Each week at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday. several CHUM friends gather with Pastor Dianne to study the scriptures and then go out to lunch. Currently we are finishing up the stories of King David and his complicated family and friends.
On September 17th, we will start reading the writings of the prophet Jeremiah. We’ll also be watching clips from a movie about Jeremiah’s life, featuring Patrick Dempsey in the lead role. We’ve found that having the story on film really helps us understand the dynamics of the “big picture” setting of the scriptures.
No prior Bible study experience is required! Following our study and prayer for others, we have fun going out to eat at a different restaurant each week. We are usually finished with lunch by 2:00 p.m.

We gather to worship to give thanks for who God has created us to be, what God has done for us and to listen to where God is calling us next. Holding to our values, we are shaping our daily lives so that we can live out our faith in word and deed. By doing this we are becoming a Missional people. We join with God in God's ongoing vision for transformation in our neighborhood, city and world. We invite you to join us.
