WEEKLY WORSHIP @ FAITH UCC

Join us on Sunday Mornings at 10:30am for our Weekly Worship Service! This week's service (Nov. 26th) will be outdoors in the Butterfly Garden due to construction in the church. We'll be back inside next week. Bring your coffee and a blanket and enjoy worshipping among the butterflies! Sunday School and Childcare is Available during Worship Each Week.

Meditation & Communion Service

Join us on Tuesday mornings and refresh your spirit with a time of stillness, meditation Lectio Divina and communion. This 'worship experience' lasts about an hour, depending on the conversation encouraged by the Lectio Divina text of the week. Lectio Divina is a form of sacred listening where we listen to a text, poem or scripture read through 4 times, before exploring what it might have to say to us on a particular day. Meditation and stillness is also a large part of our time together. Communion is informal, done in our circle with homemade bread and grapes.  Visit any Tuesday at 10:00am.  All are welcome.

'Life is Life' Group

“Life isn’t difficult. Life is life!” This support group meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month, at 7:00 p.m. Groups will be open for individuals needing support with situational life issues as well as mental health issues. It is a safe, confidential place to share. Please note - THERE WILL BE NO MEETINGS IN JULY - JOIN US AGAIN IN AUGUST! All are welcome!

Faithfully Aging (for Women)

The Faithfully Aging Group meets on the 4th Wednesday of each month, at 2:30pm. This time together is an opportunity to share concerns and questions about aging - whether they are physical, mental and/or spiritual. It is an informal time where we might be discussing an article or book, or just supporting each other and sometimes laughing at ourselves as we discuss the trials, tribulations and yes - the many joys and blessings of growing older. All are welcome!

Books and Meditation Reading Group

Books and Meditation Reading Group meets on Wednesday Evening's, from 5:00pm to 6:20pm. The group began as a way for people to come together and read and discuss the spiritual writing of Eckhart Tolle. They are now exploring other authors. Their night also includes a time of guided meditation. All are welcome!

Thursday Morning Spiritual Study Group

Join us each Thursday, from 10:30am to Noon, for our version of a 'Bible Study.' We call it the Spiritual Study Group instead because we enter into the realm of all sorts of issues of faith in the theological, biblical, spiritual, political, economical and cultural realms. Through books, DVD Series, videos, coffee and conversation, we attempt to broaden our vision of what it means to be 'socially and theologically progressive' Christians in our modern day and age. All are welcome any Thursday. We may be into a particular topic (they do change often), but the conversation is always broad enough for anyone to plug right in. Join us!
