Spring 2015 Offerings
Opportunities for Small Group Participation
All of these groups are open to the parish and friends! You are welcome to drop in and see if the small group is a “fit” for you.
Rector’s Bible Study: Meets on Monday mornings from 10:00 -11:30 a.m. in the Women’s Council Room. The next session begins April 20 and runs through May 18. Theme suggestions are welcome!
Men’s Group: Meets on Wednesday mornings from 10:00 -11:30 in the Baker Room discussing wide ranging topics of mutual interest. Contact: Caroline Stewart
Women’s Book Group: On the first Tuesday of every month, please join other women for a book discussion. We will meet from 3:30-5 p.m. in the Women’s Council Room. Ann Gavin is the lay facilitator and Caroline Stewart+ is the clergy contact. The first meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 7. The book for that day is "Mister Owita's Guide to Gardening: How I Learned the Unexpected Joy of a Green Thumb and an Open Heart" by Carol Wall. A true story of a unique friendship between two people who had nothing-and ultimately everything-in common.
Centering Prayer: Meets on Wednesday evenings at 6:15-7:15 and Saturday mornings from 10:00 to 11:30 in the Cloister Room. Each of these classes offers one sitting of Centering Prayer and a time of teaching and discussion about meditation and its practice. Contact Sherrill Pantle for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-377-0381.
Women Who Wonder: Meets on Thursday mornings from 10:00 -11:30 in the Women's Council Room. We explore questions of the spirit through art, music, poetry, movies, books and outside speakers. We ponder the essence of our humanity and learn about other faith traditions. There is not a set ‘curriculum’; often we go in an unplanned direction due to something that happens in the spontaneity of our discussions. Contact: Caroline Stewart+

Prayer Group– meets on the first Monday of the month at11:45 for an hour in the Cloister Room. This hour long gathering focuses on prayer for one another as well as those on our prayer list.
If adult spiritual formation is your calling, if you have a program you would like to suggest or plan or offer, or if you are looking for a ministry at Redeemer, we would love to talk with you about your ideas or interest in joining our ministry. Please let any member of the Christian Formation Committee or Redeemer's clergy know of your interest. We'd love to hear from you.
We look forward to your participation in one or more of our programs!
