Summer Groups

Summer may be here, but there are still groups to join at First Church!

Summer Bible Study – Join us in discussing the Book of Acts this summer.

Meetings will be held in person in the cool air-conditioned parlor and on Zoom (for you vacationing folk!). We will meet on the following Mondays at 10 AM:

  • June 3  – Acts 1-7: Birth of the Church
  • July 1 – Acts 8-12: Life within the Jesus movement
  • August 5 – Acts 13-20: The mission of the Church
  • September 9 – Acts 21-28: Paul’s Arrest

Monthly Work Day – July 16 & August 20

Each month on the 3rd Tuesday from 10 AM – 12 PM come and work on projects for various skills depending who shows up, what needs to be done, or the skill sets of those involved (building maintenance, cleaning, or even filing!).

Yarning to Care – July 22 & August 26

YtC will meet in the Parlor at 1 PM on July 22nd and Aug 26th. Contact the office to be added to the distribution list for reminders and additional information. If anyone would like to join by Zoom, let the office know. 

YtC is a group of fiber artists which meets monthly to create prayer shawls and baby blankets. These items go to those who are ill or in bereavement and to the babies who are baptized at FCCR. You can also join us just for good conversation. 

Let’s Talk – July 9 & August 13

Our monthly conversation group meets on the 2nd Tuesday of the month in the Parlor at 1:30 PM. All are welcome to join in the conversation! This month we will be discussing the Psalms (what are they anyway?) and are invited to bring our favorite psalm to share.

Women ‘n Stitches

WnS is wrapping up the Dress Around the World project. We will be donating more than twenty dresses to this cause. WnS will go on hiatus for the summer since Room 17 is not air conditioned. 

Please contact the office to be added to the distribution list for news of the September meeting. Any ideas for a new charity-of-the-year are welcome! 

Mindful Meditation – Some Sunday Afternoons

Mindful Meditation will meet periodically on Sundays at 4PM in the Parlor. This is a self-led group, using our own experiences, and resources from teachers and guest leaders.

Yoga at Church – Some Tuesdays

Gentle yoga continues on Tuesday nights at 4:15 in the Music Room. Please bring a yoga mat, block, blanket, or whatever yoga accessory you have. If you’re not on the contact list, please reach out in case classes are cancelled due to summer scheduling or heat.
