“Love God” calls us to know more about God and what God wants for us.

You can’t love what you don’t know. Here at SHPC we offer a wide variety of classes and bible studies that aim to deepen our understanding of who God is and how we can live into all that God desires for us.

Illuminated | A Virtual Advent Retreat

December 3 - December 27

Online Journey Led by Jan Richardson

An invitation into the heart of Christmas.
In a chaotic time, the Illuminated retreat will offer a space of elegant simplicity. Intertwining reflection, art, music, and community, this four-week online retreat provides a distinctive opportunity to journey through Advent and Christmas in contemplation and conversation with others along the way. This online retreat is not about adding one more thing to your holiday schedule. It is about helping you find spaces for reflection that draw you deep into a season that shimmers with mystery and possibility.

Jesus In The Gospels

Mondays | 10:30AM | Adult Portable | Begins Sept. 11

Jesus in the Gospels in a 30-week study that will be offered in two sessions. The first has been completed and the second will start September 11, 2023 and run through January, 2024. This study focuses on the portraits of Jesus found in the four Gospels. The word in used in the title signals that this study takes an approach different from the familiar “life and teaching of Jesus” approach of reading stories and accounts of what Jesus said and did in order to draw conclusions of their meaning about who Jesus was. This study looks at the way each Gospel writer presents events and teaching and at the picture of Jesus that emerges in each of the Gospels.

Created to be Creative:
Art + Faith

Meets Twice Monthly On Fridays | 7PM | Kid's Building | Begins Sept. 1

Journey with us as we explore bible verse through creative art and making! Each month we will make a creative work based on bible verses from the current sermon series. No prior art talent or training is required, only a mind open to deepening your faith through the creative process. The first class of the month will include some technique instruction and time to work on creative projects in fellowship. At the second class of the month we will have a discussion session to share our completed projects and our experiences with exploring scripture through art and making. Registration on Realm is strongly encouraged so we can have enough supplies for everyone!
