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!


DECEMBER 2017

December 6 & 13 | “Watch: Exploring Advent Devotionals”

For people of faith, telling time always involves more than a swift glance at digits on a screen or a dial. To know it’s half past three
is simple. But to know the hour of judgment and grace is complex. It requires additional effort. For Advent’s hour is not where the hands on the dial are pointing. It’s where the signs of the times are pointing—pointing me and you.

Jesus implored his disciples: “Watch, pay attention, stay wide awake, for the hour is coming…” (Mark 13: 35). As we watch and wait for Christ’s coming in the season of Advent, join us for two sessions exploring the “Watch” 2017 Advent Devotional produced by the Stillspeaking Writers’ Group of the United Church of Christ. These thought-provoking reflections will engage us as we watch and wait together in this time of expectation and hope.


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 Exploring the Mountain and Valley Experiences of Faith. The theme for our next retreat (February 9-11, 2018) will be Security: Illusions and Imagination.


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. This email address is being protected from spambots.
