This group meets on the first Thursday of the month at 6:30pm, to explore various practices and to support one another in the development of our personal practice life.
Do you sit quietly in meditation? Does running quiet your mind? Is the laundry a sacred act? Do you hear God speaking to you in the garden? These are but a variety of Spiritual Practices some members have expressed.
It's conversation. It's bonding. It's learning what you believe and learning that it's OK to have doubts. It's laughter, questioning, and pondering the questions of our time through the lens of the Christian Faith. The year begins with a pilgrimage to New York City, and ends with a grand celebration on Pentecost with the traditional laying-on-of-hands.
The Genesis Circle is a fellowship group open to all women - young and old. This group generally meets once a month with special guests presenting short programs. Please check the programs for events that might be of interest to you. All meetings will be held at the church unless otherwise stated. Refreshments are provided.
