Tuesday Lunch Group invites you for discussion
Covenant's Tuesday Lunch Group welcomes all for robust discussion and a look at biblical wisdom led by Henry Trexler and Kelly Zellars. The group meets Tuesdays at 12:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall Library. To get connected, contact Henry Trexler. Here's a look at what's in store this fall.
Join us for a series on the Parables using The Short Stories of Jesus by Amy-Jill Levine. With humor and wit, Levine demonstrates how generations of Christians have 'domesticated' the parables. She invites us to read them anew through the lens of those who first heard Jesus' stories. Contact Kelly.Zellars1@gmail.com.
