Meditation Group
Sundays, 10:00 am to 10:25 am · Room 11.
Meditation has been important in many spiritual traditions through the centuries. If you are a committed meditator or would like to learn how to meditate, come Sunday mornings before the service at 10:00 am for a group meditation session. See for yourself how this technique can improve your health - mind, body and soul.
Mission and Outreach
Truth and Reconciliation Conversation
Apr 02, Sunday, 12:00 pm · Club Room.
The M & O Pod is a gathering of members of the congregation to engage in conversation about our current and future directions for Mission and Outreach.
The focus of this gathering will be on building relationship with indigenous people. How are we called to reach out to indigenous people within our community? How can we embrace reconciliation within the life of our congregation?
