Introducing 20s30s CrossBrew!

20s/30s CrossBrew: Crossing Boundaries, Crossing Paths
First Gathering this Thursday, September 5, 7:00pm
Allison English of All Saints’ is teaming up with her husband, Robert, of First United Methodist Church of Santa Monica so the two churches’ 20s/30s groups can get together. We will meet 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month. There will be socializing and discussion over beer (hence CrossBrew) and our overarching topic for the fall is: Learning to approach and interpret scripture, and explore how scripture has authority in our lives.
