Adult Deepening Ministry Team Needs Your Ideas!

Whether you're a newcomer or long-timer, the United Parish Adult Deepening Ministry Team hopes you will come to a dinner meeting on Monday, September 16 from 7:00-8:30pm in the Parlor to brainstorm and prioritize programming ideas for 2019-2020.

Fall Adult programming is already getting started: the weekly Sunday 10 AM Bible Study begins September 8.

Over the summer we have gathered many great ideas for one-time or multi-session programming. Here is a sampling of the possibilities suggested for programming that we will discuss, distill and augment with your ideas on September 16:

  • Quarterly "Prayer Retreats" in the Saturday morning format launched last year or other timeframes
  • Focused Bible studies on the Old Testament, Jesus' Parables, and gender/sexuality issues in scripture
  • Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson, and other "stretching into justice" themed books on diversity, inclusion, segregation and greening issues
  • Advent devotional writing workshops

On September 16, let's enjoy a meal together and be realistic, creative and focused about how best to help United Parish adults deepen in faith and spirituality this year! Please RSVP to if you can attend or speak with Debra H., Adult Deepening team convener or Pastor Amy Norton if you have additional ideas and interests.
