A Labyrinth Walk // Una Caminata del Laberinto

“The winding walk of the Labyrinth symbolizes a pilgrim’s walk with God.  It is not a maze; there are no tricks to it and no dead ends.  The path winds throughout and becomes a mirror of the way we live our lives; so walk it with an open heart and mind.”

 We invite you to join us in walking the Labyrinth on April 18th in the Fellowship Hall. Walkers, wheelchairs as well as children are welcome! Free!

“La caminata de la bobina del laberinto simboliza la caminata del un peregrino con dios. No es un laberinto; no hay trucos a el y ningún callejón sin salida. Los vientos de la trayectoria en todas partes y se convierten en un espejo de la manera que vivimos nuestras vidas, camínala con el corazón y mente abierto.”

Le invitamos a que nos acompañen en caminar el laberinto 18 de abril en Fellowship Hall. ¡Caminadores, personas en sillas de ruedas, así como niños son bienvenidos! ¡Gratis!


Church as Village / Church as Body

“Church as Village / Church as Body,” a learning opportunity offered by Dr. Mary Maaga, is a fresh approach to understanding why some approaches to ministry work within your Church and why some don’t.  Participants will have a chance during the workshop to explore the psychological, social, and organizational dynamics of your Church as both primitive village and as Biblical body of Christ.

This is a high energy, innovative approach to understanding the personality of your local Church.

Date: Sunday, September  22nd at 2:00 pm, Fellowship Hall

Mary Maaga has a PhD with distinction from Drew University in Religion and Society and was an Ordained Elder in the United Methodist Church. She is a popular retreat leader and event speaker.  Her novel The Alabaster Orphan: A Mystic Girl’s Journey with Jesus has been described as spellbinding, inspiring, gritty, “a Jesus story like none other.”
