About "A Wonder-Full Life" Our Fall series  
Sept. 22 – Oct. 20

Spiritual practice feeds that part of ourselves that is oriented toward serenity, harmony, truth, compassion, gratitude, love and joy. But these are not always words we use to describe the role of money in our lives. In the classic film, It's a Wonderful Life, a crisis of money creates vastly diverse reactions from several characters that can hold up a mirror to our own relationships with money. In this series, we will "look" squarely in the face of our "money issues" in compassionate ways that can offer more depth of meaning, healing, and wholeness and a whole new "outlook" on what constitutes "a wonderful life."  Based upon the book Integrating Money and Meaning  by Maggie Kulyk and Liz McGeachy, this series guides us to a more enlightened understanding of the way we deal with money through exploring personality profiles embodied by characters in the classic film, It's a Wonderful Life  . Our intention with this series is to offer worship participants an opportunity to look at their individual histories and current relationships with money and align actions with intentions in the spiritual practice of stewardship.

We will use this series for 10am worship and dinner church at 6pm on Sundays. The dinner church events will allow us to try a new way of worshiping where we are in discussion with our faith while we dig a bit deeper into the material.

New Worship service starting on September 22 worship not only at 10am but also at 6pm the 10am worship service will be traditional but informal in fellowship hall. The 6pm worship will be a commmunion service around the table. Participants are welcome to bring food to share but soup and bread will be provided.
