Altar’d- A 40-Day Journey of Spiritual Transformation

Tuesdays, June 15–July 13, 9:00 a.m. or 7:00 p.m.

Altar’d, by Jennifer Kennedy Dean, is a 40-Day journey of Spiritual Transformation. Join Kristen Torres in Fellowship Hall in the morning or Julie Raines and Rebecca Tucker online in the evening to reflect, discuss, and grow in Christ. Registration is required. Books are available upon request. If needed, childcare reservations are required for the morning session.


Saints and Scoundrels

Wednesdays beginning June 16, 8:00 a.m., Online Only

The story of Jesus in the Gospels includes all kinds of interesting people―some who claimed to be saints but proved to be scoundrels, as well as scoundrels who were transformed into saints. In Saints and Scoundrels in the Story of Jesus, Nancy Guthrie provides a fresh look into what shaped and motivated specific biblical characters to see more clearly the ways in which they reveal the generous grace of Jesus toward sinners. Join Anna Kittinger and Candice Parker for this online study at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday nights.

Recipe: Caramelized Sweet Onion And Herb Quiche

Caramelized Sweet Onion and Herb Quiche

Makes 8 servings



1 9-inch deep dish pie crust defrosted or make your own

2 medium to large Vidalia onions (or 5 cups) halved and thinly sliced (with a mandolin if possible)

1 Tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil

2 Tablespoons European butter (Kerry Gold)

Salt and pepper to taste

1/3 cup fresh thyme and rosemary chopped

5 large eggs room temperature

1/2 cup heavy cream, half and half or 1/2 milk and 1/2 cream

6 ounces Gruyere cheese grated

2 Tablespoons mascarpone cheese

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese




Preheat oven to 350º F.


Heat olive oil and butter in a large skillet (12 inch) on medium and add the onions. Continue to cook on medium heat about 5 minutes until the onions soften. Then continue on medium to low heat until they are browned and caramelized. You will need to stir often after they start browning. As soon as the onions start sticking to the pan, let them stick a little and brown, but then stir them before they burn. This may take an hour or so.  Add a little water if necessary if they get too dry. Season with salt, pepper, thyme, and rosemary.


Blind bake the pastry at 350º F by covering the bottom with parchment paper and filling with weights. Bake for 10 minutes. After removing, turn down the oven temperature to 325º F.


Put the eggs, cream, gruyere, mascarpone, and Parmesan cheeses into the bowl of a food processor and mix until thoroughly blended. Pour into another bowl and mix in the onions, thyme, and rosemary.  


Pour the mixture into the partially baked pastry to fill the pan. Spread out the onions and herbs if possible if they are clumped together.


Bake for about 45 to 50 minutes or until the quiche is browned and set and a toothpick comes out clean. 


If the crust gets too dark, cover the edges with aluminum foil*


Let rest for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.  



*To make a foil shield, fold a 12-inch foil square into quarters. With scissors, cut out the center and round off the edges to leave a 2-inch-wide ring. Unfold the ring and place over the edge your quiche.
