Lectionary Series — Join us in the Fall (beginning Sept. 18) when we continue to explore the meaning of Biblical texts, primarily the Gospel, and uncover the deeper meaning of how the Word Made Flesh still operates in our own lives. In discovering the power of the Word, we hope that participants will prayerfully read the Bible on a daily basis to discover how it can speak to each of us individually. This class meets in the Parlor. Led by Dr. Dick Hooper.

Sunday Centering Prayer Group (Ongoing) — Centering Prayer is a method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, in which we experience God's presence within us. We begin by taking a few minutes to go over the basic guidelines of the practice for anyone who is new. We then sit together in the 20-minute prayer period, followed by a brief time for sharing and intercessory prayer. All are welcome — newcomers and experienced practitioners. This class meets in the Centering Prayer room on the administrative hallway. The facilitator is Joan White.
