We attend a movie, usually the fourth Friday of the month (or fourth Tuesday when the weather is nice!) and discuss the spiritual themes that emerge. Pay what you can. Follow our Facebook page or contact our minister to let him know you are interested so he can purchase tickets and confirm details with you.
Our craft/study group takes place Thursday afternoons at 1:30 pm. Our next book will be Everything Happens for a Reason by Kate Bowler. We begin each session with a short reading and then discuss questions while each works on a craft project of their choosing. Newcomers are welcome throughout the year!
All are welcome to join us Monday evenings at 7 pm in the East Sanctuary. Each week, we have a different theme that guides our practice. Remember to dress comfortably. For more information, contact Sheri. Meditation will return in Fall 2021 on September 13.
The third Thursday of each month, you are invited to join us for a meal and community! We are asking people to pay in advance, $7/person, $20/family or pay what you can – maximum 30 people. Pay in the office to reserve your spot or on Eventbrite (added fees) - http://bit.ly/2MZ9nkb.
At Eastside United, we are open to exploring being church in new ways. Feel free to contact the church office if you have questions about any of these groups and activities.
The Living Spirit Centre’s Women’s Spirituality Breakfast meets on the 2nd Saturday of each month from 8 to 10 am. Two women volunteer each month to prepare coffee and breakfast. Women who attend the gathering make a small donation to cover costs and to create a fund for presenters and special projects. Through a simple brainstorming process, he group chooses program topics for the coming year at one of its spring gatherings.
What to expect: a warm welcome; an open process that allows you to drop in or attend regularly; engaging topics and discussions that challenge, educate and provoke; opportunities for spiritual growth and exploration; friendship; to be accepted for who you are.
