Thursdays at 9am begins Sept. 8 –  Pastor’s Bible Study “The Difficult Words of Jesus” by Any-Jill Levine
In this 6 week study, Amy-Jill Levine shows how these difficult teachings would have sounded to the people who first heard them, how have they been understood over time, and how we might interpret them in the context of the gospel of love and reconciliation.
Facilitated by Rev. Mollie Brown via Zoom. To join, contact the office at westlakeumc@westlakeumc.org

The Bible Year – The Bible. 365 days. You? Yes, You!!
Rev. Magrey deVega has developed a wonderful new resource for people to read the Bible together.
