Spiritual Practices Summer at the Meeting House 2018

Spiritual Practices Summer at the Meeting House – Join Us-All Are Welcome!

This summer, our worship series will explore a wide variety of practices that help to ground, center, delight, inspire, and strengthen us in times of peace and times of anxiety or stress.  Summer services will be held Fellowship Hall and will continue through Labor Day (September 2nd). Come join us every Sunday at 10:30am for spiritual depth and exploration together!

During the summer in RE the children and youth will explore what spirituality and spiritual practices mean to us. We will have several guests come speak about what spirituality means to them and also do some personal reflections. We will meet throughout the summer beginning on the 1st of July.
