Wholeness. That is what we pray for when we gather as Christ’s church. Wholeness is about experiencing God’s gift of grace as fully as possible. The pace of our frenzied, anxious, and divisive world rarely provides the opportunity to stop, recalibrate our lives, and be renewed.
(w)Holy Wednesdays, offered monthly beginning in September, will gather us together in order to nurture our whole, holy selves: spiritual, social, emotional, intellectual, and physical. A vibrant expression of our community life will both enliven and nurture us as we gather each month.
People of all ages are invited to gather around food, share a moment of reflection, and then move into one of several activities. Our first (w)Holy Wednesday will be September 11. The evening will begin at 5:30 p.m., and will conclude at 8 p.m. The food will be provided for us by Chef Jeff Catering; (Age 0-3: free; age 4-grade 5: $6; Grade 6-Adult: $8) reserve your meal by signing up by 10:00 am Monday online here or if you don’t have internet access you can sign-up at the sign up center or call the church office by 10:00 am on Monday. (We do need to know if you are coming. If the cost is prohibitive, speak to any of the staff.)
A tentative schedule for September 11 is:
6:30 Break outs:
Gentle Movement and Meditation led by Pastor Jeff
Psalms for Spiritual Growth led by Pastor Jay
Service project led by Deacon Lauren
Confirmation Orientation for Parents and Students
Sunday School Leader Orientation
Conversation and Coloring (for all ages!)
High School Homework & Games
Come for any part or for all of the evening! Child care will be provided. Bring your whole and holy selves to church on Wednesday, September 11, and also on October 9 and November 13.
