Advent Contemplative Word & Table
from home, especially
for Pastors and Church Leaders

Join us for a simple, virtual worship experience
Tuesdays @ 11:00 am – Noon
December 1, 8, 15, and 22 via Zoom
Rev. Ashley Thomas and Rev. Craig Sefa, presiding

Using Lectio Divina, we will read through an Advent scripture passage and prayerfully reflect upon it in both silence and conversation. Having feasted on God’s Word, we will share in God’s grace with a *spiritual communion liturgy, as we anticipate the coming of the Christ-child. Come on any Tuesday you are available.

*Spiritual communion is a way to receive Jesus and his grace at a time or in circumstances when we cannot receive him through the sacramental elements of bread and cup.

Reach out to registrar Nancy Bellamy at to receive a recurring Zoom invitation link. All are welcome! Come as you are able.
