Meditate to learn how to be still and connect with the God within. In this class you will learn the benefits of meditation and the different ways to meditate.

THE DANIEL PLAN
Leaders: Jill Camp and Lynne Barth
For first-timers and for those who want to begin again. The Daniel Plan is a spiritually-based wellness plan, designed to help all individuals feel healthier. Each week you will see and discuss a video highlighting one of the basics of the plan: Faith, Food, Fitness, Focus, Friends. As a small group, you will share encouragement, recipes, and tips for staying on track.
JESUS, MUHAMMAD, AND THE OLD TESTAMENT PROPHETS
Leader: the Rev. Jim Edwards
This course will survey the major teachings of the Old Testament prophets, who are some of the most fascinating and memorable people in the Bible. We’ll read stirring passages from a variety of prophets, including Moses, Amos, Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel. We’ll see that Jesus proclaimed the same message as the prophets, but was also very different from them. To our surprise, we’ll discover that Muhammad’s preaching was based on the most important themes of the Old Testament prophets! This course is a great opportunity to deepen your knowledge of Islam as well as the Bible. There is no required textbook.
WRITING AS A SPIRITUAL PRACTICE
Leader: Kelly Brill
For beginning writers, for people who have always loved to write, for people who think they “can’t” write creatively…for anyone who would like to explore the ways that writing can help us pay attention to God’s messages in our lives. We will discuss various ways of incorporating writing into your daily life, including journaling. Each night you will have the opportunity to write something and (if you wish) share it with the group.
INTRODUCTION TO PUPPETRY (Grades K – 8)
Leader: Beau Dansizen
This course will explore the world of beginning puppetry, from simple techniques to building and using different types of puppets. Participants will build several puppets of different styles to take home. Registration is required for this class to ensure that there are enough materials for all participants.
PLEASE NOTE: You may participate in any of the above classes, whether or not you can be here for all six weeks. Please register early so that we may order the appropriate food for dinner and materials for each class!
