This fall we will be exploring the role of prayer in our lives. We will experience this theme in our worship, Christian Education programs, and the life of the church. We are very pleased to be working with the Interfaith Center of Greater Philadelphia in offering a wonderful program this fall that will be offered on
Wednesday evenings 6:30-8 pm
Sept 27-Nov 1, 2017
During these gatherings we will study and explore the contemplative practices of other faith traditions. Our first weeks have been attended by over 25 people representing 7 different faith communities. We are looking forward to welcoming more friends and neighbors in the coming weeks.
