Spiritual Practices Circle

Spiritual PracticesWinter is a perfect time to asses our personal spiritual practices, to notice how they have changed over the years, and to explore fresh new ideas for touching the heart of spiritual depth. Beginning mid-month, you are invited to join me in a Spiritual Practices Circle.We will explore ancient methods of prayer such as The Examen and The Four Stranded Garland. Additionally, we will learn from present day prophets like Mary Oliver and Anne LaMotte.“Kingdom people” don’t happen by accident. Their living is bound by a common thread of intentionality. The great mystic Thomas Merton once said, “The only difference between prayer and the rest of our lives is intention.” As we enter afresh a new year, may we renew our intentions to route ourselves in the practices of our faith.In doing so perhaps we will find greater strength and courage to be living examples of love. ~ Rev. Curran

8:30 a.m. Quiet Reflective Service

November 17, 2019
08:30 AM / 09:30 AM

The early morning service (a more contemplative tone) continues!! But we have changed the time from 8 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.  The liturgy for the 8:30 a.m. service will be similar to the 10:30 a.m. celebration with the same sermon and texts, and Communion on the first Sunday of the month. The 8:30 a.m. service will not have musicians, except on rare occasion, with longer spaces for silence and reflection built into the flow of the service. There will not be Fellowship Time afterwards unless that evolves on its own.

10:30 a.m. Sunday Message and More

November 17, 2019

WELCOME!

As a community of faith, we know some measure of God's grace, compassion, mercy, justice and peace, and it is our desire to share that love with you regardless of your age, race, gender, marital status, physical condition, sexual orientation, ethnic or economic background.

Large print worship bulletins are available in binders at the back of the sanctuary. Our ushers are happy to assist you.

Please join us for fellowship following the worship service.  ~ Rev. Dr. Curran Reichert
