  “Original Blessing: Putting Sin In Its Rightful Place”. Author Danielle Shroyer shows how the doctrine of original sin (Adam’s guilt and sinful nature transferred to all humanity) was not taught until post-4th century Western Christianity. She reminds that we are made in the image of God; that “we are a blessed people sent out of Eden, not a cursed people kicked out”. Come and join the discussion!

  • Seminar on Surviving an Active Shooter Event. Saturday, August 11, Sanctuary, 1:30–4:00 p.m. with Sergeant Toby Darby of the Glendale Police Department. Taking time to prepare is time well spent. Active shooter incidents are on the rise, and in light of the many tragic events that have happened in public spaces, knowing how to react can make the di erence between life and death. Sgt. Darby of the Glendale Police Department will be holding this important — and very realistic! — seminar in the Sanctuary. A delicious potluck lunch will be served in the fellowship hall before the seminar. Attendance is expected for all church volunteer positions; other members are also welcome. Invitations will be extended to surrounding congregations. This seminar includes graphic video footage.
  • This event is not appropriate for young children.
