Topic: In the Beginning: A Therapist and Minister’s Take on Genesis

Leaders: Bob Montgomery and Jesse Tosten

Description: The first book of the Bible, Genesis, is literally packed with life lessons for today. As we explore the first pages of God’s Word, we’ll wrestle with questions such as:

• Is Genesis God’s first science textbook or is God beginning an attempt to tell you something about life?

• Your design or God’s design?

• Contracts or Covenants?

• What about that dang apple?

• Whatever happened to Adam’s rib?

• Is the garden about prohibition or provision?

These along with other teasing topics will surface and you will have your opportunity to listen,

discuss, and develop a framework for living today in light of how it all started in the beginning.
