Monday Musings

This summer on the 1st and 3rd Mondays at 6pm at Common Fields we will share our musings on life, faith, what beverage feels celebratory.
First Monday Musing will be on June 17th.   The first topic of musings is: “Be a sinner, and let your sins be strong (or “Sin boldly”), but let your trust in Christ be stronger, and rejoice in Christ who is the victor over sin, death, and the world. We will commit sins while we are here, for this life is not a place where justice resides.”- Martin Luther

Common Fields is at SW 3rd & Western Ave in Corvallis 


Bible Study with Pr. Remy
Wednesdays at 1 pm

Wednesday Bible Study will continue at 1 pm in the Fireside Room.

All are welcome even if you have not attended before.

June 19th is called Juneteenth. While Juneteenth was designated a federal holiday in 2021, it has been celebrated by the black community in America for over a century. What is Juneteenth? Juneteenth marks the day in 1865 that enslaved people in Galveston, Texas found out that two years prior they had been freed through President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation. White land owners did not agree with this proclamation and prevented the black population they enslaved from hearing about this proclamation. This is not the first or the last time that people in power have not only refused but actively stood in the way of granting peace and prosperity to marginalized people. Unfortunately, the Bible was one of the tools used to justify the oppression of black people in America. In Bible Study this week, we will go over some of the texts used to justify slavery. Learning about the ways that the Bible is and has been misused helps us to prevent that from happening again.
