Our relationship with God is an on-going life-long journey. We always have growing up to do. We always can grow more fully into who God has created us to be. At Cottonwood we nurture small groups where Adults can gather in community to grow in their faith. We invite you to join us.
Adult Small Groups
Being the church is an astounding gift that takes energy, imagination, intelligence and love. God provides the gifts of worship, prayer and study to nurture us for the journey of faith in the midst of our hurting and broken world. Here are some of the great opportunities that will help us be nurtured for the journey:
Sunday Morning Adult Classes:
Sunday Morning Adult Class: Connie Silliman and Pastor Abbott will co-lead a Biblical studies class that meets at 9:45 a.m. in room 1. Through a video teaching series by Ray Vander Laan the class will be visiting present day archeological sites in the Middle East and learning how they connect to the Scriptures. We invite you to join us for this exciting opportunity. Through April, the classes will focus on the theme of resurrection.
Red Letter Christians: Sue Martin is leading a Sunday morning class discussing the fascinating and powerful dialogue between Tony Campolo and Shane Claiborne about living in community and issues facing our world. They would love to have you join them at 9:45 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall.
Tending the Garden: On Sunday, May 26, 8:30 a.m. Julia and Marshall Welch will lead a 90 minute Sunday school class in the Fellowship Hall based on their book, Tending the Garden. They use the image of gardening to reflect on our spiritual journey. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to tend the garden of your soul.
Monday Evening Bible Study: Each Monday night, we meet in room 5, at 7:00 p.m., to reflect on the Scripture passages for the upcoming Sunday. This class is a great way to prepare for worship and it helps Pastor Tom hear how the congregation is connecting to the text he will be preaching on. We are using the ancient method of Lectio Divina (Holy Listening or Reading) to guide our time in God’s Word. Each week stands alone so please come when it fits into your life. All ages are welcome and there is child care available. We will meet each Monday in January.
Prayer Groups: Presently we have two weekly prayer groups. These groups gather to pray for our world, the church, and our lives. One group meets at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday mornings in the prayer room of the church. The other group meets at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday nights at 7812 S. Roosevelt St., Midvale, UT 84047. All are welcome.
