Starting this fall you are invited to explore core ideals of the Christian faith with Vicki and Stephen in Animate Bible. In each of the seven sessions, the group will watch a video featuring a leading voice from the Christian faith, spend time on personal reflection and journaling, and share ideas with the group.

We will hear from theologians and religious scholars (some that are familiar from previous Animate programs and others that are new to us) on topics covering the basics of biblical scholarship. Vicki and Stephen will share leadership of this program over the year.

Because we need to order materials from the States, registration deadline is Monday September 10th. Cost is $20 for a participant workbook. Please call (403-274-2361) or email Essie, essie(@)symonsvalleyuc.com, to register. Cost need not be a barrier to participate in this program. Please contact Vicki or Stephen for subsidy information.

If childcare is required, please let Essie know when you register.
