IN THE ROOM WHERE IT HAPPENS
Join Deacon Deborah for this class. Mondays, 7:00pm, March 7-April 11. Please watch the musical "Hamilton" to discuss themes in this musical, what our faith tells us about those themes, and how it informs our own ministry or faith journey. REGISTER HERE.
THE WAY OF LOVE
Join postulant Nancy Gill via zoom on Tuesdays at 7:30pm (March 8 - April 12). Nancy will facilitate this six week discussion that ties the Easter Vigil readings to the seven practices of the Way of Love (Turn, Pray, Learn, Bless, Rest, Worship, Go). Drawing on the ancient practice of setting aside Lent as a period of study and preparation for living as a Christian disciple, this curriculum encourages participants to reflect on salvation history; walk toward the empty tomb; and embrace the transforming reality of love, life, and liberation.
