Small Group Gatherings

PRAYING THE LABYRINTH

 

Facilitators: Pastor Kathleen
Date: Wednesdays, March 8-April 5
Time: 7:00 - 8:30pm, Bowker Hall
Cost: None
Notes: Come and learn about the spiritual practice of the labyrinth on Wednesday evenings during Lent. This discipline is an ancient practice that mimics one’s journey to the Holy Land. The act of prayerful walking is deeply ingrained in scripture. This interactive study promises to be uniquely introspective and fun while we create this meditative path. The study is open to adults and school age children (grade 3 and up).

SUPPER CLUB

Do you like to eat and have fun? One of the best ways to get to know people better is to gather together for supper for the purpose of forming relationships of trust, caring and commonalities that may last a lifetime. The "Supper Club" is comprised of groups of 8-10 people (with a coordinator) who gather together around a meal once a month either at a restaurant, a home, a picnic area, etc. As part of our small group ministries, there will be a "spiritual component" and a "service component" as well as gathering for supper together, with the primary focus of fellowship and fun.
