Faith Bible Study
Thursdays, 10:00 a.m. in the Colonnade
Led by Rev. S. Lindy Purdy
Join Lindy Purdy and Dan Stark as we take a deeper look at the Lenten themes and topics preached on Sundays. Each participant will be given a Lenten Devotional Booklet to use on your own or with others as we journey through Lent together.
Saturdays, 9:30-11:00 a.m. via Zoom
Saturday Seekers is a lay-led discussion group sharing roles in leadership and a diversity of topics. All are welcome. We agree it’s okay to respectfully disagree. We SEEK to learn and understand. We’re growing our faith following in the ways of Jesus. How can we engage to develop healthy, holistic worldviews? How do we plant our gardens called life? What books, media and outside speakers might give us a boost? Throughout spring we’ll continue Community Conversations on social justice and human rights. With occasional pastoral guidance we’ll delve into some scriptural passages with a bit of Midrash and Readers’ Theater. Watch for dates we’ll share with Seekers.
Most Saturdays we meet via ZOOM.When that varies, we’ll let you know in advance by email. (No meeting on April 8 and May 27.) If this sounds like you’d be interested, contact Judy Reed by email email@example.com.
Deepening Spiritual Connections in Daily Life
Mondays, 9:00-10:15 a.m.
April 17 & 24, May 1 & May 8 in the Colonnade
Led by Dana Essex, PhD, WCC Caring Community Minister
How often do you find moments of deep peace and satisfaction in your day-to-day life? How often does connection with other people, God, or nature make you feel more alive? How often are you touched by a sense of awe-inspiring beauty, compassionate love, or pure joy? Fortunately, research is suggesting that a regular practice of paying attention to experiences like these can help any of us find them more often, cultivating richer, deeper, and more satisfying lives.
Spiritual Connection in Daily Life, by Lynn Underwood, introduces sixteen simple questions that invite us to become more aware of our experiences such as peace, joy, sense of inner strength, and giving and receiving love. Our study will help us increase our awareness and find ways to deepen our spirituality through practice. We will also find a common language for sharing our differing spiritual beliefs with each other. Click here to register.
