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've provided sessions such as book studies, video studies, ecological concerns, and presentations by invited speakers and our own members. For a look at our past offerings, click here.
FEBRUARY & MARCH 2021
February 24-March 24 | Lenten Book Study | We will read and gather (via Zoom) in small groups to discuss How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi. This book was selected by the Racial Justice Task Force and Adult Faith Formation. This is such an important topic of study at this time, please consider reading the book independently if you do not want to join in a discussion group. The book is available from several online sources.
ARC Retreat Center | Action, Reflection, Celebration
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 often go on retreat during Lent, sometimes also in the fall. Recent retreat themes have included Sabbath, Forgiveness, Exploring the Mountain and Valley Experiences of Faith, and Security: Illusions and Imagination.
Interest Groups | Ongoing connections based in commonalities
The Women's Group 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 the church office for more information (651-224-5809).
