Each week Extravagance UCC hosts a virtual Bible Study via zoom.us called: Transformed by Scripture.
The term “thin places” emerged from ancient Celtic spiritually to describe places where the veil between this world & the eternal world is thin.
Extravagance UCC is a geographically dispersed, online faith community, that welcomes persons of all faith traditions or none, ages, races, nationalities, sexual orientations, gender identities & expressions, family configurations, economic abilities, and mental and physical capacities. Digital natives, immigrants, ex-pats and refugees are welcome.
