In three sessions we will discuss how we believe, the history of the UCC and what it means to become a member of this church.  It’s a great way to learn more about us and meet the wonderful folks who are interested in joining as well.

 

New members will be received in worship on November 17.  Child care is available upon request.  Please RSVP to Rev. Ann revann@fccmtc.com

Weekly Labyrinth Walks:

Wednesdays 6-8pm in the Sanctuary

Underground Church travels back to our earliest Christian roots.  We seek to recapture the excitement and community of Jesus's early followers through worship that is simple yet profound, communal yet personal, comforting yet inspiring.  We live the questions much as Jesus's friends did as they sought ways to transform the world through the simple acts of a shared and loving community. 


Worship is informal, but we engage through the reading of a sacred text, create space to share what is on our hearts, and share a simple and blessed communion meal of soup, salad, and bread, ending our evening with song and "Spiritual Take-Out." 


Come as you are...This gathering is about the transformative power of opening our homes and our hearts to the Holy Spirit and to each other.  Everyone is welcome!  

"An Evolution in Christianity" - A Three Part Study, Wednesdays, Oct 9, 23 & 30. from 7:30 - 9 pm in the Guild Room (Please RSVP)

We are experiencing a new spiritual awakening, Dr. Diana Butler Bass argues in Christianity After Religion. Having spent her career as a professor of history, culture, and the politics of religion, Dr. Bass explores the data that shows religious affiliation plummeting and interest in spirituality on the rise. She concludes there is great possibility in the midst of this instability.  A fresh, vital faith is emerging. 
 

Whether you are trying to get the pulse of our religious moment, interested in how we got here, or wondering where we're going next, join us.  This exploration will be led by Associate Pastor, Rev. John Rogers. Reading Diana Butler Bass's Christianity After Religion is recommended but not required. RSVPs are helpful for planning!  Contact Rev. John at john.rogers28@gmail.com
