Spiritual growth for adults is important in our church. We are always interested in new ideas for either of our ongoing groups and for new groups.
Truth Seekers is a study group that enjoys meeting to discuss current books, DVDs, and other publications with new insights on progressive Christianity. Recent studies have included Marcus Borg’s Jesus The Life, Teachings, and Relevance of a Religious Revolutionary, S. Lewis’s The Great Divorce, Daily Life in Ancient Times, a DVD series from The Great Courses, and dialogue inspired by a series of TED Talks. The group meets Thursdays at 11 a.m.
Lectionary Bible Study is led each Monday afternoon at 3 p.m. by Rev. Chris Breedlove and Rev. Melanie Weiner. The bible passages planned for the upcoming Sunday sermon are discussed. Chris and Melanie’s knowledge of the bible and this opportunity for question and answer interaction increases our depth of understanding. It’s always fun to hear what is said in the sermon after the Monday discussion.
Every few months after the worship service at 11:15 a.m., our minister and a deacon hold an Inquirer’s Class for people interested in learning more about what it means to be a member of this church and our denomination, the United Church of Christ. We welcome newcomers to mingle with us after the worship service in the courtyard for coffee and conversation.
