Spirit’s Haven Contemplative Service~ 

Refresh, Renew, Reinvigorate!

On the first Sunday evening of each month at 7 PM over Zoom, you are invited to a time of tranquility, a time of listening to the still small Voice, a time of growing closer in relationship to the Holy, a time of being still. Each evening will include a spiritual reading or two followed by a time of silence for contemplation.

The next Spirit’s Haven Contemplation will be on January 3rd, at 7:00 PM. Led by Paula Elizabeth, KCC’s former interim pastor; we are excited that she and her husband Rev. Ross Putnam recently became members of KCC! Paula is an ordained minister, a spiritual director, a coach for clergy, congregations and leaders, and a counselor. She has been leading contemplative services for many years as well as offering other contemplative practices.

The Zoom links to join Spirit’s Haven Contemplative Service will be published in the Weekly Prayers and Announcements the Friday before Spirit’s Haven Contemplative Service meets.
