Truth Seekers is a Thursday morning study group that enjoys meeting to discuss current books, DVDs, and other publications with new insights on progressive Christianity. Recent studies have included C.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.
Lectionary Bible Study is led each Tuesday afternoon by Rev. Melanie Weiner. The bible passages planned for the upcoming Sunday sermon are discussed. 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 what is said in the sermon after the Tuesday discussion.
Spiritual growth for adults is very important in our church. We are always interested in new ideas for either of our ongoing groups and for new groups. Most recently, a group has formed to study social justice issues in our community. This group meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 1:30.
We have an adult Faith Formation Website that provides many resources for exploring and enhancing our Christian faith – ways in which we engage with spirituality, the things that give our lives meaning, and the experiences we hunger for.
Newcomers: 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.
