NEW PROGRAM: River Walk with God Thursdays from 6-8pm May 13, 20, 27 & June 10,17, 24. 6 Sessions: spiritual practices grow us in our spiritual journey in this 6-session Series for mature 12’s-adults. We will learn to think about how God works in our lives and do spiritual practices such as labyrinths, letters to and from God, responding to God’s word through art and percussion. Each session stands on its own but more than one session or the entire series is best.
The Holy Spirit is our constant companion as we navigate life’s journey. Our parents, siblings, friends and children have important roles and we would not understand ourselves without them. God is always with us no matter what. Imagine your life as a river with bubbly currents, still spaces, rapids, dams and bends in the path-even waterfalls. Working together we will craft our “river-stories”, work with sacred texts and grow deeper in our journey together with God.
First Church Scholarships are awarded on Sunday, June 13th.
