New Small Groups – Real Life Together
Have you been yearning for a place to talk about real life in real ways? Would you enjoy talking to others about ways you see God at work in the world? Joining a small group is a great next step in your faith journey. Groups consist of 5-6 couples or 8-10 individuals, and meet at a time and place agreed upon by the group. Groups are available for couples, men or women in a variety of life stages and circumstances. New small groups are formed at our Group Launch events, held two times each year.
Registration forms available Sundays or online at www.faithlutherancr.org under Ministries/Adult or contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org

Women’s Spiritual Spa
Held three times a year
Sometimes our lives can get really hectic. When that happens it is nice to have an opportunity for retreat, renewal, and refreshment. Spiritual spa is designed to provide just those things that we crave, but instead of manicures and pedicures we will be pampering our spirits.
Recognizing that many people really struggle to fit meaningful time with God into the rhythm of their days and weeks, each Spiritual Spa will have its own theme that will help us explore our relationship with God and one another and provide some practical tools and resources to carry the “retreat” time into daily life. Held on a Friday night or Saturday morning so that there are fewer distractions from the demands of work and family, the retreat will begin with a light and delicious meal and some time for connecting with other women. This is a great opportunity to invite others who maybe don’t have a connection to a faith community. No experience is necessary—all are welcome.
