Wednesday Night Dinner & Bible Study

Wednesday night dinner and Bible study continues on Wednesday, Sept. 15. This fall we will be studying The Kingdom Parables of Jesus, those parables in which Jesus says, “The Kingdom of Heaven is like…” The format will be lecture/small group discussion. Pastor Tim will review the story for 20 minutes or so, then we will break into small groups for discussion questions together. The discussion questions will be provided.

If we are in Covid Phase Red, there will be no dinner and the class will move entirely onto Zoom. We will use the Breakout Room feature for the discussion.

If we are in Covid Phase Orange, the Bible Study will be in-person with a Zoom option for those who wish to join from home. We will also gather for dinner at 6:00 p.m. during Covid Phase Orange, but a prepared meal will not be served. Instead, we invite those who desire to gather for dinner, with each person/family providing their own “brown bag” dinner.

If we are in Covid Phase Yellow, the Bible Study will be in-person with a Zoom option for those who wish to join from home and a prepared meal will be provided at 6:00 p.m.

The Zoom link and discussion questions for the week are available via the buttons on the right.

Dinner: 6:00 p.m.

Bible Study: 6:30 p.m.

Covid Precaution Phases – August 17th

At its stated meeting on August 17th, 2021, the Session of 2nd Presbyterian Church implemented the following Covid Precaution Phases. The congregation will be informed if/when we move to a different phase. We are currently in PHASE ORANGE.

Covid Precaution Phases

Each phase is tied to the 7-Day Average Covid-19 Percent Positive Test data as reported by the Knox County Health Department. (Currently being reported on Tuesday and Thursday.) If the data necessitates a move into a different phase, an email notification will be sent to the congregation and the website will be updated to indicate the current phase. Additionally, signs will be posted on the doors of the building and the information will be repeated in the Friday E-News. The precautions associated with each phase will be displayed on the home page of the website.
