We encourage all members and friends to find at least one place to nurture your spiritual life. Maybe it’s an adult education class, maybe it’s a spirituality group, or maybe it’s a place of service that feeds you. But find at least one place where you are fed and take in the grace that God gives freely so that you may also exhale the grace of God.
We offer many classes and small groups to get involved with. Explore the opportunities below for more information about weekly, monthly and occasional gatherings. If you have questions or ideas for new classes, groups or fellowship, contact Rachel Cunningham.
Using a few words or an image to bring us to a place of stillness, the Meditation Circle sits together in a circle of contemplative silence, ending with prayer. Through stilling our minds and opening our hearts, we find community with one another and with God. Plan to arrive in the Church House (on the first floor) a few minutes before 9:45 as we begin our time together promptly (Meditation Circle moves to 9 a.m. between Memorial Day and Labor Day). For more information or to be added to an email list for the Meditation Circle, contact McKay Jenkins, [email protected]. This group meets year-round.
Education hour on Sundays at 12:15 pm offers classes for adults to come learn, question and explore. Adults remain in the Assembly Room for discussions on a variety of topics and their intersections with our faith. This class is a hybrid offering. Use the worship link to join virtually. View the schedule to learn more about each series. Education hour does not take place Memorial Day through Labor Day.
Gather for prayer, study, and reflection over Zoom. All are welcome to join at any time. View the calendar for more detail.
Join us for our weekly, year-round Prayer Ministry and Worship Service. God’s touch upon our lives often takes the form of a call to pray so that we ourselves become a new opening for God’s power in the world. In the simple act of praying together – joining together to raise our minds and hearts to God – community is strengthened. Pausing together, saying aloud or holding in silence the prayers of our own hearts, of our community and of the world we feel closer to one another and to God. The prayer service will meet virtually via Zoom for the foreseeable future. View the calendar event for more details. For questions and information, contact Rachel Cunningham.

Theology is really just a fancy word for “God-talk:” the way we think and talk about our religious beliefs. What happens when we take that conversation out of the church and into a bar?
Join us in the Auxiliary Bar at Guilford Hall Brewery to keep our conversation private and maintain better social distancing. Just head through the main restaurant and out to the beer garden – you’ll find us out there! Join us for an informal check-in and discussion of theology. Come have a drink (or not) and talk about God, the universe, and everything. Contact Michele Ward for more information.
Several times a year our clergy and the membership committee offer classes on what it means to reaffirm your faith and join our congregation as an active member. If you are interested in exploring membership, contact Andrew Foster Connors.
At least once a year, our clergy team up with clergy at neighboring Corpus Christi Catholic Church and Memorial Episcopal Church to discuss different approaches to theological topics such as ordination, communion or confronting evil.
