Wednesday Night Classes

Each Wednesday Night during the academic year we have a fellowship meal and classes. Some classes are year-long and others are short-term; but all classes give the participant a chance to grow in their faith. Classes for Fall 2017 will be listed soon.

This weekly gathering is for all skill levels from beginner to advanced. This fall the group plans to make hats for school children and babies at Cookeville Regional Medical Center. Tuesdays 1-3 p.m. starting September 15th.

 

Centering Prayer is a method of silent prayer in which we experience God's presence within us, closer than breathing, closer than thinking, closer than consciousness itself. This method of prayer is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship. Centering Prayer emphasizes prayer as a personal relationship with God and as a movement beyond conversation with Christ to communion with Christ. It helps deepen our relationship with the living Christ while it bonds us together in mutual friendship and love. Wednesdays from 10-11:30 a.m. beginning October 21 through December 2. 

 

Wednesdays, 6–7:30 p.m. 

 

 

Participants are given a different writing prompt each week and are encouraged to create detailed and meaningful journal entries by digging deep into their memories to write about the topic.  Those who wish to share their stories with the class are welcome to do so.  These journals can be passed on to heirs or simply used by the author for entertainment and/or introspection.  No writing experience is required and all ages are welcome.  This class is full but anyone who would like to be added to the waiting list can contact Jennie Ivey. Wednesdays, 10 a.m.-noon.
