Step Into Adult Religious Exploration!

We want you to be engaged in the life of the Fellowship in ways that nurture your spirit and assist in your ongoing growth and development.

‘Stepping Stones’ is our way of encouraging you to take another step down your life path. Have you taken an introductory class such as A Chosen Faith book discussion? Then try something new. If you’ve been serving on a committee but want to know more about lay leadership, take a class on congregational or church dynamics. If you would like to offer to facilitate a course, please suggest it!

Contact Iva King, the Lay Minister of Lifespan Development for more information.

Some Stepping Stones to Consider in 2019

Books about Religion, a Discussion Group

This winter, the group begins with a discussion of The Islamic Jesus by Mustafa Akyol facilitated by Vivian Sellers on February 4. . This will be the subject for five sessions; the group will then pick another book, and someone familiar with that book will facilitate. The group will meet every Monday evening from 7:30 until 9:00 p.m. in the Ocean Room (first room on the right as you walk in the RE wing door). Everyone is welcome. Diverse spiritual or religious beliefs will enhance the discussions. Sign up at the Stepping Stones Table or contact Vivian Sellers (vpsellers@gmail.com).
