Learning Communities

Study opportunities designed to meet you where you are, connect you to others, and move you along your own faith journey

In-progress and upcoming Learning Communities are posted below in chronological order by start date.

  • Praying the Scriptures  •  Aug 2 - May 30

    When & Where: Wed  •  Aug 2 - May 30  •  1-2:30 pm  •  Room 208
    Led by: Rev. Mary Howard
    Childcare: Yes. Please make reservations by emailing childcare@fumcr.com at least one week before the group meeting.

    Rev. Mary Howard will facilitate the group using the lectio divina method for small groups. We will pray various scriptures and even some spiritual classics. Don’t worry if you don’t know what lectio divina means. You will be guided. Instead of focusing on facts and background information, we will be seeking to hear God speaking to us through the scriptures.

    A long term commitment is not required. You may participate as your schedule permits.
