In addition to worshiping virtually during this time, many in our church family are creating community and gathering virtually to grow in their faith together. As groups continue to form, we’ll add to this list.
Intentional Journey – This class is meeting each Sunday via Zoom and will begin a new study on May 31. They meet weekly at 9:45 a.m. using John Goldingay’s book, Daniel and the Twelve Prophets. The books included in this study are Daniel, Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephanaiah, Haggai, Zachariah, and Malachi. Participants are encouraged to order a copy of the book online. Ed Coman leads the weekly discussion and will provide participants with a week-by-week study guide. Anyone interested in joining the class is welcome. Please contact Leslie to be added to the distribution list.
Reconnect – This weekly gathering is for women of all ages. Every Friday at 11:00 a.m. the group gathers virtually to take a 30 minute mental field trip. You will need a journal, a pen and a semi-quiet space to participate. Email Sally to join this group.
Missional Communities – Missional Communities are groups of 20-40 people who share life, and are on mission together. Normally, we meet in homes twice a month, and serve in the community at least once a month. During this time, we’ve gone virtual, and would love to have you join any of our 8 vibrant communities. You can check our missional communities out, and get contact information here, or email Ashley to learn more and get connected.
Youth – Our youth are staying connected via Zoom, Instagram (estreetyouth), and video. If you have middle or high school students in your family, we hope you’ll check out both the weekly youth e-newsletter and our Youth Group video gatherings here. You can also email Rush to connect.
Spiritual Direction – Edenton Street member Sarah Capel is available to help you listen for ways in which God is loving you and calling you during this difficult time. Sarah is completing her training as a spiritual director, and has a Master of Arts in Christian Practice from Duke Divinity School. While it is customary for spiritual directors to receive an honorarium per meeting, Sarah is not engaging in this practice at present. Both Sarah, as well as others in the North Carolina Institute for Spiritual Direction and Formation, are available to help meet the needs of our congregation. If you are interested, please contact Sarah to engage in deep listening and other spiritual practices.
