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.

Communion & Prayer Group

Join us on Tuesday morning's and refresh your spirit with a time of communion, centering, meditation and Lectio Divina. This 'worship experience' lasts about 45 minutes to 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 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. Visit any Tuesday morning, and just 'be.' 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!

Eckhart Tolle Reading Group

The Eckhart Tolle 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!

Faith Stitchers

The Faith Stitchers are a group of sewers of all ages and skill levels that gather twice a month to engage in a variety of ministry projects and enjoy social time together while sewing! They sew stockings for the annual Grace House Gift Ministry; they sew sheets for a local childcare center, where many of the children are from lo-income families; they sew costumes for various plays and pageants here at Faith UCC and so much more. The Faith Stitchers meet on the 1st and 3rd Thursday's, from 10:00am to 3:00pm. You are welcome for the whole time or just a part of it. They meet at a studio in Dunedin.
