Belonging to God: James Martin’s Learning to Pray
Meets Sundays (beginning January 9) | 10:15 – 11:00 a.m. | In Roper Hall & via Zoom
We long for connection with God – for a sense of real belonging to the One who created and loves us. This connection comes through prayer – through cultivating a relationship with God. Prayer is conversation, presence with, and deep listening for God’s voice. There is no one secret formula for prayer; rather everyone can discover forms that work best for them. In this class we’ll explore the rich history of different styles of prayer with a view toward enriching our connection with our gracious and loving God.

Meets Tuesdays | 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. | In the Parlor
Are you new to Christianity and interested in learning more? Are you new to the Episcopal Church and have questions? Maybe you have been Episcopalian for years and long to go deeper in your faith? If so, we invite you to join us on The Way.
The Way meets weekly on Tuesday evenings from 7-9 pm. Each week, we study the Gospel of Mark together and then, after a break, participate in a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, the Episcopal tradition, and our baptismal covenant. Participants who wish to receive the sacrament of baptism and/or confirmation (including reaffiramtion of their baptismal covenant) will be prepared for these sacraments through this course.
The course meets in person. Those interested in participating but unable to attend in person classes are invited to contact Mtr. Rebecca (email@example.com). Childcare is available upon advance reservation.
