Wise Wednesdays

 

Wise Wednesdays is way for us to explore together the ‘rubber meets the road’ practice of our faith. We will use this time to dive deeper into the call of living faithfully in these challenging times, exploring different relevant topics through the lens of faith and scripture. The meetings will be in person and on ZOOM. To best accommodate folks, we are test driving two different times to meet (note – the same program will be offered both times) :

  • 2nd Wednesday of the month – 6 pm
  • 4th Wednesday of the month – 11:30 am

 

Bring a bag meal or snack and join us in the parlor or on Zoom!

 

You can obtain the Zoom link in the weekly newsletter or by contacting the church office.

 
 

Sacred Space

Sacred Space offers a moment of pause to be in the presence of God. Each week, a variety of engaging, life-giving spiritual practices—readings, music, movement, silence, and other creative approaches—will guide our prayer. Sacred Space endeavors to be an open and safe place to meditate, commune, be renewed, and develop and strengthen the spiritual practice of prayer.

Sacred Space is a hybrid gathering. Join on Zoom or in person in the Chapel.

We will gather Thursdays at 5:50pm, and our Sacred Space time will begin at 6:00pm.

The Zoom link is in the newsletter; if you’re not subscribed, please request the link from the church office.

 

Friday Coffee Chat

 
 
End the week with great company!
 
Brew your favorite coffee or tea, grab a bit of breakfast, and enjoy a time to connect with others.
Fridays at 9am.

39. Track Your Use of Paper and Disposable Products 

  • This week, watch how often you use paper plates, disposable utensils and straws. See which of those items you can replace with reusable Tupperware and flatware that you can take with you. You can keep this in your car, purse, or backpack to use at a moment’s notice.
