Monday Friends in Faith

Looking for a new way to jump-start your week? Please join us on Monday mornings, 10:00-11:00 in the Lea Room for a brief meditation time followed by lively conversation of a spiritual nature. Our discussion topic varies each week, and we end the hour by remembering the people on the parish prayer list. Everyone is welcome! Email Elizabeth Clemmitt with any questions at Elizabeth Clemmitt.

This friendly faith discussion group meets in the Lea Room of the Church House from 10:00-11:00AM.

“I do not know a better way to start a busy week! Our conversations, meditation, discussion and prayers for others in our Congregation set a caring and responsible spark within us. We are indeed a testimony to one another.” – Sherry Gormanous

“Time spent with a group of people who care about each other is a gift from God – the friendship, support and appreciation I feel at Friends in Faith renews my soul and balances my typically crazy week of life with my wonderful husband and three teenage boys.” – Tika Walsh

Questions? Feel free to ask Nancy Challenger, Elizabeth Clemmitt, Sherry Gormanous, Nina Gray, Heath Missner, Ginny Packer or Tika Walsh. Or please reach out to Elizabeth Clemmitt.


Tuesday Book Group

We have decided on our next book: The Time Is Now, by Joan Chittister, a Catholic nun, author and speaker. This is the first time we will be reading something specifically about the Trinity. Won’t you join us?

Please join us! Book Group meets every Monday afternoon 1:00-2:00PM in the McClain Room. We typically read one chapter per week. Questions? Email Melissa Durbin.


Centering Prayer

The Centering Prayer group meets Tuesdays, 2:00-3:00PM in the Lea Room at Church House. Centering Prayer is a Christian form of silent meditation which alleviates stress, focuses the mind, and deepens our experience of God’s presence within us. Please join us for twenty minutes of peaceful meditation followed by discussion and readings about Centering Prayer. Feel free to come occasionally or come every week. Contact Elizabeth Clemmitt with any questions at Elizabeth Clemmitt or (312) 618-1238.
