Are you Spiritual but not Religious? Do you wish for a different kind of spiritual community? A community of spiritual friends that can laugh and cry and think and question and work and simply be… together? One where your mind, spirit and body can all be fed? One that gathers later in the day? Then join come to FCCB (First Congregational Church of Bethel) this Sunday, September 16, at 6pm for our first Soul/Food gathering.
On the third Sunday of each month, our time together will be shaped by our understanding of how the first Christians gathered. We’ll begin by seeking the Presence of the Holy in silence and prayer. We’ll share some music. We’ll offer you a chance to set down any burdens you are carrying and experience God’s recreation. We will listen for God’s voice in sacred readings as well as secular sources. We’ll share the Lord’s Supper (also called Holy Communion or Eucharist). Our time will conclude with a potluck meal.
In many ways, this is “worship under construction”, something that those who participate will build together. And so FCCB invites your input into what would make this time nourishing for your spirit and body. People from all faith backgrounds are invited to participate in Soul/Food gatherings. So come as you are, bring something to share, and join us for Soul/Food on Sunday, September 16.
