Praying in Color
Explore this new, creative dimension to prayer through a study of Sybil MacBeth's book Praying in Color: Drawing a New Path to God. Discover the artist inside of you that longs to connect with God through prayer while longing for prayer to be more than a shopping list of wants. You need not consider yourself an artist to attend. Doodlers are welcome!

Care for the Caregiver
There is an increased number of people these days who are responsible for the care of aging/ailing family members and loved ones. If you are caring for a loved one, whether in your home, a residential setting, or via long distance in their home, you need support and care yourself. Learn and share with others how caregivers can take care of themselves while caring for others. This is an informal group which does not require the purchase of materials.
Where: Room 207
Facilitators: Colin and Cathy Shaw
Knit, Purl and Pray
Learn a new skill in the new year! Join new and experienced knitters as they craft items for this ministry of care and support.

The Problem of Suffering
How do we as Christians wrestle with the reality of suffering? To use Rabbi Kushner's phrase, "Why do bad things happen to good people?" This question is relevant, not only to tragedies like the recent Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings but to more common experiences of suffering. This study will help us look at biblical, theological, and practical ways of responding to these difficult questions.
