Lakewood UCC Book Group
We meet the first Sunday of the month following the Sunday Service. We typically meet in the Conference Room and it is open to all. The Group chooses the books we wish to read and discuss, from a variety of genre. The person who has suggested the book leads the discussion. Linda Andreen, Coordinator.
Dinner for Eight
A rotating dinner, an opportunity for a small group gathering over shared food. Couples & singles sign up at the Welcome Center, then the organizers will group you with others to form a group of eight. Each group of eight will have someone bringing a salad, main dish, or dessert. The host will provide coffee/tea/water and an appetizer. Individuals can bring other beverages as desired. The groups will change every time, allowing an opportunity to connect in new ways with others in the congregation. You don’t have to sign up every time, just when it is convenient for you! Mary Ann Rothenburger, Coordinator.
Prayer Group meets the first Monday of the month from 9:45-11:30 AM. Member updates, an opening devotion or meditation, and review of current and new prayer requests are routine. Although not a book club, we often read and study books pertaining to prayer. We respect confidentiality in prayer requests. Most prayer requests are honored for a month unless otherwise requested. In addition to individual and collective prayers, we are able to provide a member-knitted prayer shawl. Twila Shankland, Coordinator.
Out to Lunch Bunch
The Out to Lunch Bunch is an open and ever change group who simply likes to go out to lunch once a month! We go to a designated restaurant, order and pay individually, and just enjoy an hour or so of good food and great fellowship. Sign-ups are at the Welcome Center, and all are invited to join in the food and fellowship. Marcia Forney, Coordinator.
Brewatitudes is a monthly gathering to discuss theological topics in a casual atmosphere. We meet monthly at Green Mountain Brewery on a Sunday afternoon from 3pm-4: 30 pm. Each month we will engage in a new topic at the intersection of theology & living, faith & culture. Food trucks will be available, beer is optional, openness to a good conversation a must. A discussion will be facilitated by Rev. Mollie, contact her with any questions! Rev. Mollie Landers Hatt, Coordinator.
Our Men’s Ministry breakfast is an easy and fun way to get to know some of the other guys in the church. The second Saturday of every month we gather at a local restaurant for breakfast to chat and deepen our relationships in a casual setting. We hope that you will plan on joining us. Daryl Foelske, Coordinator.
Every Wednesday morning at 10:45 a.m., Pastor Curt leads a Bible Study for 20-30 members of the congregation. There’s always a lively discussion and a lot of laughter. Basically, if you’re trying to figure out how to take scripture that was written at least 2,000 years ago and apply it to your life in the modern world, this is the perfect place to do it. Rev Curt Preston, Coordinator.
Sacred Circles are an intimate cohort of women who meet monthly to share sacred circle basics, such as listening without an agenda, rotating leadership, and also offer reflections on the power of personal storytelling and thoughts on reclaiming and reinventing ritual. Women longing for a powerful and supportive feminine community in which to thrive spiritually will find vital wisdom here. Rev. Mollie Landers Hatt, Coordinator.
