Small Groups

The Presbyterian Church of Chestertown strives to make it possible for adults to continue the lifetime quest “ to give a reason for the faith that is in you.” This is done through various short courses, lasting one or a few sessions. There are bible studies, book studies, conversations on matters of current interest, and many other topics. Sometimes these are done after worship on Sunday, on weekdays, or in the evenings. They are led by the pastors and by others.  Contact the office to join or start a group.

 

Interpretations Bible Study: Genesis

The Men’s Fellowship Group resumes its study of Genesis using the Interpretations Bible Study Series. (Elder Scott Loveless)

Pub Theology

Honest, authentic God-talk, where all questions are open to the table. Our resource will be “Free of Charge” by Miroslav Volf. To quote a popular song; “Drinkin’ beer, talkin’ God. Amen.” (Rev. Joel)

Celebrating Sabbath

In the nine lessons of this Bible study, we’ll consider Sabbath as a celebration, not a day of dreary formality; as God’s intent for all of creation includes busy women, too; as a time to surrender unhealthy striving and frantic busyness and instead trust that God will provide; as a day devoted to community and justice and not exclusively to self-care. (Rev. Joel)

Rev. Caitlan’s Book Club

If you’re a former Christian, someone who has walked away from your faith for any number of reasons, you are precisely the reader author Brian McLaren hopes to reach. Wait, he wants to say. Hold on. There are reasons to remain where you are. Or, come back.  (Rev. Caitlan)

 

One River Group

Seek respite and gather weekly to study the book One River Many Wells by Matthew Fox. We continue with Part 3 this fall. Pray for one another and lift each other up (Members Ruth Vietri-Green and Terri Gloyd)

 

 

Interpretations Bible Study: Mark

We’ll use Interpretations Bible Study Series to review the ministry of Jesus from his baptism by John the Baptist to his death, burial, and the discovery of his empty tomb. (Rev. Joel)

Faith Matters

Presbyterian and Faith Life Church men open the door to free dialog to make faith matter. This group meets at Minary’s Dream Alliance on American Legion Road. (Rev. Joel)
