Ongoing Programs


Centering Prayer
with Greg Johnson &
Herb Kaighan

2nd & 4th Wednesdays
Please come and join us in prayer. No reservation needed. Centering Prayer is a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship. It is a movement beyond conversation to communion and union with God. It prepares us for the gift of contemplation. Centering Prayer is not meant to replace other kinds of prayer; rather it casts new light & depth of meaning on all types of prayer. Come and pray with us. Cost: donation
