Our adult formation ministry is formed around three main components: The Way (3 focuses of the Christian life – faith, Bible and spiritual practices); ChristCare groups (a wide diversity of affinity groups); and SoulSprings (a variety of classes and special events). These are usually offered in 3 sessions throughout the year, fall, winter and spring. If you have questions, please contact Rev. Clarissa Fuentes, Associate Pastor.
Take a brief time out from any stress in your life. Learn to relax and let go.
Learn mindfulness of your body through yoga! This all-levels-class will explore alignment, the use of props, and how to work safely with the body while calming the mind. Please bring a mat (and a block if you have one.) Donation of $40 for 8 classes or $5 drop-in, free for those in need. Proceeds from this class go to elder-support.
We will continue our Bible/book study format with a great group of guys for lively discussions!
We are a group of women who enjoy delving deeply into what it means to live as a person of faith in this ever-changing world. We have weekly lively discussions on our chosen topic and welcome new members! This season we will be reading the book, Give Them Money.
The Renovare Group (renovare means renewal) is an ongoing group which gathers weekly to consider our basic and deeper questions on faith and discipleship. We are reading The Call, by Adam Hamilton, which is about the Apostle Paul and his journeys. We are also reading some in “Acts” and Paul’s letters. Although we are in the middle of our study, we welcome you. We take more than a week on each chapter so we can discuss in-depth. Each week we pray for each other, sharing concerns and praises. We hand out grocery bags for the Food Bank each month after worship.
Sisters! is one of the original ChristCare groups at EUMC. We are always ready to welcome new members. This season we will study Pilgrimage into the Last Third of Life by Jane Thibault and Richard Morgan. Many of our members have reached this demarcation and those who have not considered that they will eventually! As the above is designed as a seven week study, our second one will be I’ve Been Thinking by Maria Shriver. The members of this group take turns leading the study sessions, offering devotions, and providing a simple treat like cookies or cupcakes. We support each other by sharing joys, concerns, and prayer requests.
All interested ladies are invited to join this lively discussion group, which also includes supportive sharing. We began a study of Adam Hamilton’s Making Sense of the Bible: Rediscovering the Power of Scripture Today in September and will be meeting weekly..
This quarter we will be reading and discussing Eager to Love - The Alternative Way of Francis of Assisi. We meet the first and third Sunday evenings and with the first meeting on October 15. We share a simple meal of soup, bread, and cookies and the hosts will facilitate the discussion questions located in the back of the book. Please join us for a great time of food, discussion, fellowship, and prayer!
