We are offering three spiritual growth programs: Bible Study, Book Club, and Parenting Workshops.
The bible study will help you dive more deeply into your spiritual self and your relationship with God.  There is a regular adult faith formation twice a month, on Thursdays at 10:00 am in the library.
The book club will also meet on Thursdays at 1:00 pm, twice a month.  We will delve into spiriutal books and discuss Christianity, discovering and answering our questions, and learning how to talk about faith without having one right answer.
Parenting workshops will meet twice a month, on Saturdays at 5:30 PM for parents with elementary school age children, and 7:30 PM for parents with middle school and high school age children.  One of the main purposes of the church is to help people connect with God, out neighbors, and our true selves. For many of us, one of our primary pathways to God, neighbors, and our true selves, is the ministry of parenting. We bring children into this world and then together we find our way forward into life.

Yoga with Max is a moderate Kripalu yoga aimed for people of all abilities and experience. The goal of the class is to promote spiritual and physical well being through a series of postures that can be adapted for those who need either less or more strenuous experience. The class meets on Tuesdays and Fridays from 9 am until 10:15 am in our Kraft Hall. The class is free, although free will offerings are welcome.

Children stretching their arms

Every Sunday morning we gather to worship God with song, prayer, reflection and community. It sounds like a strange thing to do, but this is what defines us as God’s people in this place.
