Congregational Connections
-Ongoing-
Looking for a chance to connect and chat - maybe about the best takeout you've found, your new job, or your one-year-old taking her first steps? Sign up for this fall's Congregational Connections. Nurture Committee will create a series of rotating groups, a different group each time. Each group will have a Zoom host to handle scheduling and ask a few questions to get conversation going. Each conversation will last about an hour.

Telling Our Stories
Saturday, Oct. 3, 4 pm
Sometimes Presbyterians like us at New York Avenue are hesitant to share our stories of faith, the stories that have shaped who we are.  We don't want to seem too pushy or awkward or "out there," yet how else can we share the Good News that brings so much meaning to our lives together and apart? Hillary Webster will facilitate two classes where we will take time to share personal faith stories together to deepen our connections with each other and practice being more comfortable talking about our personal faith.

Introducing the Enneagram
Thursday, October 1, 8, 15 and 22, 7:00 pm
John Calvin once said, “without knowledge of self, there is no knowledge of God.” Join Rev. Shortlidge for a four-week exploration of the Enneagram, a personality typing system, that highlights nine different but interconnected personality types. Advance reservation by September 27th required. Please email heather.shortlidge@nyapc.org. Participants are asked to attend all four classes and read portions of the book The Road Back To You: An Enneagram Journey to Self-Discovery by Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Staible prior to each session. The class will only be held if at least six people register in advance.

Why do I pray? How do I pray? Miriam Dewhurst will lead our discussion, sharing her experiences with prayer and then we will talk about our own experiences with prayer - the challenges and the joys.
