Theodyssey Spiritual Formation Journey

Tuesday mornings, 9:00 a.m. beginning September 19th in the Holmes Room
Led by Rev. Danielle Jones
Theodyssey is a made up word (aren’t they all?) cobbled together from theos, God, and odyssey, a wandering and eventful journey.  This seems to be the nature of the Christian life- a wandering and eventful journey with God.  Join Danielle Jones for an in-depth Bible Study/Small Group/Spiritual Formation experience that will meet most Tuesday mornings from September 2023-April 2024.  

This Journey Group is right for you if:
You want to grow deeper in your relationships with God
•  You desire to ask important questions about life and faith
•  You are free most Tuesdays throughout the year.  This group will meet three Tuesdays a month.  We will take a three week break in December and we will have one retreat at an agreed upon time with the group (Two days including an overnight).  You can miss the group here and there but the more you are present the more you will get out of it! The cost will be $120 for materials (two big journeybooks). Any questions or more informatio, contact Danielle Jones, Register online:

September 12, September 26, October 10, October 24
9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. in the Colonnade
Led by Rev. Steve Wiens
When people who take their faith seriously find themselves in a season of doubt and questioning, it can be confusing and disorienting.  The good news is that this isn’t a bad thing, it’s actually healthy! Questioning what you believe is not a sign that you’re losing your faith, it’s a sign that you’re growing in your faith This four week class, facilitated by Steve Wiens, will offer space to discuss how we can move through these seasons with patience and honesty.

Expanding the Enneagram with Stephanie Spencer

September 13, 20, & 27
4:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. in the Colonnade
The Enneagram is a helpful tool not only for self discovery but also for empathy in relationships. But many of us have only experienced Enneagram content through the head, in an information-based approach. This approach is instructional, but also limited. If we aren’t careful, reading too many Enneagram Type descriptions can become more like boxes of limitation than pathways of growth. 

In this class, Stephanie Spencer will help you get out of those boxes. Using content from her book, Out of the Box and Into the Wild: An Enneagram Journey Through the Triads of Nature, as a launching point, she will lead the group through both learning and interactive practices, helping us see why we are unique, what we have in common, and how we can find more compassion and effectiveness in our interactions with one another. Registration Fee of $25 includes a copy of Stephanie’s book. Register online:

Another Round of Midrash with Steve Wiens
October 4 & 11
4:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. in the Colonnade
Midrash is an exploratory way of studying the Bible which allows for layers of meaning to emerge through dialogue and discovery. The layers of midrash provide space to ask questions with the layers of the human experience. Together we can struggle through how an ancient text might speak into the reality of what it means to live today. We can use the layer of simple meaning to ground us, while using the seeking layer to stretch us out beyond what we might see at first glance. No bible study experience necessary – only an open heart and a curious mind!

Saturday Seekers
Saturday Mornings from 9:30-11:00 a.m. in the Holmes Room
beginning September 23
Batter up! Strrrr-ike! Foul Ball! OUT! Did you ever wonder if God is like a baseball umpire? Does our Creator keep score? Theologian, professor of Biblical studies, and acclaimed author, Peter Enns, tackles complex issues of faith and turns them into something that feels accessible and relatable. In his books The Bible Tells Me So, and How the Bible Actually Works he shares actual stories with humor and sarcasm in ways that make you think. His latest book is titled Curveball. If you have ever been scared or intimidated by questions of faith, Enns argues that God is bigger and more mysterious than anyone’s expectations. The curveballs in our lives can leave us doubting. This Fall we’ll be embracing these curveballs with discussions from these books.  If you are not on Seekers email distribution list and want to be, contact Judy Reed at During the program year we send information almost weekly. Occasionally we have just for fun get-togethers too.
