Faith Journey Groups
2015-2016 Faith Journey Groups
Temple Emanuel will be starting several new Faith Journey Groups this coming year. This was one of our most successful programs in the past and we are pleased to once again offer it to the Temple Emanuel community.
Join a Faith Journey Group and have an opportunity to reclaim your own Journey of Faith. Take time to reflect upon sacred moments that shaped your life. Think of the mentors who helped shape your faith. Put God to the test in your most challenging questions. Re-experience the power of prayer in contemporary language. Seek the values that matter most to pass on to future generations.
Each Faith Journey Group will have a maximum number of participants and will meet in the homes of group members over the course of 5 sessions. The purpose of a Faith Journey Group is to enable us to deepen our sense of spirituality and enhance relationships within the group by focusing on personal aspects of faith.
Fall group starts in October ~ Spring group starts in February
Specific dates and times will be set by the Group and the Group Leader.
Please contact Diane Raphael in the Temple Office to let us know of your interest!
Fall Session: Leader, Cantor Rosalie Boxt (for adults with children in ECC, Kindergarten and 1st Grade)
Spring Session: Leader, Rabbi Warren Stone - CANCELLED: The Spring Session has been cancelled. We hope to include this course in our Adult Education program in the Fall.
