A Mindfulness And The 12 Steps Meditation Meeting
In this meeting we focus on Step 11 and the spiritual practices of prayer and mindfulness meditation.  Each month, we explore one of the Twelve Steps and how prayer and mindfulness meditation can expand our awareness and improve our life in recovery.

Monthly Social Justice Book Club Meeting
Join us as we continue our study of racism in America and how we can make a difference. We will alternate months—a book on white privilege with one from the black perspective. Contact Nancy Ashley at 503-880-0308 for more information.

Sundays, 6:00 PM
PCSL Writers Group
Our writer’s group is open to new members each September. We meet every three Sundays at 6:00 PM. No publishing experience necessary, just a committed desire to write. With support from other writers we accomplish miracles (including newly published books!). For more information and specific location, contact Kathy Marshack at (360) 977-1196.

In Fall, 2017, the Writer’s Group published a booklet documenting a fiction writing challenge that they completed. If you would like to read the short stories, you can download or read them here.
