Jesus said, “Come, follow me,” but what does that look like? If you are new to following Jesus or have been following him for many years but wish to renew and deepen your walk with him, this class is for you. With Scripture as our guidebook, we’ll consider what it means to be with Jesus, become like Jesus, and do what Jesus did. Specifically, we’ll explore five places where Jesus promises to meet us, the role the Holy Spirit and the local church play in helping us become more like him, and what it means to be on mission with Jesus as a disciple. Two of the will be experience-based: a retreat, where we’ll engage Sabbath alongside other members of the church community, and a service project, where we’ll roll up our sleeves and spend time as a group serving others. Time: Sundays, 8:30 – 9:30am Dates: Oct. 1st – Nov. 12th Location: The Classroom (Main Street Landing, 2nd floor) Contact: Abby, Abby@wellchurchvt.com, Adam, Adam@wellchurchvt.com
In these times of climate change, global conflicts, and economic inequality, what guidance can we find from the wisdom in Ecclesiastes?

Christian culture, literature, and media have a lot to say about how to build a thriving marriage. But what about the single life and thriving when you’re not married (whether for a season or long-term)? This group will serve as a monthly touchpoint where single adults of all ages and stages (including never married, never want to marry, divorced, widowed, etc.) can reflect on the unique joys and challenges of singleness and discuss topics that apply to our lives such as community, friendships, dating/not dating, ministry, and more. Time: Sundays, early afternoon Dates: Sept. 9th , Oct. 15th , Nov. 12th , Dec. 17th (These are tentative) Location: The first meeting (Sept. 10th , 12pm) will be a BYO picnic at the Lakefront Contact: Annalee Pratt, firstname.lastname@example.org
Join us for an eight-week journey through Barbara Brown Taylor’s book, “Learning to Walk in the Dark,” where we will follow Taylor’s lead through an exploration of darkness (both in scripture and in her story), and learn to spot God at work in the dimly-lit spaces of our own stories. Time: Wednesdays, 6 – 7:30pm Dates: Sept. 27 th – Nov. 15 th Location: Burlington, South End Contact: Jordan Otruba, email@example.com

When you run out of your own words, sometimes it’s helpful to lean on the prayers of others. Liturgy is a way of doing just that. In this small group, we’ll engage a short liturgy each week, featuring Scripture, traditional and contemporary prayers, and moments for silent reflection. We’ll also take time to check in with each other and pray for one another. Time: Wednesdays, 6:30 – 8:00pm Dates: Oct. 11 th – Nov. 15th Location: Williston Contact: Alyssa Sangrey, email@example.com, or Abby Carroll, firstname.lastname@example.org
