Faith & Life Class – Charter Hall
Offering opportunities for Bible study, as well as conversations on a variety of topics.
Beginning March 1st- Lenten Bible Study, “Let Me Go There.” “The forty days of Lent, which mimic the forty days and nights Jesus spent in the wilderness, are a traditional focus for Lenten reflection not only because they reveal to us the deep nature of Jesus, but also because they give us a pattern to follow. The question is what kind of pattern do they offer?” Join us on Sunday mornings during Lent at 9:45 beginning March 1 as we study and discuss Anglican author Paula Gooder’s book Let Me Go There. Books will be available for a small donation.
March 22nd – An Update on IHP in Tanzania. As a short break from our Lenten Bible study, Paula and Denny Lofstrom will be with us on Sunday, March 22nd, to update us on the activities at the IHP-Tanzania hospital facility.
Gen X, Gen Y, Gen Z: “Head + Heart” – Atonement Chapel

Confirmation Parent Class – Room 108
