Weekly Announcements

                        Adult Formation
We take a second week to conversation around the Christian theology of death.  With the upcoming season of Lent, this is an appropriate time to explore the meaning behind the words: "We are dust and to dust we shall return."  It is not a reality that we like to face, much less embrace, and yet underneath it rests our identity as Children of God and the promise of our Christian faith.  We will take some time to discuss the Christian meaning of death, both the death we proclaim in our Baptismal Vows and our physical end.  We will also cover how these ideas have changed through the years.  We hope you will join us Sunday morning, 8:30am, in the conference room.

Start Your Morning with Us in:

Resource for Christian Spirituality
Please join us for centering prayer on Tuesday mornings from 8:00-9:00 am on the 2nd Floor, Suite B. In centering prayer, we sit in silence before God, making ourselves available to the Spirit's presence and action within us. Whether you're new to the practice or experienced, we welcome you. We begin with 20 minutes of centering prayer. Then we'll experience the scriptures coming alive through a guided process of reading and reflecting on a short scripture passage. We close the intercessory prayers for those close at heart.
