Steeped in the Sacred: A Prayer Adventure

You are invited to immerse yourself in the spirit of Prayer on Thursday evenings in June.  Starting on June 11, 18 and 25th from 6:30 pm to 8 pm in the chapel, we will open our hearts and lives to God’s surging and swirling spirit.  Using videos from Rob Bell, insights from theologians and mystics, as well as our own experience and questions, we will discuss and even practice praying together.  This will be a wonderful and worshipful way to engage…especially for those who are unable to come on Sunday mornings.  Please join us for this prayer adventure in June…and bring a friend.
