This study focuses on the lectionary readings for the following Sunday, and is led by the Rector, Clergy, and other Lay Leaders. Coffee and light treats are provided and all are welcome!
Rector's Bible Study

Sandy and Jack Belmont hold a Centering Prayer Group that meets in the Parish Library on Friday mornings 10:30 am - 12:00 pm. Centering Prayer is a form of meditation that is easily learned. No prior experience is needed. The exercise involves a 20-minute silent “sit.” The “sit” is surrounded by an opening prayer, a reading from scripture and ended with a reading and short reflection of an agreed upon book or spiritual article.
