TUESDAYS, 7 pm

Interfaith Book Study

Join St. C's Interfaith Partnerships ministry in reading and discussing "Holy Envy: Finding God in the Faith of Others" by Barbara Brown Taylor. Her memoir on teaching students about the world's religions at a small Georgia college changed their understanding of faith, as well as her own. The group will meet Tuesdays at 7 pm, starting Apr. 28 via Zoom videoconferencing. Contact Andrew Trotter for call-in instructions.

TUESDAYS, 7 pm

Tuesday Evening Book Study

Join us for prayer and discussion about "Made for Goodness" by Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter Mpho Tutu, an Episcopal priest, Tuesdays at 7 pm (May 26-June 30). In the midst of the hardship and anxiety of pandemic, we'll explore faith from the perspective of these leaders who discovered hope amid the tragic legacy of apartheid. Despite humanity's capacity for evil and cruelty, goodness is the innate quality which God calls us to choose for ourselves. Contact David Griswold for call-in instructions.

TUESDAYS, 8 pm

Love in the Time of Coronavirus

You're invited to join a new book group focusing on loving partnerships amidst the backdrop of our "Lockdown." Reading "We Do: Saying Yes to a Relationship of Depth, True Connection, and Enduring Love" by Stan Tatkin, this group will carve out a small space within this pause to reflect on our committed, loving partnerships and use it as an opportunity to become more conscious about how and why we choose couplehood. Join the Rev. Amy Molina-Moore and Stacy Notaras Murphy, MS, NCC, a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) specializing in couples therapy and trauma treatment, Tuesdays at 8 pm May 19 - June 16, via  Zoom videoconferencing. Contact: Amy Molina-Moore for call-in instructions.

WEDNESDAYS, 10 AM

Wednesday Morning Study Group

Join us as we explore the Acts of the Apostles, the compelling account of the origins of the Jesus Movement. We will meet the ordinary, yet dynamic men and women of "the Way" who first spread the Gospel, and reflect on how Jesus' reconciling work continues in and through our lives. Our resource will be "A Journey Through Acts," published by Forward Movement. Contact David Griswold for call-in instructions. 

WEDNESDAYS, 7-8 PM

Faith for All of It

This spring, the Rev. Dr. Joshua Daniel will offer a discussion series on how faith connects to the whole of our lives, Wednesdays, 7-8 pm through June 3 via Zoom teleconferencing. Joshua shares, “Faith is more than knowing the context and content of Holy Scripture, more than just reciting the creeds. Faith connects us to everything.” Click here to sign up.
