About this Event

Hello Friends!

It's time to plan for the October round of Art House Studies! We are back to our usual time of the month - third Wednesday/Thursday evenings. This page is for the study that will take place on Thursday evening. NOTE: This month we are continuing with the concept of differing the size of the group for each evening. For those of you who love a smaller, more intimate gathering, we are limiting attendance on the Wednesday study to 8 people, while maintaining Thursday at its usual amount of 18. If the smaller setting (which can be quite lovely as well) feels good, Wednesday is for you, and that invitation was sent out a few moments ago. But, if you're a person who feels more comfortable in a larger setting, Thursday it is! Sign up here!

For those of you who are new to the conversation, here's a quick explanation of what these studies are all about:

The first 15 people that respond to this invite will gather to study scripture together in a new, adventurous way. I (Melody) started studying this way through a fellow nonprofit organization, 40Orchards. Their website describes these studies best with the following phrases:

"Welcome to a different kind of Bible Study...

Where you are listened to before you are taught. Where theology mixes with vulnerability. Where all voices hold important space in the conversation. Where the Spirit drives instead of an agenda. Where the Story of God is a multi-faceted gem that each person turns. Where you are free to have more questions than answers. Where you enter a space that offers healing and wholeness. Where the hope is for you to discover how to live as the best you out in the world, not inside our walls."

Another hope that I hold for these studies is that you will enter a space where you can be honest with wherever you are on the spectrum of belief, and that you will find a community that embraces you and your creative mind. We will also open space for you to share the things you are creating lately, champion you in those endeavors, and inspire you to create with even more honesty, courage, and strength.

There will be light snacks served and an opportunity to donate to support the sustainability of these studies (suggested donation is $10). All you need to bring is a Bible, a notebook, a pen, and your "self" - which includes the mixed bag of openness, closedness, tiredness, awakeness - everyone/everything is welcome.

Hope to see you there!

- Melody
