May 16: The Advent Parables. We’ll look at the challenging “Advent” Parables in Matthew 24 & 25, which contain Jesus’ teachings on the future “Coming [Advent] of the Son of Man.” These include the Parable of the Faithful or Unfaithful Slave, the Parable of the Ten Bridesmaids, the Parable of Talents, and the Parable of the Sheep and Goats. Led by Ken Kovacs

May 23 Pentecost: Come, Holy Spirit. Veni, Creator Spiritus! (Come, Creator Spirit!) is a very ancient prayer of the church, invoking the presence of the Holy Spirit – the Holy Spirit as Creator. On this Pentecost Sunday, we’ll explore the person and work of the Spirit as the source of creativity, imagination, transformation, and newness in the life of the believer and in the ministry of the church. Led by Ken Kovacs.
