COMING SEPTEMBER 10th!! 

 

Youth Group

 

Back by popular demand, Youth Group is coming to United Church of the Valley! One of our new members, Sandy Selby, was a youth leader for 13 years at her home church of First Christian Church of Louisville, KY. She is excited to bring youth programming back to UCV as our new Youth Minister.
 
Youth Group will consist of small group meetings, service projects and fun outings. The teens will drive all decisions for topics and activities. It will be a group for teens, by teens, with adult guidance and direction intended to empower them in their own spiritual growth and path to discipleship. Youth Group starts Sept. 10th. We will meet Sunday mornings in the cafeteria from 10-11, then rejoin the congregation for communion. Make plans now to join us!

THE “INNER-ROOM” GATHERING

 

 

THE “INNER-ROOM” GATHERING is a place to sense, feel and connect to the Presence of God through the SILENCE. 

In that quietness of God…eyes can be opened or closed:  it may be “quiet reflection” on an issue from the past-present, it may be taking a break to breathe and re-connect to God in-between the busy-ness of the morning, it may be sitting quietly in Fellowship with God, it may be Praying quietly for self, others, the church, world, etc., or it may take the form of “Centering Prayer” or “Meditation.” It will be unique to each individual!

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ….Find a quiet, secluded room-place…so you won’t be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage, and speak to God as a child would. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense God’s Grace.     Matthew 6:6

 

Take this most seriously:  A yes on earth is yes in heaven; a no on earth is no in heaven. What you say to one another is Eternal. When two or three of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it, God in Heaven goes into action.    Matthew 18:20

 

START DATE:

Sunday, September 10th, and every Sunday after….

 

TIME:

9:00 to 9:25am—DISCUSSION-SHARE on being in Silence and various Spiritual Practices around Silence such as Prayer, Meditation, Reflection, Centering, etc., and people’s personal Journey deeper into God.

 

*9:30 to 9:50am—The “INNER -ROOM” SILENCE:  Feel free to enter and exit at anytime…it takes time and “practice” to build up to feeling comfortable sitting in silence for 20 min. *We may start with 10 min of silence, and progress to 20 min in the upcoming weeks.

 

LOCATION:   Patio area—look for a sign on the door.

 

No experience necessary, so come and check it out! You may even begin to feel greater Inner Peace, Clarity & Renewal…
