Sunday Morning Small Groups

The Early Bird Bible Study – 8:30 am in-person in the church house parlor and online with Zoom, led by Chris Whitlock 

The Early Birds are starting up September 18 with a study of favorite hymns and anthems and the scriptural basis behind them. Chris says, “I have always loved the music of our church. I find hymns a great way to remember key scripture. I also love the poetry and imagery of the lyrics in our hymns. I look forward to exploring the stories and scripture behind our hymns and anthems.”

I hope you can join us! Invite others! Contact Chris Whitlock for a zoom link.

Adult Study Group – 11:15 am, Zoom discussion

The Old Testament confronts us with a wide range of different and often conflicting ways of understanding and wrestling (sometimes literally) with God, other humans, and the world that were developed during the long, complex, and turbulent period during which it was written.  This series of discussions will explore how the Old Testament sermon texts used this fall help to illustrate the continued relevance of this crucial section of the Bible.

All are welcome. Contact Maureen Paterson for more information.

Meditation groups

Groups meet through zoom on Mondays at 7:30pm, on Tuesdays at 8:30am and on Thursdays at 8:30am

Meditation is an ancient spiritual practice that has well-documented health benefits. Christian meditation offers the added benefit of opening pathways to help each of us to step into the presence of the Almighty, access the guidance and power of the Holy Spirit, and create space for resting in the love of our Lord and Savior. Everyone is welcome to give it a try!

Seeking Strength groups

Groups meet through zoom on Thursdays at 9:15 am and at 7:30 pm

Feeling lost? Fearful about what the future holds? Looking for a small group of mutually-supportive believers? Using Bible passages, prayer and sharing of experiences both good and bad, these groups provide the members ways to find strength in these troubled times. New groups and in-person groups may be formed based on popular demand.
