We invite you to consider participating in one of our small groups. Check for details on our calendar page.
Small Groups and Classes
We love to gather to explore God's Word and the theological works of Emanuel Swedenborg, and to talk about what it means to live what the Lord teaches us.
When: every Monday from noon to 12:30 pm (Eastern time)
Where: Zoom (online) Click on: Zoom link
Pastor Nathan leads this half-hour reflection and sharing time every Monday. We start with a brief check in, then we meditate on a brief quotation from the works of Emanuel Swedenborg, and we conclude by sharing any thoughts, feelings, or insights that came up during the meditation time. It is a refreshing opportunity to gather and benefit from a brief time of concentrated reflection. We come away from the time together spiritually nourished and ready to continue our day.
Twice a month Thursday nights from 8-9 pm ET via Zoom. Generally (with a few exceptions), we meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays. Check the Calendar page on this website for specifics.

Because of the pandemic, we have limited our programs and events. We look forward to when we can safely get together more for community-oriented offerings.
When: We love enjoying refreshments on the Sundays after church, when we meet at Congregation B'nai Torah
Where: in the lobby (with face coverings during the Covid era) or outdoors (weather permitting)
Enjoying social time over refreshments together is one of the best tools for building community.
