·Sunday "Meeting Warm-Ups," 9:00am until 10:00, Sundays at OMM, until (and including) May 14th.These warm ups are for our spirits, heart, mind and body, to help build community as expansion of our 2016 “Quake Up” retreat theme.

April 20--"Human Orchestra"
Everyone is welcome.
Check back frequently--we'll try to keep this list up-to-date. If you have ideas or feedback, contact the Adult Religious Education Committee.
