Adult Spiritual Growth
Gathering those who fear they are not enough, so we may experience grace, wholeness, and renewal as God’s beloved.
Maybe you grew up in the church but feel like you just must not have been paying attention. Or maybe you didn’t grow up in the church and feel like everything church folks say is in a new language. Or maybe you feel pretty knowledgeable about the Christian faith but know that God always gives us something more to learn. In Faith 101 we explore the basics of the Christian faith, but never in a way that is simplistic. Faith 101 meets in Room 54 at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings.
Coordinating: Carol Ann Siciliano
