As long as there is a Covid spike in Springfield, and Missouri, we will be on Zoom. We will return to Church when it is deemed appropriate.

Summer Session 2021 (Now meeting on Zoom)


This summer we will be hearing from our class members. Our theme will be Portraits of the Life of Christ. Each Sunday we will explore whatever feature of the Gospels the speaker chooses. Since we come from a wide variety of views, this will be an eclectic offering.

The proposed time for the Summer session will be May through August.
