Ministries

Centering Prayer Group

Meetings are on Monday afternoons in the Historic Church at 7:00 pm.

Contemplation is a traditional form of Christian prayer rooted in Scripture. Centering Prayer is a modern expression of this sacred practice. Do you hunger for a deeper life of prayer – a support system to help you sustain that prayerful, spiritual growth?

We invite you to join us to learn more about Centering Prayer and to pray it with us each week!
