  • Sunday Adult Christian Education

    Adult Christian Education at 10:10am Sundays in St. Barbara  

    Join us this program year (September – May) as we walk "The Path," along with our children and youth. The editors of "The Path" describe it this way: it “offers readers a clear and easy-to-read introduction to the grand story of the Bible. Follow the path of God’s love all the way from the beginning to the end, from Adam’s creation to John’s  revelation. "The Path" is an experience unlike any other: an amazing 360-degree overview of the vast, sweeping epic of God’s extraordinary love for ordinary people.” You may read ahead in your own copy (available through Forward Movement) during the week, or simply join us on Sundays (no preparation required) as we explore the “greatest hits” of the Bible.

  • Weekly Centering Prayer

    Saturdays 8:30am, the All Saints’ Centering Prayer Group has weekly meetings in the Chapel. This time of prayer is open to anyone who is interested in practicing the ancient, yet timely practice of Centering Prayer, or learning more about it. The Practice of Centering Prayer familiarizes us with God’s first language – SILENCE. Participation in a weekly Centering Prayer group encourages perseverance in your individual practice, further input through resources and discussions, and an opportunity to share the spiritual journey. Additional information can be found in the Centering Prayer brochure, located in the tract rack, or by contacting Robin Wright at rbnrit@cox.net, Sara Soller at sara.soller@gmail.com, or Jennifer King at jbk393@yahoo.com.
