These groups meet at different times over the course of a year, and focus on a specific topic of interest. Past offerings have included a C.S. Lewis book study, an overview of the gopsel and world religions, an interactive study of current films, a book of the Bible, and a study of Bach's music in light of the gospel of Matthew. Intown's many gifted teachers from different disciplines provide their insight into many interesting topics.
Often we connect most easily with others who share our interests. This is the purpose of Affinity Groups - to provide opportunities for Intown people to meet others in a range of ages and stages of life who share their interests. Some Affinity Groups meet regularly, while others gather for specfic events throughout the year.
