ONELogo2014

 It's not just for kids!  It's for EVERYONE!

Join us as we kick off our four-day adventure on Sunday, June 8th from 5:30 pm until 8:00 pm. Each night we'll explore one of God's gardens from the scriptures. Also, each night we'll share a garden-themed meal with an international twist. As usual, we'll enjoy drama, music, and interactive skits hosted by Linda Black and her trusty sidekick, "Carlos" (Jason's twin brother). Dessert will provide one last sweet taste before our departure. 

We'll dig deeper as we do some planting in our souls and in the soil. We'll cultivate our minds and spirits as we play together, create communal art together, and package 10,000 meals to share with neighbors in need. A free will offering will be collected for our service/mission project.

ONE is 100% free!  And while space is not limited, reservations are needed, so please register soon! Registration forms can be found on the website or in the Ligo room at the church.  You can also call the church office at 724-946-3541.

Module D - 3/23 thru 4/6

Beginning Sunday, March 23rd 

Sunday Morning Module Offerings     9:15am - 10:15am

ONE: Baptism

Baptism is central to how we understand ourselves as a community of faith, yet there is often confusion about why and how we use the sacrament in the church. Should we baptize infants? Why is this ritual important to the whole body? Why do we offer vows during baptisms? These questions and more will be explored through various modes of creative teaching aimed at engaging all ages in learning about baptism.

Location: Social Hall

Spiritual Formation Opportunities

Coming Soon!

In addition to all the modular Sunday School offerings, we've got a number of other opportunities to engage you and your families in spiritual formation. Set aside the time for these events, because you won't want to miss the 

St. Nicholas Day 

In the spirit of St. Nicholas of Myra, we’ll gather on December 6, 2013

to mix, roll, cut, bake, wrap, and deliver St. Nicholas cookies in our

community. Mark your calendar for this intergenerational event that

celebrates the life and legacy of one of the most known historic figures.

   

All-Church Retreat

 

Block out January 24-26 on your 2014 calendar for our All-Church

Retreat at the Castle in Franklin, PA. Not only is this a tradition for our

congregation, it’s an incredible time for fellowship, food and creative

spiritual formation. 

 

Confirmation

In 2014, we’ll begin a new Confirmation Class. In an effort to

understand how this congregation understands confirmation and what

we hope it leads toward, we’ll be hosting “confirmation focus groups”

for parents, youth and anyone invested in this practice of catechesis. If

you’re interested in participating in these conversations, please email

This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

 

Compline

Sometime this autumn, we are inviting Westminster students to join the

larger community in an exercise of being. Compline is simply 30

minutes of existential dwelling in a simple, yet holy space utilizing the

Taizé chants and silence. Coming soon to a Sunday night near you.

What is Sunday School Mod?

SundaySchoolModTitlePageWelcome to Sunday School Mod! Don't worry, it's still Sunday School, just with a few moderations! For starters, this year our Sunday School gatherings will be offered through five different modules (A through E). Each module will have several classses available for various ages and interests and will last for a set number of weeks (3-5). In between each module, there are breaks and a few communal meals peppered in the mix.

We're also going to live into the value of intergenerational formation a little more by offering three intergenerational classes where we'll look at the Eucharist, Baptism, and the Holy Seasons of Advent and Christmas. Each class session will be uniquely designed to engage participants of all ages.

There will also be a module focused on spiritual formation in the home, which will, perhaps ironically, take place in our homes. It's called Bread and Breakfast. Interested? There will be more information about B&B soon.

Then, we'll finish out the year with a deeper look at the story of Esther. Through various classes, we'll dig deepter into this dramatic book that holds a place in our Bible, yet never mentions God once. This class will culminate in the JHYG producation of E-16142: A Puppet Rock Opera.

Beyond these great offerings, we'll also gather for St. Nicholas Day, the All-Church Retreat, Pancake Tuesday, a Seder Meal during Holy week, and our intergenerational Vacation Bible School in June.

Module C - 2/2 thru 3/2

Sunday Morning Module Offerings     9:15am - 10:15am

Breakfast & Bread

In February, we’re going to try something completely different with

Sunday School… we’re going to try it in your homes! During Module C, everyone who signs up for the Breakfast & Bread module, will have a loaf of bread and a short devotional reading delivered to your door on Sunday morning. Then, from 9:30-10:00, you're invited to sit with those you love, while you enjoy your Breakfast (the loaf) & Bread (the devotional). You must sign up for this class on February 2nd at the first gathering. Join us at 9:15 in the Social Hall.

Location: Your Home

 


Trains, the Trinity, and Thinking Theologically

All aboard for this light hearted five-week module in which we take a ride

on a theological train. We'll hook together five key theological tools for

learning to THINK the Christian faith, especially for reflection and worship

on the mystery of God's triune life as three-in-one, one-in-three. This is

a fun introduction to the work of Christian theology.

Location: Room 214

 


S.A.L.T. (year long)

Salt is an ongoing study and invigorating discussion of contemporary and theological issues faciliated by Jim Hines. Even though this class meets all year, folks are invited to come and join at any point during the year. All are truly welcome.

Location and details: Salt Room downstairs

 


CAYA: Dietrich Bonhoeffer (year long)

Module B - 11/3 thru 11/24

Sunday Morning Module Offerings     9:15am - 10:15am

 

ONE: Advent, Christmas and Epiphany, Oh My!

 

The holiday season is one of those periods of the year that always

seems to creep up on us unexpectedly. School starts and the next

thing you know… it’s Thanksgiving and we’re behind in everything.

This year, we’d like to help prepare our families, and really the whole

congregation, for the holy season of Advent and Christmastide. So,

we’re offering a special four-week module/workshop to get you and

yours ready for one of the most blessed times of the year. Each week

we’ll look at a different way to celebrate the season. Come make

Chrismon cans, color some Jesse Tree ornaments, shrinky-dink your O’

Antiphons, and make your Advent wreath. This is an all ages,

hands-on module for more than just families… it’s for everyone!

Location: Social Hall 

 


Advent, In Home Edition 

Advent In Home Edition, is our non-modulated, holy season devotional,

during which we’re encouraging families and smaller groups to gather

together to observe the four Sundays of Advent in local homes (Dec. 1 to

Dec. 25). All materials are provided… no experience necessary.

Location: Your Home 

 


Shiny Gods

What happens when we truly put God first in all aspects of our lives? In a

culture guided chiefly by shiny, life-promising distractions, “enough”

seems elusive and keeps us indebted to that next source of satisfaction.

What if the Giver of Life offered freedom from this downward spiral—

would you take it? In Shiny Gods, pastor and author Mike Slaughter

helps readers reassess priorities and create a culture and a lifestyle of

giving with a special emphasis on missions.

Location: TBD
