This is our catalog of courses. We will occasionally adjust the course listing to reflect the addition of new courses and the retirement of others.
In this course you will carefully study the book of Genesis. Yes, we know all these stories well from our childhood. Yet, there is so much that we often overlook. As we read through these sacred texts together, we will find great insights in Genesis and will grow in respect for Scripture.
The Book of Genesis is wonderful, rich and inspirational. But we have been told these stories since we were little children, and tend to not pay close attention to them anymore! During this course we will be unpacking various details of Genesis and growing in our appreciation of Scriptures!
