DIVINE CONNECTIONS

Leaders: Dave and Sally McCune

Contact Info: davemccune1@gmail.com and sallylambmccune@gmail.com

Meeting Info: Usually every other Tuesday evening in the Durham Room. Contact Sally or Dave for more information.

The intent of this group is to seek Divine connection individually and through each other. We will focus on four essential components of our meetings.

* MEDITATION: Each member would ideally share a primary desire for a personal relationship with the Divine through silent, guided, and group meditation.

* CONTEMPLATION: As a group, we will strive to explore the challenges of a faith-centered life through personal and communal study and conversation. This may include individual and communal experiences of scripture, poetry, faith-based books, and written meditations.

* FELLOWSHIP: Every quarter we will gather at a different member’s home to enjoy the benefits of community without a specific spiritual agenda to deepen our individual relationships with one another.

* SERVICE: The group will commit to a significant service project 2 times per year. This may be a project that only the group initiates and works on, or may be in conjunction with larger mission goals and initiatives of the St Paul’s community.


WOMEN’S FELLOWSHIP

Leader: Kathryn Mapes

Contact Info: mapesterry@aol.com

Meeting Info: Children out of the house? Grandchildren arriving? Retirement around the corner? Any of the above? None of the above? Come join the Women’s Fellowship. We’ve packed health kits and Friendship Center lunches, taken on work projects, watched and discussed the “Uppity Women of the Bible” series, gone on day trips, and offered many other opportunities for connecting among each other, St Paul’s, and the world. Added plus – we are really good at laughing! We welcome you to join us!
