Spiritual Life

We are currently forming Prayer Groups that will meet the rest of the summer.  Contact Pastor Chuck Shahan if you’re interested:  see “Contact Us” on this website.  

Worship.  11 AM Sundays.  Musically, we cover a wide range: old favorites, camp songs, spirituals, modern hymns, and praise choruses — not all on the same Sunday!  We usually follow the lectionary, a plan that lays out appropriate scriptures for each Sunday. Pastor’s sermons are written based on the wisdom of these scriptures. (You can sample a sermon here.)  The Order of Worship tends toward written liturgy, but during our prayer time, members of the congregation share joys and concerns verbally.  We follow the service with fellowship (snack) time and a potluck on the second Sunday of the month.

 

Learning groups:  

Adult Sunday School.  Meets at 10:00 A.M.  Usually talks about a page from “The Upper Room”.

Children’s Sunday School.  Children stay in worship through Children’s Time, then meet for age-appropriate learning activities.  Or, parents or accompanying adults can choose to have their children sit with them in worship. Sanctuary service audio is piped to classrooms.

Pastor’s Bible Study.  Wednesday, 5:00 PM.  We are following “The Story” in a series of videos. (This study leads right into the 6:00 PM Free Community Meal!)

Shorter-term Groups.  We’ve done a variety of things from the DISCIPLE Bible Study I, to Embracing Emergence Christianity, a video series by contemporary theologian Phyllis Tickle.  We often schedule short-term groups during particular seasons of the church, especially Advent (before Christmas) and Lent (before Easter).
