Journaling to Find Your Inner Voice

We’ll explore the journaling group’s use of writing as a way of finding connection to themselves and others.

The “Journaling With Jean” Small Group Ministry, led by Jean Skinner, started meeting every other Monday during the COVID pandemic. The group is now on summer hiatus, but is always open to anyone. 

This service will be led by Jean Skinner and members of the group.

We will have live music during this service.

If you haven’t registered ahead but want to attend on Sunday morning, please come on over! We should have plenty of room this week you will just have to sign in at the door.
