Spiritual Growth

Prayer Practices Groups

We have two new groups starting in May of 2017

Thursday Mornings at 11 am

Sunday Evenings at 7pm

These group follow the same basic pattern. First, we take a few minutes of silence as we center our hearts and minds. Then we learn a new practice or prayer style and practice it. We add to our spiritual tool boxes. Then, we end by lifting joys and concerns and praying for one another. 

Sunday School Classes

We offer classes for every taste

M&M Class- A discussion oriented class, the M&M class meets up on the 3rd floor. Each week they read a short chapter in a book and then discuss what they thing about it. 

 

BYKOTA Class- Be Ye Kind One To Another- a more traditional class taught by Tom Noell. This class focuses on educational development and spiritual growth. They meet in the BYKOTA room, just off the back of the Sanctuary

 

FORUM class- This class takes a deeper look at the Lectionary scripture text each week. The Lectionary is a schedule of scripture verses for each Sunday, it lasts 3 years. Each week contains an Old Testament reading, a Psalm, a Gospel reading, and a reading from a Letter. The Forum class looks at each one, examines how they are connected, and seeks to understand each reading in light of the others. They meet in Alan's office around the big rectangle table. 

 

Children's ministry

We have wonderful nursery/childrens attendants that care for our babies and children. They provide childcare, teach a lesson, and do so while building strong, loving relationships. The room is located on the groud level near the main office.
