There are currently two ongoing small groups meeting at the church for discussion of topics related to spirituality. One is for women and meets weekly on Wednesday afternoons at 1:30. The other is for both men and women and meets weekly Thursday evenings at 6:00. One does not need to be a church member to join. We have had folks from other churches or with no current religious affiliation. Group size ranges from 6 – 10 participants. Everyone is welcome and we are always glad to include new members. We typically use a book as a lead-in to discussions. Participants are expected to read a chapter (15-25 pages) each week and be prepared to talk about their reactions (positive and negative) to the reading. Some of our most lively discussions have come out of sections with which someone disagreed! Each meeting begins with sharing of concerns and celebrations and prayer followed by an open-ended discussion of the chapter. Both groups are starting new books in September so it is a good time to join us.
The women’s group is reading Accidental Saints Finding God in all the Wrong People by Nadia Boltz-Weber. Accidental Saints is a moving book of the Christian life by an unconventional Lutheran pastor.
The Thursday group is reading Sessions with Corinthians: Lessons for the Imperfect by Michael D. McCullar. The book discusses the foundational teachings of Paul to the Corinthians and how they can apply to us today.
New members are welcome at any time!! For more information about the groups, please contact Linda directly
