Adult Christian Formation Roundtable Class for the Fall

“This book is entitled Searching for Sunday, but it’s less about searching for a Sunday church and more about searching for Sunday resurrection.” This quote is from the forward of that book by Rachael Held Evans. It is a memoir of sorts about her faith journey and her struggle of longing for relationship with a faith community while living with her frustration and disappointment with the church. Reading one paragraph will have you laughing out loud at her interactions with people of faith and then a few paragraphs later you will cry as she longs for a faith community to call home. This study will begin September 8, 2019 during the Sunday morning education time. Some books have been ordered and you may reserve one or get more information by texting or calling David Starling at (850) 712-0977 or email dastarling@cox.net .

Lectionary Class

The Lectionary Class will resume in the fall to discover in the Gospels how Jesus leads us. The fall is green or ordinary time, but we will discover this time in the lectionary is anything but ordinary. Come and be a part of the discussion.
Led by Dick Hooper. This class will meet in the Parlor.

Sunday Centering Prayer Group (Ongoing)

Centering Prayer is a method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, in which we experience God’s presence within us.  We begin by taking a few minutes to go over the basic guidelines of the practice for anyone who is new.  We then sit together in the 20-minute prayer period, followed by a brief time for sharing and intercessory prayer.  All are welcome — newcomers and experienced practitioners.  This class meets in the Centering Prayer room on the administrative hallway.  The facilitator is Joan White.
