Exploring the UCC and Our Connections to It
Wednesday, May 3rd at 7 p.m.
Yes, Memorial is 100 years old, but we are part of a larger denomination – the United Church of Christ – that has a rich history of its own. Join pastor Phil for a video looking at the how the UCC came to be and join in a discussion on our larger church history and how Memorial fits into that and how our partnership with other denominations forms our worship and who we are as a congregation. The United Church of Christ was formed in 1957 and has made many firsts in the Christian community such as the first integrated anti-slavery society, first woman pastor and the first openly gay pastor.
Doctor Who and Theology
Third Friday each month starting at 6 p.m.
Are you a fan of Doctor Who aka a “Whovian? Do you enjoy talking about religion? Join our Doctor Who and Theology class for children, youth and adults! Join us for a potluck dinner, an episode of Doctor Who that has a religious theme followed by a discussion led by Johanna Draper Carlson.
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.
First Tuesday of the month from 11 to 12 p.m.
This discussion group explores four questions: What does God expect from us, what does Jesus expect from us, what can we expect from God and Jesus and what we should expect from one another. Journals are given to use for further self-exploration.
To create and promote opportunities for religious education, spiritual growth, and intergenerational connections for our members and friends throughout their lifespans.
