Small Group Ministry at First Church
Sunday, February 12, 9:00 AM, Parish Room
Small group ministries are now up and running. We have two groups meeting on Sundays after church, one that meets before church and a fourth group that meets on Wednesday afternoons. In these facilitated groups, participants agree to engage with support rather than debate, to speak from the heart as well as the intellect, and to care for each other by keeping personal matters confidential and following up in ways that are comfortable. Groups gather to build trust, not to carry out tasks.
If you are curious about small group ministry, consider attending a drop-in session that will meet on the second Sunday of each month. We will meet for about 1½ hours, and the topic for February will be Vocation. If you have any questions, contact Nancy Pasquier at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“What is a circle of trust? It is the kind of carefully created space that invites the soul to make itself known. This kind of space where we can practice the paradox of ‘being alone together,’ a space that welcomes our inwardness even as it connects us to the gifts and challenges of community, and to the larger world.” - Parker J. Palmer from A Hidden Wholeness.
