The Metaphysical Group uses Hybrid Meetings

We meet in person at the church in Classroom #1 on Sundays from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. - ending in time to allow for socializing before the 11:00 a.m. service.  Also, the class is available on Zoom.

To receive the Zoom meeting ID and password in advance, you must be on the email list.

If you have not received an email by Friday evening, please send your email address, name, state of residence, and how you found out about us to to be added to the confidential mailing list and receive Sunday’s Zoom link in your email by Sunday morning.




In the month of February, Rev. Russell and Fran Patchett will lead a deep dive into the apocryphal Gospel of Mary Magdalene.  Each class will stand alone; however, to derive maximum benefit from the series, please plan to attend each session!

There is no required text, but students are encouraged to research Mary Magdalene and the Gospel that bears her name before and during the class.

February 5:  What do we really know about Mary Magdalene?

February 12: Mary Magdalene's role at pivotal moments in Jesus' life

February 19:  What the Gospel of Mary Magdalene says

February 26: The lessons of Mary Magdalene for us today



We are always seeking to find qualified presenters. Please let us know if there is somebody you would like to see or a topic that interests you
