Get Connected Sunday is your chance to meet our clergy and ministry leaders, learn more about what St. Francis does both within our walls and in our community, and connect with our members. And enjoy some delicious FREE tacos!

Date: Sunday, September 19, 2021
Time: 10:00 a.m.
Place: 2200 Via Rosa Palos Verdes Estates, CA 90274

Plan to join us! Sign up for the fellowship meal indicating the number of adults and children in your party:

We hear excerpts from the Old Testament, New Testament, and Gospels each Sunday, but may find it hard to see how these small pieces fit together into a connected narrative of God’s relationship to our world and to us human beings. This course will study the dramatic story of the Bible, and how that story relates to us, from God’s creation of our universe through the end of time.

The Bible’s divine drama can be broken down into six movements: Creation, Fall, Israel, Jesus, Church, and New Creation, which will be studied in seven classes. These classes will be independent of each other, so you may come to as many as you wish. You may come and participate in the discussions, or come and listen only. The course is based on the book Long Story Short: The Bible in Six Simple Movements by Joshua McNall, plus enrichment from other sources. Buying the book is optional since relevant information will be provided in-class handouts.

Classes (on Zoom):
Tuesdays, 7:00-8:30 pm
September 28 – November 9, 2021
