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 adultdeepening@upbrookline.org if you can attend or speak with Debra H., Adult Deepening team convener or Pastor Amy Norton if you have additional ideas and interests.
