Listening with Love: Homelessness • April 6–27 • 6:00 p.m. • Dining Room

Every Wednesday night during the month of April, the congregation will be invited to participate in conversation around how we live as followers of Jesus in our relationship with those in our church and community who are experiencing homelessness.

The purpose of Listening with Love conversations is . . .

    • to create a safe environment for speaking openly and honestly with one another about topics that impact our lives, faith, and community;
    • to listen with respect to each other and to the Bible; and
    • to remain united in Christian love when we disagree.

Bible Study: The Good News of God’s Grace • April 6-27 • 6:00 p.m. • MB303
Led by Ed Graham and Randy Harter

This four week study will explore the depths of God’s grace by looking at scripture and considering the obstacles we construct that prevent us from receiving and giving grace. You are encouraged to bring your Bible.
