Community groups

We gather to create community, talk about all sorts of spiritual things, explore the Bible, and pray together. Bring your doubts, beliefs, questions, and all of who you are. New folks are welcome to join this community group anytime; we love new people (and old people).

bible exploration group

We're a weekly small group focused on taking an open, frank look at what the Bible has to teach us here in Chicago 2019. We use a contemplative approach to digest scripture as it was designed to be — in context, with multiple interpretations, and in community. Our group is conversational, not pedagogical, and aims to further understand God, Creation, and oneself through the Bible and each other.
