Spring 2023 Classes:
The Gospel of Matthew
Facilitated by Rev. Kara Windler
Beginning with Advent, we entered into liturgical year A of the 3-year Revised Common Lectionary cycle. During this year, most of our Gospel readings come from Matthew. This spring, adults of the United Church are invited to explore the Gospel of Matthew. We'll be using Justo Gonzalez's Three Months with Matthew as our guide and we'll pull in additional resources as we make our way through the gospel. Gonzales provides a reading schedule and covers between 1 & 4 chapters of Matthew per week. All are welcome regardless if you choose to get the Gonzales book or not. Copies of Three Months with Matthew can be purchased through your favorite physical or online bookseller. Classes will be on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8pm via Zoom. Please contact the Church Office for the class Zoom link.

Hosting duties are passed around within the group. The wit and wisdom shared cover all sorts of topics and the discussions have proven extremely interesting, informative, and supportive. We laugh a lot! See you there!
