Cultivating Mindfulness Skills
Adult study June 10, 17, and 24 at 11:15 a.m. in the fellowship hall.
Mindfulness is a practice that has been an integral element of religious and spiritual traditions for millennia. Beginning June 10, Steve Herbes will lead a three-session study on mindfulness. The first session will be a general overview of what mindfulness is (and isn’t). The two sessions that follow (June 17 and 24) will focus on specific practices, such as seated and walking meditation. Steve is a member of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church and a licensed professional counselor. He has over 25 years’ experience in mindfulness-based meditative practices.
Adult Sunday morning classes
The Early Birds Adult Bible study class meets in room 6, Sanctuary building, at 9:00 a.m. each Sunday morning. The class is led by Anne Backus and other class participants. This summer they will be studying the “short” books (letters mostly from St. Paul): 1 & 2 Thessalonians, Titus, Philemon, 1 & 2 Peter, 1, 2 & 3 John, and Jude. It’s a nice time to drop in for study and fellowship. The 9:00 a.m. Rise ‘n' Shine class invites you to join their study of Genesis. Led by Cheryl Barr, Sue Byrne, and Hannah Tippet, they meet each week in the parlor. Questions? Call 865-318-8856.
Midweek Bible study
The midweek Bible class, which had been studying Paul’s letters, is taking a break until August. For June and July, you are invited to join the Early Birds or Rise ‘n’ Shine Bible studies.
