On Wednesdays, starting June 5th, from 4:00 to 6:00 pm, we are offering an open time for anyone who would like to stop by the church one time, a couple times, or every week this summer.  This time can be for unburdening your heart with a problem or concern, for centering yourself with writing, prayer, art, or nature, or for continuing your healing journey through sharing stories, struggles, epiphanies, and successes.  We offer alone time, one-on-one conversations with a compassionate listener, and/or the support and fellowship of a group.  We will meet and base our Listening Post in the Library and go out from there, if desired.  We are hoping this time will be a respite, a breathing space, a pause, from the stressors and demands of life and give you some relief, peace, and hope.

Listening Cafes - July 28th from 10:45am-Noon
This is a time for us, as a congregation, to gather and listen to one another.  We will take time to hear from one other what we value about First UMC, how the decisions of the global church have been affecting us, and how we can support each other during this time of transition in the UMC. 

Can’t make it to a Listening Cafe but want to share your thoughts and feelings or have questions about the Global UMC?  Pastor Leah will be at Jules Bistro in St. Cloud from 12:30-3pm on Mondays in June.
