Congregational Life

Our life together is marked by our enjoyment and love of one another experienced in small groups of adventure, support, fun, and community building.

While worship is at the center of our church life, we like to have fun along the way and celebrate each other just as we are.

Check our calendar below for upcoming Congregational Life events.

Sisters on Sojourn

All women, regardless of age, are invited to join in this relaxed and easy-going group with no rules, no dues, no officers. We are just women coming together to hear each other’s stories, provide support and encouragement, and, occasionally, learn something.

If you wish to be added to the email list for announcements about upcoming meetings, please email Pastor Laurie at LaurieH@gablesucc.org.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

We gather to create beautiful prayer shawls to share with members of our church family who are ill. You do not have to know how to knit or crochet – someone will teach you. If you are looking for a ministry of prayer and care for others, this may be it. Check our calendar below for upcoming circles!

If you wish to be added to the email list for announcements about upcoming gatherings, please email Pastor Laurie at LaurieH@gablesucc.org.

Expats and Vurchers

Whether you live across the Pond, on the Gulf of Mexico, in the Carolinas, or the hinterlands of the East or West Coast, please join our special fellowship group.

Once a month, we gather from around the world to check in with our Gables UCC members and friends living outside of South Florida. Whether you have been a former member or friend of the church and have moved away, or have found a home with us virtually, we invite you to be connected through this special group just for you.

No matter who you are or where you live, you are an important part of our church family.

To receive notices, email Pastor Laurie at LaurieH@gablesucc.org.

Garden Warriors

If you like to garden, pull weeds, plant flowers or just help make the exterior landscape of our historic church beautiful, then join us for a Garden Warriors’ workday. All volunteers will be welcomed and appreciated (kids too)! We gather on the second Saturday of each month at 9:00 a.m. Check our calendar below for upcoming workdays.

Young Adult Gatherings

Every month, our 20-30s young adults gather for brunch, conversation, and support. This is a great opportunity to meet new people, make friends, and learn more about the ministries of the church. Periodically, we also host book clubs, social outings, and educational events.

If you are a young adult or college student that would like to join in the fun and the fellowship, email Pastor Aaron at AaronL@gablesucc.org.

Fun and Adventurous People

Join us for visits to museums, restaurants, gardens, and other interesting and enjoyable places throughout the year. These events usually take place during the day. All are welcome. Check our calendar below for upcoming events. Over the past years we have traveled to Germany to study the Reformation and Martin Luther; and in 2020 we traveled to the Middle East and Israel and Palestine. Once it is safe to travel again, we will pack our bags and embark on a very special adventure.
