Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the meetup is temporarily on hold. During this time we are running an online group. For info, check out Online Lifegroups

Are you looking for...

  • A small-group to help apply scripture to modern life?
  • A place to take a deeper dive into Christian thought?
  • A safe place to explore the Christian faith?
Then check out our Sunday MeetUp. You don't need any previous Christian background, nor do we expect any outside work - though there are opportunities for that. We design every session to stand alone, though many are part of a series. 

We meet at New Life Nazarene Church, 20900 McClellan Rd, Cupertino, CA. on Sunday mornings at 9:15-10: 15 am in the northwest corner of the Worship Center (the building with the cross on top). You can expect a small group of 6-10 intergenerational people, ranging in age from their mid-20s to mid-80s. Just drop-in, or Contact Tim for more information. (If you have kids, we have a class for middle and high school students going at this same time, but not a regular program for children. However, if we know by Thursday that you are coming with younger children, we'll arrange childcare.)   

To get a feel for the content of a typical session, check out the links below. Each link includes the teaching notes followed by the session handout. Check the Archives box for session notes going back farther. 

Theological Nuggets from The Chronicles of Narnia

The general idea is to leave about three months between Narnia books to give participants enough time to read the book. Then we'll interrupt our normal lessons with one or two lessons on the next Narnia book. As we clarify the exact dates, we'll update this webpage.  

Here is a resource that will help you get the most out of the series: The Chronicles of Narnia - MeetUp resources.
