Our Small Groups
Periodically throughout the year, Elder George Bradlau and Pastor Mary Beth facilitate a conversation about a work of literature. In the early summer of 2022, we offered a discussion around Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird. In the fall of 2022, we read and discussed Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Our next session will begin on Thursday, April 20, 2023, where we will read together Maya Angelou's I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.
All are welcome to join, whether or not you are an official member of the church. Joining this group is a wonderful way to get to know folks in the church in a more intimate setting. We meet on Thursday evenings, from 6:00pm-7:30pm.
You don’t have to be a literature expert, either! For more information, please email George Bradlau at email@example.com.
Women’s Bible Study
This lively group of women meets the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 12:00 pm in the Church Resource Room. The group explores stories in scripture using a timely and accessible curriculum published by Presbyterian Women. In 2023, we are studying Eugenia Gamble's excellent reflection on the Ten Commandments: "Love Carved in Stone." For more information, please email Lisa at Lisa_a_gray@outlook.com.
Elders Katie Rienzo and Abbie Conlon, along with Pastor Mary Beth, were thrilled to offer a poetry group for our church and community during the season of Lent 2023 (the Thursdays of March 2-30, from 6:30 to 7:30pm). Over the month, we covered themes such as grief, love, redemption, doubt/faith, beauty, and identity. We plan on offering poetry again in the future, as the group was a beautiful way to explore our faith and grow as a community of believers (and sometimes, doubters!). Stay tuned!! Questions? Please email Mary Beth at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you prefer images over words? If so, there’s a place for you! Our painting group meets every Tuesday at 10:00am. We have experts to beginners… all are welcome! Join us! Want to learn more? Please email Kathleen at email@example.com.
Advent Small Group
During the season of Advent (the weeks before Christmas), our church offers a weekly small group experience that includes prayer, time with scripture, and a delve into themes of the season. All are welcome to join, whether or not an official member of the church. Please contact Mary Beth at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to learn more.
