Sabbatical Groups will be meeting this summer and fall to provide opportunities for all of us to be refreshed and energized in friendship and faith, to engage in service, and to have fun. To join a group, you can sign up in the Fellowship Hall, contact the group’s animator, or simply show up for the first meeting.
1) Helping Hands | Animator: Carol Honderich | monthly, third Wednesday of each month (next meeting is August 5), 5:30 pm | PSMC Fellowship Hall. Join this group to learn how to quilt or sew, or to find a time, a place, and encouragement to finish a project you’ve already begun. Each meeting begins with a brown bag meal.
2) Exploring the Bible through Drama | Animator: Laura Kraybill | once, Sunday, August 16, 1-3 pm | PSMC Fellowship Hall. This group is for non-actors and actors of all ages and abilities. Laura will lead participants in exploring one or two biblical texts through mime, voice and creative group exercises. Wear clothes that are comfortable to move in. Expect to understand bible stories in new and meaningful ways!
3) Gospel of John Bible Study | Animator: Matt Cordella | weekly, Sunday mornings at 11:15 am (Sunday school time), beginning Sunday, July 26 | PSMC lower level classroom. This group will study the Gospel of John by reading and discussing it together—no other materials are required.
4) Bicycle Adventures | Animator: Nick Bouwman | schedule and location to come. This group will meet to take a few shorter bike rides together and finish with a longer route. Participants will also learn about how to care for our bikes.
5) Faith and Film | Animator: Ross Ringenberg (looking for a co-animator) | monthly, schedule to come | PSMC Sanctuary. This group will meet to watch movies and discuss their meaning in light of our faith. What kind of messages, both explicit and implicit, do we get in films; how does this shape us and our culture; and how do we interpret these things as followers of Jesus? Come discuss!
6) Watershed Exploration | Animator: Josh Kinder
