Events and Happenings

Join us this month as we expand our schedule and offer more opportunities to pray and practice with us. This months new activities include Thursday evening Centering Prayer (7pm), Sunday morning Tai Chi (7:30am), and weekday Morning Office (Brief liturgy and silent prayer 7am). Beginning August 23rd bible study will cover Adam Hamilton’s Making Sense of the Bible. Contemplative Conversations will incorporate poems of the mystics in our faith discussions. Construction is nearly finished, a few finishing touches required downstairs.

New Events:

Weekday Morning Prayer Office 7am. We begin by reading the daily divine hours which consists of small scripture readings (Psalms & Gospel) and short prayers. We then finish with 20 minutes of silent prayer ending by 7:30. Great way to set intention and invite God into your day.

Centering Prayer with Pastor Judy Thursdays 7pm. Beginners and long time practitioners welcome. Instruction cards can be provided. Two 20 minutes sessions with a very brief walking meditation in-between. Guests are welcome to leave after the first sit during the walk.

Tai Chi with Karyn Snow Sundays 7:30am. This is a gentle and balanced Tai Chi class suitable for just about anyone. We do a standing meditation/breathing in the beginning of class followed by warm-ups. Then we will begin learning the postures. The last 5-10 minutes will be Qi Gong movements. This is a free will offering/donation class. Anyone welcome.
