Prayer, understood broadly as “expanding the heart in the presence of God” (John Calvin), is an essential component in building a school of love and community of compassion. Weekly Sunday worship and frequent eucharistic practice ground us as community.  In addition, we seek to provide a range of other opportunities and supports for deepening lives of prayer.

ADVENT ‘SACRED PAUSES’ In this time of awaiting and preparation, you’re invited to join us to pause in silence together. Each Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. during Advent, we will gather on Zoom to reflect on the Advent themes of Hope (Dec. 2), Peace (Dec. 9), Joy (Dec. 16) and Love (Dec. 23). Join Yvonne Fisher, Larry Neumark, Anne Teresa and Leslie Williams for readings, silence, and reflection. Contact the church office for the Zoom link. 

Other opportunities for prayer and deep listening, including on and off site retreats, and special services associated with the liturgical year, are offered throughout each year. 

We also encourage spiritual companionship as an essential spiritual practice, through both one-on-one spiritual direction as well as small groups.  Contact Ethel Hornbeck for more information.
