Christian Yoga for Women — All women welcome, all levels. Simply bring a mat, yourself and a twoonie! Meeting at the church on Mondays from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m., Wednesdays from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m.
Coffee Break — This is for women of any age and stage and we meet for sharing, caring and Bible study. Meeting Wednesday mornings from 9:30 – 11:00 at the church.
Newcomers and Old Friends Group — We will be reading "The Gospel According to Starbucks" by Leonard Sweet. Christians have much to learn about faith as a lived experience, not a thought experiment. Rational faith—the form of Christianity that relies on argument, logic, and apologetics to establish and defend its rightness—has failed miserably in meeting people where they live. So how do we get to meeting people where they live? In answering that question, let’s examine a tangible and compelling example: the philosophy and practices of Starbucks Coffee Company. Let’s relearn how to meet God in an irresistible experience, how to trade religious duty for spiritual passion, and how to engage in the life of faith in close relationship with other wayfarers.
Open Small Group held monthly on the last Sunday of the month after church and includes a potluck lunch. Topic of study will be discussed at the first meeting. Childcare available if required. First meeting will be on September 29th at the Valenta's home.
Reading the Bible: Space to Explore Questions — Reading the Bible is simple and also challenging, especially in our times. The Bible is many things to different people: an ancient book for modern life; many books telling one story; a roadmap for life; inspiration; the word of God. Peter Enns, a Biblical scholar, also had questions and openly explores them in his book, How the Bible Really Works: In Which I Explain How an Ancient, Ambiguous, and Diverse Book Leads Us to Wisdom Rather Than Answers – and Why That’s Good News. This small group will use this book as a launching pad for discussion on how we read and use the Bible in our own lives. The goal of exploring our questions is to deepen our love for Bible reading and our ability to use it well in our own life journeys.
Young (and Young at Heart) Couples Group — For couples who want to engage in meeting other couples in the church; connecting and sharing food, ideas and fellowship. Meets Sunday after church for a meal starting in mid-October.
