Reading Between the Lines
The Reading Between the Lines curriculum adds to our understanding of scripture and allows us to reflect theologically on topics that arise from cultural and literary inspirations. This small group study is a deep dive into the place where the Bible's story and our stories intersect. Christ Church has three RBTL groups led by Amanda Anders and Charles Conner. Space is limited. Registration is required.
Sign up to receive an inspirational Bible passage from the Old or New Testament every day. Purposefully-selected daily scripture passages are emailed each morning to subscribers. Participants are encouraged to develop a routine or spiritual practice as you read, meditate, and seek to understand how God is speaking to you through each passage. Sign up »

The Good Book is open to the wider community and even to the world. Consider inviting a friend, colleague, family member or neighbor to join you and us! Learn more »
