Spiritual growth

Sunday worship is just the beginning! Deepen your relationship with God and connect with others in a small group.

Weekly Groups

Scripture/Sermon Discussion Group

Join us for a deeper dive into the Sunday sermon and scriptures on Sundays at 9:30 am (online or in the conference room) or Wednesdays at 11:00 am (online only). A spirited and prayerful discussion is pretty much guaranteed! Feel free to drop in anytime. Click here to sign up.

Contemplative Practices

Contemplative Practices, which includes Centering Prayer, meets on Sundays at 10:00 am in the West Side Room. Centering Prayer is an ancient form of Christian meditation in which we rest silently in the presence of God. It's powerful...and easy to learn. All "levels" are welcome, including newcomers to the practice. 

Tuesdays With Marc

Pastor Marc's book group meets on Tuesdays at 7:30 am - online and in the West Side Room - to discuss Belden Lane's The Great Conversation: Nature and the Care of the Soul, a multi-faceted treatise on spiritually centered environmentalism. At the core is a belief in the power of the natural world to act as teacher. Click here to sign up and/or purchase the book. 

Monthly Groups

Circles of Trust and Group Spiritual Direction

Are you frustrated with the chatter and opinions of others that seem to fill our heads every day? How about setting aside some time each month to practice listening to your own voice, your own God-given insights? Participating in a Circle of Trust or Spiritual Direction small group will offer you this gift. Groups are created each September and meet once a month through June - both in person and via Zoom. Email Pastor Liz for more information.

Men's Council

Guys, you're invited to join us in person or via Zoom for Men's Council. The monthly 90-minute meetings begin in October and finish up in June.

Men's Retreat - October 13 to 15
Holy Ruckus: Reclaiming a Presence that Makes a Difference in the World

In a world of taking our lives oh-so-seriously, you're invited to “return to square one and start over like children” at our Men's Retreat at the Warwick Conference Center. Consider this a permission slip to explore innocence and ruckus as pathways that support or shatter life. It’s time to shed self-defeating behaviors or beliefs that straight-jacket us from our glorious spontaneity, from abundant life, and keep us playing too small. Our leader will be Matthew Lyda, who is co-founder of Recover the Wild as well as an author, poet and spiritual director. Click here for more information and to sign up.
