REGULARLY SCHEDULED EVENTS


Wednesday Night Spiritual Life Group – NEW BOOK: Genesis

This group meets at UCCVF 7:30-8:30 p.m.. This is a good time to join us as we begin with the "beginning" book of Genesis.  Each week we begin with prayer, read a portion of the story offering unique perspectives on God, on humanity, and the role of community and covenant.  We then we discuss what the story meant in its own time, how it informs our understandings of Jesus and his community, and how these stories can form and shape us in our time.  The stories of Genesis have greater power and potency than we perhaps knew in our childhood versions, and we will uncover some of this as we look at ancient symbols and metaphors, historical context, and more.  Pastor Michael facilitates the conversation.  Come and see!


Thursday Morning Spiritual Life Group – Book of Genesis

We begin with prayer together at 10:30 a.m., read a portion of the story of "beginnings" - perspectives on God, on humanity, and the role of community and covenant, and then we discuss what the story meant in its own time and how it may form and shape us in our time. The stories of Genesis have greater power and potency than we perhaps knew in our childhood versions, and we will uncover some of this as we look at ancient symbols and metaphors, historical context, and more.  We close with a prayer circle at 11:30 a.m.   Pastor Michael facilitates the conversation.  Come and see!


Grief Support Group

Pastor Michael leads a monthly Grief Recovery group here at UCC/VF for those who have suffered the loss of a loved one and are grieving. Please check the calendar for the next meeting time.
