Sacred Ground Dialogue circles

Sacred Ground is a 10- session film and readings-based dialogue series on race, grounded in faith. 

Small groups are invited to walk through chapters of America’s history of race and racism, while weaving in threads of family story, economic class, and political and regional identity. 

Groups will begin meeting the week of September 13, 2020. An email will be sent out the week of September 6, 2020 to determine meeting days and times.

Encounters with Christ

At some point in life - we have all experienced a genuine encounter with Christ. In these encounters with deity we still maintain our "freedom of will." We could choose to follow Christ or continue on our own path.  
Plan to join with us this fall for a 6-week study focused on some of the most engaging and well-known encounters with Christ as recorded in the Gospels. How are these encounters like our encounter with God?
For example: 
the woman caught in adultery,
the Samaritan woman at the well,
the invalid at the pool of Bethsaida,
Martha and Mary,
and more..... 
This program will meet via Zoom on Sunday mornings from 9:00-9:50 a.m. before worship begins. Start date will be Sunday, September  13, 2020. Please use the button below to register and to receive the Zoom link.

Finding god with in - centering prayer

Centering Prayer is a method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, prayer in which we experience God's presence within us.This method of prayer is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship.

Centering Prayer is not meant to replace other kinds of prayer. Rather, it adds depth of meaning to all prayer and facilitates the movement from more active modes of prayer into a receptive prayer of resting in God. Centering Prayer emphasizes prayer as a personal relationship with God and as a movement beyond conversation with Christ to communion with Him.

Lead by Deacon Tom Morelli, anew group will enter into this practice the week of September 13, 2020.
