Spirit Spaces Information, open 11:25am -12:00pm

All Spirit Spaces will feature a monthly themes with opportunities for exploration, creation, and/or reflection. As children and youth leave the worship service, they are invited to choose a Spirit Space (spiritual practice) each Sunday. They may choose a different room each week or stay with the same. Through these choices of spiritual practices, we celebrate the wonder of life and build connections of respect and love.

Spirit Spaces time follows this format: a brief check-in, chalice lighting, themed sharing, spiritual practice/response, and chalice extinguishing.
