Adult Spiritual Formation Ministries
Adult spiritual formation is an essential support for our lifelong Christian journey. We carefully balance opportunities to learn and grow in Christ with activities dedicated primarily to fellowship and fun (and some with a little of both mixed together).
SACRED CONVERSATIONS Sundays at 9:05 a.m.
Each September we observe the Season of Creation, an annual observance of the call to care and protect all of creation. It is celebrated by Christians of all traditions, and the leaders of faith traditions have encouraged the faithful to participate.
We are starting early this year, spending the summer looking at the effects of climate change if business as usual continues. Then we will look at the individual choices each of us makes in terms of diet, shopping…. things we do in our everyday life and how those choices impact the world.
First we will discuss The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming by David Wallace-Wells. Then we will look at books such as Food Is the Solution: What to Eat to Save the World by Matthew Prescott.
“We were made to love God, love people and love creation. Environmental stewardship is part of our calling as Christians, but the church has remained silent for so many years that we've defaulted to New Age pagans and industrialists." (Inside Magazine, “God’s Green Army Wants You!”)
READING BETWEEN THE LINES WEEKLY BIBLE STUDY
Reading Between the Lines meets Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. in the Library.
We believe in stories. Stories are how we make sense of our own experience and learn about the experience of others. We are surrounded by stories in conversations and through the media. The Bible is full of stories too. They speak to us of what is best and worst, hopeful and despairing, creative and destructive about human life and the experience of the sacred in its midst. Join us as we discover ourselves in the Bible Story.
Fee is $10/quarter for printing and curriculum subscription.

Women coming together to support each other in our faith journey and lives.
We have a permanent outdoor labyrinth painted on the patio which is open to all. The labyrinth has a single path that leads you into the center and back out again. Walking the labyrinth is symbolic of a pilgrimage or other spiritual journey and is usually done in prayer or meditation. We plan occasional events focusing on the labyrinth.
FRANCES WILLIAMSON LIBRARY
We are privileged to have an extremely well stocked and well organized library on site. Not only are there many books focusing on theology, the Bible, and spirituality, but there are also a lot of history resources and a nice collection of fiction. There is a self check-out system. The library is open to all parishioners.
