We will explore ways to live out what we’ve learned from our congregational discernment process using The Episcopal Church’s “Way of Love” as a path to express our calling as a church. The Way of Love is an intentional commitment to a set of practices. It's a commitment to follow Jesus: Turn, Learn, Pray, Wor-ship, Bless, Go, Rest. Please join us.
We currently have two classes to choose from on Sunday mornings:
New Seeds of Contemplation by Thomas Merton, Upper Room
For those interested in a contemplative focus, Marlene+ leads a study of the book New Seeds of Contemplation by Thomas Merton.
Weekly Lectionary Discussion, Chapel
We continue to read together the prayers and appointed liturgical readings and to share how certain passages speak to them personally at this time.
ADULT EDUCATION & FORMATION
Sunday Forums Sundays, 9am
Wednesday Evening Class: Way of Love Wednesdays during Lent (March 4-April 1), 6pm
We strive to know Christ more deeply and bring others to his redeeming grace.
EDUCATION & FORMATION
The Bible study group continues to read We Make the Road by Walking by Brian D. McLaren. This study is providing tools and space to talk about life’s journey in terms of themes and teachings of the weekly lectionary readings. We enjoy this time together and welcome anyone who would like to visit and decide if this is something they would find exciting and refreshingly new.
We continue with Godly play in the upstairs classroom every Sunday at 9:00- 9:45am. Lent is coming and with it, the Parables of Jesus will be told. Parables are a mysterious treasure that is sometimes hard to enter. When we revisit them time and time again maybe a new insight will appear. I wonder, what we will find.
This method of letting the children hear and see the stories allows for the whole person to engage in a story, sight, sound, touch and critical thinking through a wondering session after each lesson.
