Our Ministries

Reid Memorial believes that Christian formation and education never ends, that’s why we strive to offer engaging, current, and life applicable opportunities for study and deepening understanding of our faith.

Presbyterians could be described as life-long students. Our denomination has historically, and continues, to place value on spending time in study, conversation, and spiritual formation as an important part of our life of discipleship. To that end, we look for ways to engage that are creative, transformative, and applicable to everyday life.

Looking for an opportunity to meet and engage over spiritually based studies with other women of the church, then this group is for you!  Topics range from books of the Bible to marriage, family, and women-focused issues.  Child care is available.  Join us Wednesdays at 5:00pm in the Mary Read Room.

Solas Bible Study Class

This long-standing Bible study is led by Rev. Nadine Ellsworth-Moran every Tuesday, at 9:00am in person and via Zoom.  This class is serious, but fun with lively conversation, and seeks to engage the Bible both in terms of its historical context and its modern interpretation.

Men’s Monday Morning Bible Study

This men’s group has thrived and grown over the past few years and is known for its thoughtful discussions of faith and theology and opportunities for the men of Reid Memorial to begin their week with encouragement in the Spirit and fellowship.

Meeting virtually for Bible study, Mondays at 6:00am with Woody Belangia leading.

Reid Memorial is a participating Stephen Ministry congregation.  This means that we have members who have volunteered to receive over 50 hours of training from Stephen Leaders and are commissioned by the congregation to serve in this important pastor care role.  Stephen Ministers know how to walk alongside members who may be struggling with grief, illness, job loss, divorce, or any of the myriad of issues that create distress in our lives, through a caring, confidential, and one-on-one relationship.  While Stephen Ministers are not clinical counselors, they can accompany those needing a little extra care and attention as they find their way to spiritual wholeness. Maintaining strict confidentiality allows Stephen Ministers to enter into delicate and personal situations and offer a safe and trust-centered space for that individual to heal.

Faith Seeking Understanding (FSU) is an annual event, typically held in January, that brings a theological topic into conversation with our everyday world.  Each year, a speaker is invited to lead us in worship and then expand on their chosen subject through an interactive presentation on Sunday afternoon.   We strive to invite engaging and dynamic speakers with a particular perspective that will spark conversation and thoughtful reflection.  This event is for all members of Reid Memorial as well as the greater community.

For detailed information on all our ministry opportunities, be sure to sign up to receive our weekly email called “This Week at Reid.”

We welcome you to come worship with us.
