Our Programs
Articles of Faith

The Articles of Faith Adult Education Groups meet Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 10 to 11 a.m.    The readings are the same for both groups.

We read an article or book on a topic and then discuss it from a faith perspective.  Even if you cannot attend the group session, you are welcome and encouraged to read the selected book, or take copies of the articles as they are usually enlightening and thought-provoking.

In October & November 2019, the Articles of Faith groups will be reading the book Grateful by Diana Butler Bass. Copies of the reading schedule are available in the church office.

A Bible study of wonderers, wanderers, and worshippers meets Sunday mornings at 8:30 AM in The Gathering Place from fall through spring.  Everyone is welcome! (NOTE: Sunday Morning Bible Study will not meet in October while Pastor Robin is on sabbatical)

Passages @ Panera is a small group that meets with Pastor Robin at Panera Bread (3675 N. US 31 S) in Traverse City on Wednesday mornings from 10:30 to 11:30 AM for reading and discussion. (NOTE: Passages @ Panera will not meet in October while Pastor Robin is on sabbatical)
