There are a number of ways we nurture faith among adults. There are unique needs and strengths in faith formation for each stage of life. We try to be attentive to various needs through a number of opportunities throughout the year. These include things such as: Sunday School, Community Groups, Book Clubs, Arts-n-August, Lectionary Lunch, and more.
These are not your typical small groups. A Community Group is a group composed of approximately eight people who covenant together to share life, faith, and ministry. Imagine sharing your life and faith in a deeper way with a handful of friends from your church. What might it be like to have a place where you can come and let your guard down…where you can share your hopes and dreams…where your faith is deepened and stretched? Have you ever thought about being part of a group of people who are committed to praying for one another and studying together and serving together? In the midst of a busy schedule and the demands of life, do you ever long for a time and place to step away and breathe…a place for your soul to rest and be refreshed? If so, our community groups are for you. Community Groups meet weekly October through April.
Each Wednesday a group gathers in Anniversary Hall to share laughter, food, and scripture from 12:00p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Lunch is always potluck and bound to be prepared from delicious recipes of our members. Our time of study generally uses the lectionary passage that will be preached on the following Sunday. It is a time of digging in and asking questions as we prepare for the coming Sunday. All are welcome whenever they are able.
At Dayspring, opportunities abound to exercise your unique gifts and strengthen our community. Doing simple work together and for one another is an important part of our community life and personal journeys of faith. Joyfully offering gifts of time, talent and humble service makes a difference in the experience we share and that we offer.
