Nativity offers many opportunities for adults to learn as well as serve. For a complete listing of activities, check the church calendar on our homepage.

Small Groups

Nativity has many and varied small group, meditation, and Bible study opportunities for people in all phases of life. These usually are on-going or run for 4-6 weeks in the Fall or Spring.

Book Discussion Group – meets monthly, usually on the fourth Monday of the month at 7:00 pm to discuss books that the group has chosen and read before the group meeting.

Spirituality and Watercolor Group – meets on Thursday mornings in the Fall and the Spring for a six week session.

Bible Study – sessions are held in the fall and spring. Check the calendar on the homepage or the newsletter for further information.

Women’s Guild – is a women’s fellowship group which meets the first Monday of the month at 12:00 noon. Participants are asked to bring a sandwich. Beverages and dessert are provided. After a brief business meeting, there is generally an interesting program or speaker.

Retreats – Twice each year, fall and spring, we hold a Spiritual Retreat for adults. These retreats cover a variety of topics designed to help participants on their spiritual journey. Recent topics have included: Spirituality of the Environment, Poetry and Spirituality, Meyers-Briggs Personality Inventory, and Journeying with our Muslim neighbors.
