Companions for the Journey: Introductory Classes

Monday, August 19, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. and Thursday, August 22, 9:00 – 10:30 a.m.

Companions is a safe, confidential community of people who gather to listen receptively to brief passages from the Bible and ponder how the words might connect to wherever we may find ourselves or where God may be at work in our lives. We then listen to each other, reflect back on what we may have noticed as we listen, and hold each other in prayer.

Companions meet once a month on Monday evenings or Thursday mornings from October through June.

Spiritual Practices Class: “Centered Living-Rhythms for an Integrated Life”

Wednesdays, October 9–December 18 from 8:30-10:30 a.m. 

Throughout the history of the Church, followers of Jesus have found that practicing simple exercises, or “disciplines,” were a gateway to new, spiritual vistas. In today’s language, the word “discipline” might be better understood as “training.” Rightly practiced, these disciplines can free people from life’s obstacles and open a deep intimacy with God. This course consists of ten, two-hour weekly meetings, with time for sharing, discussion, reflection, teaching, and weekly assignments.

Led by Pastor Lauren Gully, this course will run Wednesdays from October 9 – December 18 from 8:30-10:30 a.m. (no class 11/27). To sign up, contact Renée at renee@lopc.org.
