On Hiatus Until September:

Underground Church, Outdoors

in the FCC Memorial Garden

(Enter from either the back door from the parking lot or the ramp on the Plymouth St. side)

Underground Church is a unique and dynamic gathering that combines the intimacy of Jesus' early community with creative and inventive worship experiences.  In the warmth and safety of community we explore the scriptures, live out the questions through discussion,  and share innovative rituals that bring us closer to each other and to our still-speaking God.  Together we create the unity of spirit that helps us find God's presence in the messy and beautiful experience of living today.  

Labyrinth Walks


Weekly: Wednesdays 11am-1pm in the Sanctuary


and FIRST Saturday of each month: 11am-1pm

(There will be no labyrinth walks during the  month of August)

Take your soul for a walk on the labyrinth.  We are pleased to offer labyrinth walks each Wednesday in the mid-day as a chance to connect with your soul in our beautiful sanctuary. 

Social distancing will be observed with one walker at a time on the labyrinth and specially designated pews for prayer and meditation. We look forward to welcoming you back.

 

The labyrinth is an ancient spiritual tool , a mode of “walking prayer” that invites us to go deeper in our walk with God.  Our labyrinth, modeled on one in Chartes Cathedral in France, sits as the center of our Sanctuary, a constant metaphor for our spiritual lives.  Just like the labyrinth, our lives are not linear, but filled with twists and turns.  Sometimes we make great progress, and other times we feel we are going backwards.  But if we trust in the path we will find ourselves in the center -- the heart of God.

 

All are welcome to take their souls out for a healing walk... no experience necessary!  Check out this lovely write up on Baristanet from the Spring 2014.

 

Watch this video to find out more about walking the labyrinth. If you’ve never done so come out one Wednesday evening and give it a try. It is a wonderful way to nourish your soul and spend some quiet time in prayer or meditation.

 

On Hiatus Until September 6!

Slow Motion Adult Bible Study Via Zoom: Mondays at 7:30pm

Our method is to take our time and dig deeply into Scripture, bringing in cultural, historical, theological, and linguistic backgrounds and resources. We utilize Queries (questions posed for consideration and opening, not to garner answers) and cross-referencing. (There are occasional dives down theological or linguistic rabbit holes.) Participants are encouraged to have their favorite translation of the Bible with them.
