Sunday school
Sundays at 9:30 am

Illuminations | Room 203

The Illuminations class welcomes you to join us for a time of spiritual practice and community building as we seek out God’s light in our world. Each week, we’ll spend time in conversation getting to know one another, connecting with God, and considering how we live in community. We’ll explore different forms of reflection such as poetry, mindfulness, and prayer to better recognize the Holy in ourselves and one another. No previous experiences with contemplative spirituality needed! This class also requires no prep work, so feel free to drop in any Sunday. We meet from 9:30-10, making it a great option for those with other Sunday morning commitments. This summer class series is led by our Pastoral Intern, Amelia Britt and will meet in room 203 through August 27.

Summer Sunday school | Chapel

Rev. Courtney Willis will continue teaching Sunday school, based on the Formations literature this summer in person and on-line. All are welcome to attend their regular classes (if meeting) or join the chapel each Sunday.
