****The church is closed as of 3/12/2020.  All meetings and groups are either cancelled or meeting online.  

Morning Reflections

Morning Reflections will begin Sept. 21. Join church members Kim Dunovan and Sharon Conlon Monday-Friday 8:15am to 8:45am for a period of reflection and silent meditation/prayer on Zoom. Whether you’re seeking a regular spiritual practice, or just wake-up some mornings needing a little extra support and connection to our church community. This is an informal drop-in and all are welcome! Each gathering will open with a short reading, followed by shared reflections and time for silent meditation/prayer. There is no need to purchase a copy, but for those who want to follow along, we will begin reading from Eknath Easwaran’s book Words To Live By: Daily Inspiration for Spiritual Living.  Email Kim for the Zoom link at kimberly.dunovan@gmail.com.

Compassionate Communication Group

This group meets online using Zoom.  Using Compassionate Communication developed by Marshall Rosenberg, PhD, we learn to connect with ourselves and others with empathy and to act in greater harmony with our values. Learning to communicate more compassionately, like speaking a new language, takes practice. If you want to attend this class via Zoom, please contact Suzanne: at nvcsuz@gmail.com for details.

ROLLBACKS: An Assault Against Life on Earth  Zoom Presentation

On October 5th at 7pm, please join the Zoom presentation of ROLLBACKS: An Assault Against Life on Earth. This 29-minute film will be followed by a discussion and a guide for action. The impact of climate change is undeniable and catastrophic. Recent and ongoing fires in California are a heartbreaking demonstration of this. This administration has met this crisis by systematically and efficiently rolling back an alarming number of regulations, reversing past policy progress and putting our very existence at risk. WATCH IT because we are in a crisis and urgent action is essential. "This film is powerful!" - Bill McKibben, 350.org
