Faith Formation in Nature
"What started as a seed..."
Salem's "Altar in the Garden" program has returned!
What started out as a thought, a prayer, and some good coffee at a local Stillwater shop has turned into a reality and we invite you to come and join us for the "Altar In The Garden" faith formation.
What is this you ask? Some time ago, a seedling of an idea was presented that we, as the church, offer creative ways for individuals to gather in God's name. Something that opened our arms and our doors just a little bit wider, and allowed us to love others a little bit louder. A "Dream-ing Team" was formed, and after much additional prayer, thought, conversation, and note-taking, this team landed on the concept of creating space for learning and praying together with children and families (and even their pets!). Teaching one another how to connect with and praise God (and God's creatures) in nature with opportunities for community outreach and connection as well.
This creation-based avenue for worship will be held on the 3rd Sunday of the month from 3:00 - 4:00pm at the Stillwater Botanical Garden
. Each sessions weaves in a theme that includes learning about selves and others as we learn about God together.Will you join us?All interested will gather at the South end of The Botanic Garden at Oklahoma State (3300 W. 6th Street, Stillwater, OK at 3:00 pm. Lawn chairs and clothes comfortable for the weather are recommended.
