Pericope class is an open forum bible study. We meet every week at 9:30AM to look at the upcoming Sunday's readings in the church lectionary that are two Sunday's out. We discuss the text in detail, how it fits into the time of the church year, how it relates to us, and how might it be preached on Sunday. It is a time to really dig deep and ask the big questions before the Sunday service. The upcoming readings can be found in the lectionary calendar here.
