All are welcome to join the Wednesday morning bible study outdoors during the months of June, July, and August. We'll meet in the Creekside Commons (on the north side of the church) from 10:30 am - 11:45 am on Wednesdays.

In order to get to know our more-than-human neighbours, we'll be reading through a selection of scripture passage that talk about animals and nature. Accompanying our study, will be the book Wildlife Congregations: A Priest's Year of Gaggles, Colonies, and Murders by the Salish Sea by wilderness priest and amateur naturalist, Laurel Dykstra. While it is not mandatory to read the book, it will aid in our discussion---and it's a fun read!

Please contact the Reverend Helen Dunn if you would like to attend. This study will be held in-person only. Dogs welcome!
