Searcher and Explorer Class

The Searcher and Explorer Class is an open attendance class that explores different topics about the Episcopal Church for those who may be wondering what the Episcopal Church is all about, how worship works, and what all those books in the pews are about.

Centering Prayer

Centering Prayer meets at 9:15 am in the Library on Sunday mornings. Centering Prayer is a method of silent prayer in which we experience God’s presence within us, closer than breathing, closer than thinking, closer than consciousness itself.  This discipline emphasizes prayer as a personal relationship with God and as a movement beyond conversation with Christ to communion with Him.
