Lectio Divina

the ancient art of
spritual listening to the Bible

in an informal prayer gathering
with Taizé chants
Sunday mornings at 10:00

You're invited to bring a poem, a prayer,
or an experience you wish to share.
And bring your favorite mat or pillow
if you wish to meditate from the floor.

Adult Studies

Having concluded our exploration of “Science, Religion and an Evolving Faith”, Painting the Stars, in June,  we are taking a break for the Summer.

In the Fall, we are offering Covenant Bible StudyCOVENANT is an in-depth group Bible study in which people read and discuss the Bible together, learning how to love God – and each other – better.  Covenant represents a relationship – a living, breathing conversation. 

Two sessions are now forming for the Fall: an evening class, likely house based, with Evie and Rick, and a Sunday morning class with Tom.  Join us on the journey.  Contact the office to register your interest, and be part of the conversation to shape and schedule the class!

We’re a growing congregation of all ages, with nursery care and Sunday School during worship for the young ones or rocking chairs for nursing mothers right in the sanctuary. Designated a “safe sanctuary”, we are dedicated to providing a safe place for our children. More...
