TWO NEW CLASSES FOR ADULTS THIS FALL
Mixed age adults – upstairs in the Benson Building
This new class will provide opportunities to meditate upon Scripture and pray together. We will learn and practice two methods of prayer: Lectio Divina and Centering Prayer. Using Lectio Divina the class will focus & meditate upon a passage of Scripture. The goal of Centering Prayer, a form of silent prayer, is to consent to God’s presence for a period of time. We will use one or both types of prayer each week.
Contact Bobby Evans for more information.
Mixed age adults – upstairs at The Place
This new class is especially for those who are looking to return to Sunday School, those who have never been a part of a Sunday School Class, or those looking for a fresh start. The Fall study will center around the book of Matthew. Contact Joel Snider for more information.
