Wednesday Morning Group

The Wednesday Morning Group meets weekly at 10 A.M. to pray, worship, study and really, really enjoy friendship. The group begins with prayer concerns, followed by a book or study discussion. Those prayer concerns become intercessions for Noonday prayers from the Book of Common Prayer after the discussion, and then those whose schedules permit enjoy lunch together at a local restaurant.

Recent book studies include Walk in Love, Episcopal Beliefs and Practices by Scott Gunn and Melody Wilson Sholb and Tragically Transformed by Stark County’s own Kendra Wriston. Attendance is informal. Join in any Wednesday that you can. Visitors welcome! A once a month evening group is also available for those unavailable during the day. Contact the church office for details!
