A favorite part of Mountainside life has been vocation groups–these are dinner groups with 8-12 people journeying with each other for a season, as we discover what God is up to among us in the contexts of our life stories, what we do for work, and the life of the church. All are welcome to join a group, no matter what stage of life or transition(s) in which you may find yourself.

Women’s Group – Next gathering: July 8th 9:30 am to 12:00 pm.

Location: The Mooney’s Home, 627 Park Rose, Monrovia, 91016

Saint for Focus: Josephine Bakhita of Sudan

Sign up to bring a Sudanese breakfast food item.

Women of all stages of life are welcome to join us as we focus on a different female saint, engaging in various practices of prayer, eating, singing, and story-telling that recall their particular way of life. If you are interested in joining us or have any questions, contact Naomi (naomimehlyokota@gmail.com) or Misty (mistyeastonwise@mountainsidecommunion.org).
