Sunday, September 16  -  Hal Gurian, Coordinator
10:30 AM Service:  “Seeking Personal Growth”

The idea of personal growth or personal development has become a massive industry where people move from one concept, book or idea to the next, perhaps inspired and motivated, but without actually addressing what it is that’s creating this endless search for happiness, calm, creativity, clarity, or even perfection in their lives.

 

Sunday, September 23  -  Andi Kramer, Coordinator
10:30 AM Service:  “Seeking Community”

Seeking community will mean different things to many people.  As we continue to engage and learn together, you will undoubtedly find what you are looking for. At the heart of community are the connections we make with those around us, that help to intensify the ways in which we engage, enrich our learning, and validate what we find.

 

Sunday, September 30  -  Amanda Mangiardi, Coordinator
10:30 Service:  “Seeking Self-Actualization - Maslow”

"Self-actualization” represents a concept derived from Humanistic psychological theory and, specifically, from the theory created by Abraham Maslow.  Self-actualization, according to Maslow, represents the growth of an individual toward fulfillment of the highest needs - those needs which support meaning in life, in particular.
