Cedar Lane is a congregation made up of 700+ congregants. In order to provide interconnectedness and truly celebrate our diverse community, we strongly urge all members to find a place within one of our Small Group Ministries, specifically our Soul Matters programming.
EXPLORE OUR Small Groups MINISTRIES
Cedar Lane centers our worship life on a timeless spiritual theme each month. Part of our thematic ministry includes our Soul Matters Small Group Ministry. Similar to other small group ministry programs, participants in Soul Matters gather monthly for opening and closing centering, personal check in and reflection on a spiritual question. However, these groups will invite us into even deeper engagement by drawing on the monthly theme, offering diverse resources beyond the group experience, and inviting participants into spiritual practice.
Cedar Lane offers a variety of support groups - our current groups include: Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Aging Support, Caring for Family Members Long-term Chronic Illness Support Group, 12-Step Food Addicts, Long-Term Chronic Illness Support Group, PFLAG, Trans Families PFLAG, Trans* Unity, as well as our Healing Choir, which travels to those who would may not be able to get to church and would benefit from the healing powers of music and song.
The Alliance originally started as The Women's Alliance in the 1950s and invited men to join later on. There are currently 80 or so members. Membership is open to all who wish to join, but since most of the activities are during the day, most members are retired. The members help to serve the needs of the group and to the general congregation. The general meeting is a potluck lunch on the 2nd Thursday of each month from Sept. to June.
