A Space for Centered CARE:
Contemplation, Action, Renewal, and Expression.

Concrete Wall


In the beginning, God illuminated the world with a Word. Where there was once watery chaos, there is now order and light. Nearly two thousand years ago, Jesus and his friends were traveling on a boat. A storm rolled over them with such ferocity that his friends–some of them veteran fishermen–were sure that they were going to perish. Jesus stilled the storm, and his friends were amazed. 

Storms still roll over the waters of our lives from time to time. Chaos still frays at our edges. In such times it can be helpful to seek a safe harbor for a time. Centering Space offers several spaces and places to gently retreat into our souls and into the love of God.

To learn more about us, check out more through our Marks Group Call.

Harbor Room


The Harbor Room at Centering Space provides a quiet space for individual and small group retreats. Equipped with resources to support contemplation and meditation, comfortable seating, and space for snacks and light meals, the Harbor Room is a place of hospitality and refuge. To avail yourself of this Harbor, please contact the Church Administrator of Trinity Presbyterian Church in Harrisonburg, VA.

Other Rooms


Centering Space also includes rooms dedicated to Contemplation, Action, Renewal, and Expression.  The technology room supports hybrid and online interactions and experiences and is also home to our indoor labyrinth.  The adjoining room is set up with stations through which visitors can explore particular themes or issues through creative expression and action.
