2022 Programs and Events

 

The Christian Meditation Center offers Christian meditation training and weekly support sessions, retreats, prayer group meetings and book clubs throughout the year. We have designed our programming to heal our heart, soul and mind.  We believe what scripture tells us, “Seek first the Kingdom of God and everything will be given to you.” So we provide Christ-centered instruction and practices that support our desire for a deeper and more intimate relationship with God.  Check out our calendar for dates and times!

Most of our programs are Pay What You Want.  We rely on your generosity to support our vision and mission.  Thank you!

Spiritual Direction

All of us come to a place in our lives when we are not sure where to go next or we feel stuck in our current circumstances. Sometimes it is helpful to share what is on our heart, soul, and mind with another person. We can begin to heal by having someone who will listen and to help bring clarity to what the Spirit might be inviting us to do next. We offer both individual and group spiritual direction. There is no set fee for this service. However, we do request you pray about donating to support the work we are doing.

Teresa brings nearly 40 years of her own personal discovery, along with highly specialized spiritual direction training from the Shalem Institute located in Washington DC.  She is also a Certified Lay Christian Counselor.

 

Prayer Group

In a world of constant unknowns, deciding where to put our faith is crucial to maintaining our inner peace.  The Bible tells us to be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.  Praying supports our desire to deepen our relationship with our Lord.   Whether you are a beginner or a prayer warrior, there are many ways, waiting to be discovered, on how we can approach the throne of grace.

The First Church Prayer Group meets the first Monday of the month from 7 – 8 p.m. via Zoom.  Each month, we introduce a new type of prayer found in Richard Foster’s book, Prayer: Finding the Heart’s True Home.  The format of the meeting will begin with a brief lesson on a type of prayer with open discussion.  This will allow everyone to have an opportunity to teach and learn.

Richard Foster’s book has twenty-one chapters, so it will take two years to complete.  We will complete the book in February 2022.   There is no charge to attend, and all are welcome.

 

The Daily Word

We post scripture daily on our Facebook Group called The Daily Word.  The Daily Word group will read 10 – 15 verses of scripture daily. It only takes 2-3 minutes from your busy schedule and the benefits are well worth the time spent. We are reading the Bible chronologically.  Join us .
