Small GroupA Journey Group is a small group of people who gather around a common focus, oriented toward some aspect of spiritual journey. Journey groups can “provide a vital center of Christian formation in the midst of congregational life. Enriching and strengthening faith, they offer companionship and guidance for the journey of transformation and equip members for engaging with God’s mission in the world.”
(From Tending the Center: A resource of the missional church from the Office on Congregational Life)  

Journey Groups begin each fall and continue through the spring of the following year.

Spiritual Journey Group for Women

“For inquiries or just to chat a bit call…” Contact Facilitator Eleanor B if interested.

The purpose of the Spiritual Journey Group is to honor this gathering as a place where we take Sacred Pause to be present to WHO WE ARE AS THE FEMININE EXPRESSION OF OUR CREATOR.

We share only what we choose, with no interruption or cross-talk This is the process of deep listening.  So if you’re the least bit called to this way of being…



Women’s Group

The Women’s Group is women [mostly adults/those with young children who would stay home for this meeting] that get together at coffee shops, discuss books, teach each other new crafts, commiserate.  Some activities have included visiting a member’s studio to throw pots together; another time jewelry making was highlighted.  The group tries to support one another and explore in a variety of ways.
