Belong

We long for moments to reconnect with ourselves and one another. We believe that God works within us when we’re in relationship with one another – sharing our joys and concerns, wrestling with doubt, and challenging one another to grow. Caring for those in our church who are grieving, hospitalized, ill or dealing with a major life crisis. Every time we gather together and lead with our hearts, leaning in with vulnerability and intention,  we form our faith here at South Church. Consider yourself invited to everything!

March date TBA Theology on Tap The Bible does not specifically mention Lent, and the early New Testament Church did not observe it. The Bible does teach the importance of fasting and self-examination, but it does not teach a 40-day period called Lent or an Ash Wednesday of putting ashes on the forehead. What does this time mean for you? 7:00pm at Caffe Nero

Date TBA Faith Forum continues the video/discussion exploring the connections between modern science and Christian spirituality. Join us for a cup of coffee and conversation. Facilitators:  Bill Schroeder, Dave VanArsdale, Christina Ouimet, and others. 9:15am in the Library
