Faith Development for Adults

Cakes for the Queen of Heaven
Wednesdays, June 26th, July 3rd, 10th, 24th, 31st, August 7th from 6-8 p.m.
What would it have been like to grow up in a world where the divine was imaged as female? This question, by Rev. Shirley Ranck, PhD, is just one of the topics we’ll be exploring in our 6-session summer course, Cakes for the Queen of Heaven. We’ll explore topics such as reclaiming our bodies, reclaiming mother-daughter relationships, and seeking the female presence in Judaism and Christianity. For more information contact director of faith development, Rebecca Malke. A signup sheet is in the niche.
First Friday Fellowship
FFF will not meet on the first Friday of July or August. On August 8th we will be taking a field trip to Olbrich Gardens to see the Butterfly Exhibit and having lunch at the Daisy Cafe. We will meet at the church at 11:30 A.M. and from there will go to the Daisy Cafe for lunch. After lunch we will proceed to Olbrich Gardens where we have a reservation for the Butterfly Exhibit at 1:45 P.M.
The cost of the exhibit is $8.00 per person payable at the Garden. Please RSVP no later than July 27th in order to confirm our reservations. Please indicate on the sign up sheet whether you will be attending both events or just one and if you need a ride or are willing to drive. If you don’t want to carpool but will meet us at the restaurant or Olbrich’s just check those boxes.
First Friday Fellowship is open to all and is a chance for you to enjoy the camaraderie of a small group at MUCC.

Doctor Who and Theology
Third Friday of each month starting at 6:30 p.m.
The next gathering will be June 21st. Bring a dish to pass.
Scripture and Scones
Wednesdays from 8 to 9 a.m.
Every week, a group of folks gather in our library to look at the Scripture texts that will be used the following Sunday. These are often very lively discussions — and the baked goods and coffee aren’t bad either. Anyone is welcome to join at any time.
