Adult Education

labyrinth

Adult Education at Church of the Holy Spirit can also be referred to as Spiritual Enrichment.  Topics we focus on are meant to enrich and enliven one's relationships with God, self and others.  Throughout the year we offer the following opportunities for spiritual growth to members and the greater Verona community:

Education Series – Often held on Sundays after Coffee Hour or during a week night, sometimes in a particular season of the year (like Lent or Advent).  Various topics on spirituality, wellness and Bible study are offered by trained facilitators.

Centering Prayer Group – Our Centering Prayer Group is on hiatus at this time.  We normally spend twenty minutes centering and another hour discussing a spirituality topic selected by the group.  Centering Prayer may provide a method for you to find divine peace and to be present with the indwelling God.  Centering Prayer is a form of Contemplative Prayer, opening our hearts and minds to God, the Ultimate Mystery, beyond any thoughts, words and feelings.  It is a prayer in silence, practicing what the Psalmist teaches us: “Be still and know that I am God.”
