Classes will be led by Kimberly Hudgins Taylor, a certified Holy Yoga instructor.

According to their website, “Holy Yoga is experiential worship specifically created to deepen your connection to Christ. Our sole purpose is to combine world class yoga with a Christ honoring experience that offers an opportunity to believers and non-believers alike to authentically connect with God. We do this by integrating His Word, prayer, worship and the physical practice of yoga to contemporary and Christian music.”

Fire Circles

Meet people.  Grow in faith.  Light the fire!

What is it?

Fire Circles, small groups at Circle.

What will we be doing?

Simple bible reflection, sharing, and prayer.

How much preparation do I have to do?  Is there a book to read?

You can do as little or as much preparation as you want, and you can read the Bible!  The scriptures we cover will be the same scriptures covered in the previous week’s sermon.  The focus will be on application: “How does this apply to my life now?”

What if I’m not a Bible expert?

You don’t have to be a Bible expert.  It’s not about data, it’s about application: “How does this apply to my life now?”

How many groups will there be?

Three separate groups in three separate locations with three separate leaders.

 Which one do I come to? 

Whatever one you want!  And if you want to try out different groups, that’s fine too.

How many weeks will we meet?

Each group will meet for four weeks.  On the fifth week, we’ll all get together and have a dinner party.

What if I can’t make it to all four weeks?

Come anyway!  Come when you can.

What about kids?  Pet allergies?  Food?

Some sites will have childcare (see below).  Two of three sites have no pets in the house (see below).  Two of three sites have the option to grab some takeout and come early, but no meals will be provided by any site.

Do I need to RSVP?

Not required, but golly it would be helpful!

Can I invite friends?

Always.

The Underground Coffee Project

Circle of Peace supports Tierra Nueva and The Underground Coffee Project by purchasing their coffee and serving it at our services.

Tierra Nueva accompanies men and women leaving America’s “underground” of crime, jail, prison, addiction, debt, and living in the shadows. Together they find a community of belonging, compassion, and they put their hands to new work.

Some of these recovering ex-offenders are now small-batch, artisan coffee roasters.
