Centering Prayer Group
Meetings are on Monday evenings 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!

Prayer Shawl Ministries
All are welcome to join us on Wednesday afternoons from 1pm to 3pm in the Parish Hall, Classroom B.
Come and knit or crochet prayer shawls that we give to families after they have lost a loved one. We also make burden bears for Trillium Woods and are looking for help in sewing the bears, stuffing the bears and getting them ready for the patients of Trillium Woods. As we craft prayer shawls and burden bears we pray. We take time to socialize, too.
