Bible at Breakfast
We meet on Wednesday mornings from 7:30 to 8:30 at the White Spot on Broadway at Larch to host a chapter of scripture with lively conversation over breakfast. On most Wednesdays Ed Searcy facilitates our gathering. Anywhere from three or four to nine or ten of us may be on hand. Our practice is to discuss a book of the Bible, one chapter per week. We are currently reading the Gospel According to Luke. You are most welcome to drop in for breakfast and conversation.
Sunday Bible Conversation
On most Sunday mornings in the year we gather at 9:00 for an hour in Ed's office (#230 - 6000 Iona Drive) to host the scripture that will be proclaimed in worship later in the morning. Coffee, tea & doughnuts are regular fare as we read, discuss and pray together in preparation for worship. Newcomers to the circle are always welcome.
Forming Faith Together
You do not need to be an expert in order to participate or to feel that you belong. Bring yourself, your curiosity, your questions and your life experience
Every year we invite forty-seven Uhillians to each host a scripture passage, listening for a word from God to our life together and then offering a response - expressed in words or art or music. We publish this collection of responses online and invite one another to the discipline of reading, hosting and praying these texts through the season of Lent. The 2013 edition is online here.
Seasonal Bible Study
During Lent and again in the Fall we host weekly gatherings to explore scripture together. Watch this space for information on our upcoming plans for the Fall.
Partnering with First United
We invite participation in our partnership with the First United Church Mission in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. There are a variety of ways to join in this partnership. Every Sunday we invite offerings of food and men's clothing for the Emergency Food & Clothing Cupboard at First. On the fourth Sunday of each month we gather following worship to prepare twelve dozen sandwiches to be served along with coffee on Monday morning at First.
