Our goal is to intentionally design and shape our ministry journey with a monthly theme. Themed ministry is a tool that adds vitality to our journey by aligning our conversation across all the different ministries in the church. This allows us to essentially “travel together” as a community of seekers, sharpening our relationship to one another and to life through common reflection. For example, our teachers are encouraged to weave the same monthly concept into their classroom lessons that the adults are hearing from the pulpit in worship.
The Chalice Circles (which is our small group ministry) is another chance to explore these ideas in-depth with adult peers. Our “Mindful Meetings” will begin all of our team meetings with the same monthly focus to connect and energize us before we enter into our particular church work. We believe that thematic ministry can be spiritually deepening, and that we could even have more fun, more ease, and more connection among us as we explore them! What could be better?
Our door is always open!
Jan 6. 2019, 10am: Giving … after giving season
Holiday season is often equated with giving — gifts to family and friends, as well as broader generosities to our fellow humans in need. How can we carry this practice forward in a loving, caring and manageable way? MJ will share thoughts on the spiritual practice of caring and giving, starting within our own community.
Guest speaker: MJ Erickson-Eger is former geologist, retired school psychologist, and long time musician, who enjoys considering multiple points of view, from data-driven science to emotional experience and the arts. A big picture thinker to a fault, MJ is known for her off-the-wall questions which often elicit laughter or quizzical dog looks.
Jan 13, 2019, 10am: Leaning In To What’s Possible, Part I
Each new year, we are challenged to look at our commitments. Sometimes we are challenged to deepen and evolve existing commitments, or make brand new commitments, or withdraw from and end certain commitments. Sometimes we are challenged to shed our old ideas about commitment or open our mind about new approaches to commitment. Come explore the key factors in deciding which direction to go. Rev J speaks.

Jan 27, 2019, 10am: Leaning In To What’s Possible, Part II
Last summer we articulated a vision for the congregation: Growing a progressive spiritual family to build a just and loving world. How has setting this vision of who we most deeply are, influenced how we do ministry? How has it motivated us to lean into more of what is possible for us as a spiritual community now? Rev J speaks
