Immerse Poets: Sunday, Sept. 10, 2023 - Sunday, Jan. 28, 2024

UPC has a church wide movement to read through the Bible and participate in weekly discussion groups. To promote Bible reading and reflection, this class will use the Immerse Reading Bible. The Immerse Reading Bible is a six-volume Bible using the New Living Translation, created with the intention of increasing readability and improving the Bible reading experience. Immerse Poets is the fifth installment of the six volumes. Poets presents the poetical books of the First Testament in two groupings, dividing the books between songbooks (Psalms, Lamentations, Song of Songs) and wisdom writings (Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Job). These writings all reflect the daily, down-to-earth faith of God’s people as they live out their covenant relationship with him in worship and wise living. Participants read about 35 pages each week. Discussion groups meet weekly for 16 weeks during Equipping Time. New participants are always welcome. Discussion Groups will be offered in four ways: 1) Sunday Morning Equipping Time/Larson Hall: Participants will be assigned to a 6-8 person table for the series. 2) Sunday morning Equipping Time for Families/Larson Hall: Families will gather in a breakout room for a family friendly version of Immerse using the standard reading guide as well as an abbreviated kid-friendly version. 3) Sunday mornings via zoom (9:45-10:30am). 4) Tuesday evenings via zoom (7-8pm). The Zoom experience will use breakout rooms with discussion hosts. Existing UPC small groups are invited to participate as well. Register online by clicking the “Sign Up” button below. You may also sign up in person in the Narthex or Larson Hall and purchase your Bible at that time. The Immerse Bible costs $10. Note: Class will meet for 12 weeks in Fall 2023. We will take a break during Advent and finish the final four weeks in January 2024.
