Men’s Group Study
An informal study for men of all ages, using books and video series. Meets on Saturdays, 8:30-10:00am via zoom.
Nooma is a fellowship time for women, meeting the first Sunday of the month at 8:00 AM in the Multi-Purpose Room for breakfast and faith conversations. The word Nooma is a phonetic spelling of a Greek word which means "wind", "spirit", or “breath.” All women are invited to join us, taking a little time for ourselves to breathe and address spiritual topics together.
Soul Stretch Yoga
“You’re not only amazing. You’re enough. You’re beautiful. You’re wanted. You’re chosen. You’re called. You’ve got what it takes…not just to survive, but to change the world.”
For our next yoga and meditation series, we will center our minds and our hearts on meditations from the book: You’re Already Amazing: Embracing Who You Are, Becoming All God Created You to Be by Holley Gerth.
In every class, you’ll learn to care for your God-given temple by increasing flexibility, balance, circulation, and strength, and decreasing stress, body weight, and blood pressure. Your mind will find peace in the encouragement of God’s word. And, your spirit will enjoy renewal through the day’s devotional theme.
Please check soulstretch.org for exact days and times.
Each 6-week series is only $66 for unlimited yoga at all of our locations. Four-class punch cards, family savings rates, and early-bird savings are also available. Try your first class for free! To save your place, please enroll in advance at soulstretch.org or call 248.429.YOGA. All levels, from absolute beginner to experienced yoga practitioners are invited.
We are a social group consisting of approximately 35 members beyond the age of 60. We usually meet the third Saturday of the month, September through May. Activities range from table games to theater to events outside the city. We give service to the church in varied ways and enjoy building friendships. If you are interested, we would love to have you join us.
Women’s Study Group
Women are invited to attend lively discussions based on the Bible, videos, books and other media chosen by the group. We meet every Tuesday at 9:30 am for approximately 2 hours via zoom.
Evening Star Circle
Evening Star Circle is a multi-generational group of Nark Park women that meet monthly to exchange ideas, enjoy one another’s company, share a program and light desserts, and support the United Methodist Women. We are always open to visitors and new members and encourage you to come and join us for a meeting.
We meet on the 4th Monday of the month at 7 pm. Regular meetings are held every month except July and August. In lieu of December’s meeting, we attend the United Methodist Women’s program; in January we have an evening out to dinner; and in June we do a picnic potluck.
We look forward to seeing you!
Filmgoers is a group that watches pre-selected, contemporary movies at their own convenience, and then come together for a discussion of issues raised by the film(s). We ordinarily meet on the fourth Sunday evening of each month beginning at 7:00pm.
