Peachtree City UMC plans Centering Prayer workshop

Peachtree City United Methodist Church invites the community to a Centering Prayer Workshop on Saturday, Feb. 27, from 8:30 a.m. - 3 p.m.

“Centering Prayer helps open minds and hearts to the presence of Christ and to deeper relationship with him,” a spokesperson said. “Rather than replace other forms of prayer, Centering Prayer casts a new light and depth on the meaning of them. Based in Christian tradition, the practice of Centering Prayer was developed as a way of praying that leads one beyond conversation with Christ to communion with Christ through silence, solitude and simplicity.”

The workshop will be led by Roberta Oster, coordinator for Contemplative Outreach of Atlanta, and costs $30. Register online at or by calling the church at 770-487-6499.

Reservations made by Feb. 24 will include a box lunch and drink. The church will take registrations at the door on Feb.27 (lunch not included).

Registration includes an optional six-week Centering Prayer weekly study on Mondays, March 1 through April 12, from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. Participation in the workshop is not a requirement for the weekly study. Advance registration is encouraged.

Both the workshop and the weekly study group will be held at the PTCUMC Worship Campus, 225 Robinson Rd., in Peachtree City. For more information on the practice of Centering Prayer go to
