Adults ~ Journeying together toward deeper faith, justice and love for all

Journey of Faith

Our Journey of Faith program began in 2008 as part of the beginning of our congregation’s revitalization. This program combines adult Christian Education with opportunities to share our faith with others.  Over the years we have provided sessions such as book studies, video studies, invited speakers, ecological concerns, and presentations by our own members.  For a view of some of our past offerings, please click here.

Please consider joining us on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-7:30 as we explore questions of our faith!


MAY 2017

May 17 | Ancient Stones of Israel and Palestine | In Janury, SPUCC members Becky & Bob Galkiewicz traveled to Israel and Palestine as part of  a group of 12 from the Minnesota Conference UCC, witnessing both the ancient stones (archaeological remains) and living stones (human voices speaking to faith in today's world) in these lands. This session will feature pictures of the Holy Sites and secular places they visited, including Bethlehem, Jerusalem, the Dead Sea area, the River Jordan, towns around the Sea of Galilee, the Mount of the Beatitudes, and Nazareth--walking (perhaps) on stones that Jesus and the prophets trod!

May 24 | Living Stones of Israel and Palestine | It’s important for us as world citizens, Christians, and Americans to understand what life is really like in Israel and Palestine. In this session, Becky and Bob share with us conversations they had with both Jewish and Palestinian “living stones,” including their trip-long guides, two Palestinian Christians.


ARC Retreat Center ~ Action, Reflection, Celebration

Folks on retreat in 2013

The ARC Retreat Center is located in a beautiful white pine forest just an hour north of the twin cities. ARC is “a retreat center operated by a residential community, rooted in Christian tradition, emphasizing the values of simplicity, justice and healing, mercy and prayer, serving individuals and groups seeking time apart, rest and spiritual renewal." We go on retreat during Lent and in the fall each year. Recent retreat themes have included Sabbath, Forgiveness, and most recently in February 2017, Exploring the Mountain and Valley Experiences of Faith. 

Interest Groups ~ ongoing connections based in commonalities

Men's Group

Join us on the first Sunday of the month. We have a light breakfast and gathering time beginning at 9 am in the Fireside Room. Tom Davis facilitates this group with a little help from his friends. 

Women's Group

The Women's Group began in 1994 as Working Women — a group that engaged in social gatherings and service work together. The group now includes women in their early 20s through 90s who are employed, underemployed, managing households, and retired. The group gathers for a 6 pm dinner at a local restaurant on the first Monday of each month and periodically sponsors a Sunday Morning Fair Trade Coffee Hour with a theme. They also provide Christmas gifts for our homebound members and were the original planters of the Peace Garden in front of the church. Contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
