Our hope is that our adult education and program offerings will stir you to ask more question, seek more connection, and wonder how this life in Christ inspires us to love God and neighbor.

Sunday Mornings at 11:15 A.M. and also 2nd & 4th Thursdays at 8 p.m.
As COVID 19 continues to provide us with the opportunity to re-imagine what it looks like to be Christian community in the midst of a pandemic, we will spend the fall exploring the core practices of church as expressed in the sacraments. We will gather around the structure put forth in Searching for Sunday by Rachel Held Evans, thinking with her about the many ways church life and family life form human identity.
Here’s a brief outline of what to expect:
Introduction Session: Why do we gather?
The church tells us we are beloved (baptism)
The church tells us we are broken (confession)
The church tells us we are commissioned (hold orders)
The church feeds us (communion)
The church welcomes us (confirmation)
The church anoints us (anointing of the sick and dying)
The church unites us (marriage)

OTHER FORMATION OPPORTUNITIES
The Living Contemplatively Spirituality Group
The Group meets on Thursdays at 3 p.m. over Zoom, reflecting together on the book Holy Envy: Finding God in the Faith of Others by Barbara Brown Taylor. In that book she reflects on the ways other people and traditions experience the Transcendent and what we might learn from other religious traditions that can enrich our own faith. If you would like to join the group, or would like more information, please email the Rev. Amy Dills-Moore.
Our Tract Rack is located just inside the red doors of our church. These little booklets are for you to take home. A donation is requested, but if you don’t have the means at the time, please feel free to help yourself. There is a wide variety of well written and thoughtful short booklets. We hope you will use this resource in your daily devotions, spiritual journey, or just to consider questions you’ve always wanted to explore.
