We invite you to gather to practice an ancient method of “being still” and going to your “inner room” and entering into silent prayer in which we quiet our minds and open ourselves to our God. Centering Prayer is not meant to replace other kinds of prayer, but rather it often casts a new light and depth on the meaning of them. Please check our Centering Prayer page for more information. If you have any questions, please call Jennifer Dousset or Willie Hoffer, or contact them through the church office at 542-2167 or .
Centering Prayer is a meditation process that invites us to enter an inner sacred space to quiet our minds, open our hearts and take rest in the Love of God. You will be gently led into the silence. No experience needed!
We have had a wonderful time at our Women's Retreat each fall at Camp Marshall on beautiful Flathead Lake. Watch for information about our next retreat.
A series of classes designed for adults who wish to explore what it means to be a Christian in the Episcopal tradition. It is ideal for those who would like to engage their faith more fully, deepen their understanding of the Episcopal Church, or who are seeking to be confirmed or received into the Church. If you are interested in an Inquirers' Class, please contact Rev. Terri at for more information.
EfM -- Education for Ministry
Education for Ministry is a four-year ministry formation and theological education program for lay persons. It is a wonderful opportunity to make your faith come alive! Through study, prayer and reflection, EfM groups move toward a new understanding of the fullness of God's kingdom. Led by Julie Benson, participants meet once a week, September-May, to study the Bible, church history and theology, while learning to engage together in theological reflection. EfM is an outreach program of the School of Theology, University of the South, located in Sewanee, Tennessee. Students are guided in discerning and nurturing their ministries, as we are called to do by our baptismal covenant. The process provides each member with knowledge and confidence about themselves, teaching them to work with others as a group while deepening their faith.
EfM (Education for Ministry) is taking registrations for the fall course which will start in September and go through May and meets each Wednesday from 2:30 - 5 p.m. via Zoom. EfM is a small group of people coming together to develop habits of heart and mind and ways of seeing God's mystery and presence in our lives.
