Grounded in the desire to meet with God, yoga practice at CotS is an opportunity to slow down and pay attention to your body and your breath.

Lectio on Zoom
"Lectio Divina" is Latin for "sacred reading" and is the name of a specific way of reading short sections of the Bible several times with space for prayer in between. Repetition and slowing down gives the space to listen to God and open yourself to God's transforming work in your life.
The meetings happen on Zoom 8-9pm EST on the last Monday of the month. You will be led through the whole process and don't need to prepare or know what you're doing! (You will need to be able to connect on Zoom.) Please click/tap here to sign up for reminders and updates.
Small groups provide a place for ongoing spiritual formation, as well as friendship and fellowship. They are a great way for new people to get plugged into our community, and for long-term members to get to know others in the church. Some small groups are kid-friendly, some for adults only. There are Bible studies, book studies, and groups that meet for fellowship meals. One of these groups could be right for you! Contact Pastor Chris for more information.
Our Adult Education program is designed to help us grow deeper in our faith and learn more about the Bible, theology, and the Christian life. We have regular Adult Education classes on Sunday mornings at 9:15am, September through May. Classes are informal and discussion-oriented, and childcare is provided. We also sponsor occasional community-wide evening events. Questions? Contact Pastor Chris.
Reading the Bible together helps us to grow in knowledge of God and friendship with each other. We study scripture not only to know about God, but to know God and be transformed by God's Word.
Periodically, the congregation is invited to read scripture connected to a sermon series. Generally, there are suggestions of different ways to engage with the scriptures and times to share with the community. Click/tap here for our current series on Ephesians.
There are several Bible studies that run from September to May:
One women's group meets on Monday mornings (9-10:30am) at the church. Childcare provided.
Another women's group meets on Thursday evenings (7:30-9pm) at the church.
A group for men meets at a congregant's home on Friday mornings (6-7:30am).
If you would like more information about any of these groups, please contact our office.
