The Lean In Study Group aims to build congregational vitality by leaning into Woodland Presbyterian Church’s More Light and Matthew 25 commitments as an LGBTQIA+ affirming and anti-oppression faith community. Through open discussion and meaningful study, we attempt to answer the question ‘How do we turn God’s love for all people into individual and communal action?’

Monthly Book Club
Join us on November 8th for our next Book Club discussion! We will meet at @1p following service and dive into The Myth of a Christian Nation by Greg A. Boyd.
The present activity of the religious right is destroying the heart and soul of the evangelical church and destroying its unique witness to the world. The church is to have a political voice, but we are to have it the way Jesus had it: by manifesting an alternative to the political, “power over,’ way of doing life. We are to transform the world by being willing to suffer for others – exercising “power under,’ not by getting our way in society.
Leaning Into the Politics of Jesus
From October 11th through November 8th we will study the politics of Jesus and how they have been changed the last 2000 years. We will wrestle with passivism, the subversive nature of the gospel, Christian mythology in America, and what Jesus would do in our world today. Don’t go through these trying times alone, so join us for thoughtful and life-giving conversations.
