 Cultivating Gratitude Gals  is an OPEN group for women who come together WEEKLY to broaden our spiritual lives and share our spiritual journeys with each other. We are grateful for the opportunity to see how Christian authors and sages look beneath the veneer to see the heart of Christ in all creation. The paths they choose are always full of wonder and mystery and are aiding us as we continue our own spiritual growth. Mondays at 10:00am, Sandy Hughes coordinator.


 EfM - Education for Ministry Lay persons face the difficult and often subtle task of interpreting the richness of the church's faith in a complex and confusing world. They need a theological education which supports their faith and also teaches them to express that faith in day-to-day events. EfM is a four year extensive program of the School of Theology of the University of the South, in which participants study the Old and New Testaments, church history, and twentieth century theology. Preregistration required. Contact Sherry Beale to register sbealespes@yahoo.com.

 Grace Gathering is a Women's Spirituality Group that meets every other Tuesday in someone’s home to explore spiritual journey. Do you have questions? Does your soul need the nourishing support of other women? Join us every other Tuesday night as we gather in covenant relationship and open our hearts and minds to each other and explore the mysteries around us.  Contact Anne Blackmon or Fran  Phares (aeblackmon@hotmail.com or fmphares@hotmail.com) for more information.

 Centering Prayer Join us in the Chapel from 6:30 pm -7:30 pm on Tuesday evenings for Centering Prayer.  This ancient practice dates back to early monasticism and encourages silence for a nearer presence of God.   We will start with Lectio Divina, a way of reading the Scriptures where we gradually let go of our own agenda and open our hearts and mind to God.  A guided meditation and 20 or so minutes of silence will follow.  Don’t be intimidated by the process!  It’s nothing more than taking the time to clear your mind and be present.  Led by Laura Robert. 


Adult and Children's formation opportunities are available at Wednesday Link which will resume on September 12th.

Full Wednesday Link schedule and information about Children's Formation on Wednesday evening will be available late summer.
