A Bead and a Prayer
Do you even feel uncomfortable when you pray? Have you ever wondered what to say when you pray? Are you looking for creative and hands on ways to connect with God?
In this class participants will be introduced to Christian prayer beads. No experience in praying with prayer beads is necessary. Participants will receive instruction in how to use prayer beads, including making their own set of prayer beads, the history of praying with beads and offer a variety of prayers. Each person will experience a hands on way to deepen their faith, understand basic Christian doctrine and listen to God. It is a wonderful tool for connecting with God. This class meets on the first Thursday of each month at 7 pm at the church starting September 1.
Christian Meditation and Contemplation
God has expectations of us. “Be holy for I am holy.” (Leviticus 20:26) There are many ways to get close to God and practice the disciplines of spiritual formation. There is a modern movement within the church that is rediscovering the almost-lost art of contemplation and meditation in the Christian tradition. In this course we will explore the ancient writings of the desert mothers and fathers as well as those modern theological scholars that are working in this field today.
In this class participants will be introduced to various forms of prayer, silence and breathing techniques as well as spiritual practices that will help them develop a deep spirituality and an ability to connect with God in a real and profound way.
This class meets on the second Thursday of each month at 7 pm at the church starting September 8. Sign up at the church office by calling (321) 632-7387 or email Pastor Todd at
