adult enrichment

We encourage our members to use their gifts and interests to develop both spiritual and non-spiritual events, offering our congregation learning and fellowship opportunities.  

In addition to Bible studies, special Advent and Lenten series, speakers from the local Missions we support, and pot luck suppers, we have also enjoyed an eagle watch, a wildflower hike, a discussion on exploring “Ways to Pray,” and a book club.

Book Discussion Group

James is the next book for our Book Discussion Group. We will meet on Tuesday, July 16th...meeting details to follow. 

 

James by Percival Everett is anything but a straight-ahead homage to a literary classic (Huck Finn). Instead, Everett has a cultural homicide in view. He wishes to kill the Black stock character, entrenched in American fiction and film. James is best understood as a systematic dismantling of that shopworn staple, the Black man or woman who exists to rescue and morally enlighten a fallen but basically redeemable white protagonist. And Everett’s quarrel is not with this archetype alone. He takes aim at the ethics embodied by the magical Negro: the idea that oppression exalts, that suffering purifies the spirit. Everett’s counter-thesis is that oppression hardens; suffering sharpens. James cuts.
