9am FORUM RETURNS NEXT WEEK:
Mystagogy 101: What is that?
Sunday, June 25, 9 a.m., South Parish Hall 
"Mystagogy" (Greek, "leading through the mysteries") is the ancient practice of reflecting upon one's experience of Christ in Sunday worship, especially in the Easter Season. How have you encountered God and the spirit of resurrection during our parish's 50-day celebration of Easter? Mystagogy is not so much a catalogue of liturgical likes and dislikes, for we all have our individual preferences, but more deepening our awareness and understanding of God's mysterious presence in what we do in worship together.
 
What was it like
  • to move from a capella singing in Lent to full instrumentation in Easter?
  • to stumble over unfamiliar words and responses from Enriching our Worship?
  • to sing a rousing Alleluia! In response to the Easter gospels?
Come explore and discuss your experience and your questions about these and other parts of our Easter liturgies!
Watch a Past 9am Forum Online! 
We'd like to see you at the 9am Forum every Sunday morning! But if you miss a week, you can watch it on YouTube any time, day or night.
CHILDREN'S FORMATION
YOUTH CREW NEWS
Youth CREW Summer  
Youth Crew will meet on Sunday mornings at 9 a.m. throughout the summer! Crew Wednesdays will resume in the fall. In the meantime, stay tuned for other outreach and fellowship opportunities events over the next few months.
NEXT WEEK
Come and See
Sunday, June 25, after 10:15 a.m. 
Come explore ways to pray outside! We will be on the patio, experimenting with nature prayers, and yes - there will be bubbles. All are welcome!

Do you ever wonder, how does faith affect my life on Monday morning? Not sure how to talk about the Bible with your preschooler, or your teenager? Do you yearn to grow in faith as a family - not just at church, but at home? Are you a grandparent, desiring to pass on your faith to your grandkids?
 
This summer, Faith Formation (formerly Christian Formation) is hosting several "Come and See" events, where we will explore those questions together. These events, following the 10:15 service, are designed to be intergenerational - that is, people of all ages will try on different prayer practices. We will go through stations, which invite us to practice talking to God in new ways: on a hike, at the beach, at bedtime, or at the dinner table. After each event, you'll go home with something that you can incorporate into your daily life. Think of it like a laboratory - there are so many ways to pray and to engage with our faith. Come and see some new, creative ways, and try them on. You just might be surprised!
