Religious/Spiritual Practice Groups

Let's go deep! We are experimenting with some small groups to explore spiritual/religious practices. Anyone is welcome to participate in as many or as few groups as they would like. Participants do not need to subscribe to any particular belief, only be interested in participating in the group with an open mind and heart. 


If you are interested in one or more groups, or have an additional idea for a group, please contact Rev. EB. 


Heart of the Chalice
Meets monthly via Zoom. The next Heart of the Chalice meeting will be Sunday, Nov. 8, 9:30 to 10:45 am via Zoom.
We are a small group of First Church congregants who gather monthly to support each other’s spiritual practices and to practice spiritual rituals together, such as meditation and chalice lighting. While we share a spiritual search for truth and meaning, we have no common creed. We listen deeply to what is in each person’s heart. We explore accessible readings, chosen by members—poems, short essays, and selections from various religious traditions. Members take turns with facilitation. We welcome you to join us for as often as you choose. Email to learn more. You can read the Guidelines for Heart of the Chalice Sharing here to get a sense of how the meetings go.

New Moon Ceremony
The next New Moon ceremony will be on Thursday, October 15, 2020 at 6:30 PM via Zoom

Join us for a simple ceremony to state our intentions for the new moon cycle and be witnessed by the assembled circle. We’ll be about an hour. All welcome.
