We are moving our Common House gatherings to the First Congregational United Church of Christ Fellowship Hall (elevator accessible second floor) beginning February 19. Please do pass this on to friends who might be interested in our topics and gatherings. We'll also be shifting our meeting time to 6:30 PM to work better with the church's alternative worship service called Underground Church that meets downstairs at 5 PM. Tea will be served after each service and we'll keep a simple free will donation bowl.
Beginning March 19, we'll be alternating our Common House program with Infinity Church, a fully experiential worship experience featuring an always interesting blend of movement, chant, drumming, art, journaling, meditation, and more. All faiths are welcome as well as folks who might call themselves "spiritual not religious" or even "religious nones". :-) If you know folks in the community who might enjoy leading such experiences, please drop their name(s) to me!
Notice, too, the first Infinity Church retreat entitled The Enneagram and Mystics will be held on September 16 at 9:30-3:30 at the church. I'll have more information available for you all as we get a little closer, but I thought you might want to reserve the date!
Here is the calendar through May. Please cut it out and post it on your refrigerator. You can also follow The Common House of Alpena on Facebook (if you see a sunflower, you'll know you are on the correct page!
