Adult Forum: Coping During Covid

Join your Northwoods friends for this second offering in a three part series on how we are managing during the Covid-19 pandemic. What are we doing to sustain our spiritual spunk and sparkle?

This month Mary Chimarusti, Ryan Hoffland, Mira Dessy and the directors of the Transcendental Center in Houston —Paula Strong and Steve Corrick— will discuss their personal practices for keeping a healthy spiritual outlook.

Bring some lunch and join us at 12:15 p.m. in the “digital sanctuary,” using the same Zoom link we use for worship: (Meeting ID: 766 833 5778).

There will be a time for questions and your own contributions at the end of the session.

Stay After Service for Conversation and Community

This fall, Northwoods will be offering regular after-service programming designed to meet the needs of different folks in the congregation:

First Sundays: Our excellent and longstanding Adult Forum will continue meeting at 12:15 and offering opportunities for learning, conversation and connection. Right now, Adult Forum is exploring the theme of “Coping.”

Second Sundays: Parents with young kids in the home and RE program are invited to join Gay Lynn Pierce, Coordinator of Religious Education, for conversation and support. Each month, Gay Lynn will introduce the coming month’s take-home materials for families as well. This group will begin at 11:45.

Third Sundays: Our administrator Jamie Thompson will facilitate small group conversations centered around questions related to that Sunday’s themes using Zoom Breakout Rooms. (No special skills required to use Breakout Rooms.)

Fourth Sundays: Leaders of our SEE Justice programs will facilitate learning and conversation around the various social justice issues close to our hearts, including immigration, police reform, reproductive justice, mass incarceration, ecological justice, and so much more.

These groups will meet in the “digital sanctuary,” using the same Zoom link we use for worship: (Meeting ID: 766 833 5778).
