Everyone is welcome - you don’t need to be a Bible scholar, just have the desire to delve into the Bible, one scripture at a time! Please join us from 9:00 to 10:15 Sunday morning in the Fireside Room. Childcare is available in the Nursery, in Room 4, from 9-noon each Sunday.

Advent Bible Study


Tuesday Evenings during Advent Led by Pastor Benjamin Faith Chapel, The Community Church of Sebastopol

Guided by the work of Walter Brueggemann, Pastor Benjamin will lead a 4-week Bible Study on Isaiah 9:6 for those seeking to explore a “sub-version” of the Christmas story, a version that speaks underneath the superficial version touted by dominant culture.

The primary resource, “Names for the Messiah: An Advent Study,” by Walter Brueggemann, is not required but may be ordered through Sebastopol’s own Copperfield’s Books, or online.

4 Tuesdays, 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. in Faith Chapel

  • November 27 – “Wonderful Counselor”
  • December 4 – “Mighty God”
  • December 11 – “Everlasting Father”
  • December 18 – “Prince of Peace”

To offer the class, Pastor Benjamin is asking that, by November 18, at least 8 people commit to attend all four sessions. Additional participants are welcome to attend one or more sessions.
