FARGO — Presentation Prayer Center in south Fargo will hold several events this fall.

The center, 1101 32nd Ave. S., will host weekly workshops 7 to 8:30 p.m. Sept. 18 and 25 and Oct. 2 and 9 to discuss "At Home in the Woodlands," written by workshop leader James Alger.

The workshops are limited to 10 participants with a $40 suggested fee, but scholarships are available.

On Sept. 21, International Peace Day and the center's monthly Taize Prayer will coincide. Presentation Prayer Center is planning a 7:30 p.m. event for that day to pray for peace and an end to violence. There's no fee for the center's monthly Taize Prayer, which happens at 7:30 p.m. the third Friday of each month from September through May.

The center is also planning a fundraiser brunch 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 4 at the Holiday Inn, 3803 13th Ave. S., Fargo, featuring Lonnie Pederson, executive director of the Jeremiah Program Fargo-Moorhead. Tickets for that event are $30 or $240 for a table of eight.

Presentation Prayer Center will host a series of book discussions 6:45 to 8 p.m. each Thursday from Oct. 4 through Nov. 8 about "Redirecting — Discovering Hope in the Unexpected" by Susan M. Vitalis. There's a $40 suggested fee for this discussion series, which is limited to 10 participants.
