We seek the spiritual. Both adults and children come together on Sunday morning at 10:30 ready to greet one-another, listen, share, and appreciate our worship service. Some of us have had a head start. Choir members have rehearsed the morning’s songs and had a cup of tea, or our discussion group has shared a lively give-and-take about their latest book. The children stay with us through our “Story for all ages,” then leave with their teachers for Religious Education. At 11:30, we all gather in the parish hall to meet that new person we noticed in the sanctuary or share an idea spurred by the sermon – oh yes and to enjoy coffee and snacks.
Sunday mornings is not the only time we seek the spiritual:
Choir & Music Groups
Adult Choir meets every Thursday from 7-9 pm for practice, and at 9 am for rehearsal on the days the choir is singing for church service (twice a month). All are welcome.
Groups arise as interest flows. A popular program example featuring “Aging as a Spiritual Practice: A Contemplative Guide to Growing Older and Wiser” by Lewis Richmond.
Early Morning Yoga
Thursday from 7-8:15 a.m. Start your day with a moderately paced Hatha Yoga class. All experience levels are welcome. All adults and teens are welcome. Donations accepted.
Outreach & Consultation
Reverend Lara goes to local community activities to meet and greet people. It is one of our ways to meet others and be known we care for all. All can schedule private time with her for personal consultation as well.
Ripples of Peace Sangha
The Sangha is a community of friends learning and practicing the teachings of the Buddha. Our weekly gatherings on Tuesday 5:15-6:45 pm begin with sitting and walking meditation followed by reading from a Buddhist teacher. The Sangha is an open gathering.
Small Group Ministries
Small Group Ministries are intentional lay-led small groups that deepen and expand the ministry of a congregation. SGM helps build community and provides opportunities for deeper relationships and opportunity for deeper spiritual exploration and search for meaning.
Sunday Adult Discussion Group
This popular group meets from 8:30 to 10:15 am two Sundays a month. The Adult Discussion Group encourages an open exchange of free flowing ideas on broadly spiritual themes based on selected books and articles of interest.
All are welcome to attend meditation sessions held in the Sanctuary or Parlor on Wednesdays and Saturdays. You are in solemn focus but in a group effort. All levels welcome. Please check the newsletter for dates and times. There are no summer meetings scheduled.
Women for All Seasons
Explore and celebrate the cycles of nature and the seasons of our earth and our lives, share and discuss, and get to know each other. All women are welcome
