The Congregatings (formerly known as the TBKers) meets twice a month and our programs and current event sessions are open to all!

2nd Thursday of each month:  Current events discussion. at 12:00 noon.  Brown bag lunch at 11:30 a.m. 

4th Thursday of each month:  Lectures by local speakers.  Brown bag lunch at 12:00 noon, program begins at 12:15 p.m.

Congregatings is an important community resource that meets for a lunch and learn session at noon, usually on the fourth Thursday of the month, except when other priorities interfere.  The group has met for over 25 years and in 2016 added a Current Events lunch and discussion on the second Thursday of each month. The Current Events format is for the moderator to bring 1 or 2 subjects for discussion of ~40 minutes followed by topics that the members bring to discuss. Over the years we have addressed many topics in our lunch and learn sessions presented by a diverse group of speakers recently including Ward Stare, Conductor of the RPO, Mark Cuddy, Artistic Director of Geva, Arnie Rothstein, CEO of RBTL, Chris Bensch, Director of Acquisitions of the Strong Museum.

*Brown bag lunches - Please, no pork or shellfish, no mixing of meat and dairy.

God informs Abraham that Sodom and Gomorrah will be destroyed, though Abraham attempts to convince God otherwise. God tells Abraham to sacrifice Isaac. Abraham obliges but is told that it was a test of faith and offers a ram to sacrifice instead.
