Bread is a key theme for this year’s online devotional, which will continue beyond the four weeks of Advent through the 12 Days of Christmas and end on Epiphany, Jan. 6.
This devotional invites you to be part of building a tighter-knit community right where you are. Share the devotional with friends and family. Read and reflect together as a small group meeting over Zoom or in person. You are also encouraged to bake bread and share the loaves as gifts with others. Each Friday in Advent, a bread recipe will be offered. Make more than one loaf so that you can share one and keep the other to be part of your Sunday Advent practice of having a simple meal as you light the candles around the Advent Wreath. The devotional can be found on the web at https://www.presbyterianmission.org/ministries/today/advent2021 or by clicking HERE.

This class, facilitated by Rev. Diane Shoaf, will begin after Labor Day and end before Thanksgiving. Participants will use a process based on listening to one’s heart while reading and a listening circle for processing what we’ve read as a group. The club will meet on Saturdays 9:00-10:30 am. Our selection is Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson. Email Diane Shoaf at: email@example.com to register and to receive the class link.
Are you ready to read and share thoughts and feelings and learn to be a better Christian all at the same time? Starting over the two-week period of September 19th to October 2nd, we will begin our small group sessions on the book of kindness! These groups will meet two times a month, for approximately one hour, to cover one chapter in the book and build relationships with each other. You can pick which day of the week and time will work for you, we tried to set up a variety. Choice of groups are as follows:
- Sunday morning 9 AM
- Sunday Noon after church
- Tuesday morning 10:00 AM
- Wednesday morning 7:30 AM will remain on zoom
- Wednesday noon (bring your own lunch)
- Wednesday evening 7:00 PM
The meetings will be held on Zoom if COVID Act Now for Miami-Dade County is still magenta, but when it becomes red, or better, the MSPC campus will open up if the group wants to gather at the church, stay on zoom, or wherever the group decides to meet. We hope these groups will encourage building relationships, having some fun, and learning new ways of kindness to show our love in Christ.
