You need to know...
In response to our local church context at Sligo, we’ve produced a Curriculum by Sligo members for Sligo members. We invite the whole church to study together during this first quarter of 2018 what it means to be the Biblical Community Christ created us to be. 

February Dates:

Community and the World | February 10 – February 16
Diversity and Community | February 17 – February 23
Sin in Community | February 24 – March 2


If you are unable to attend Sabbath School, we’d still love for you to study the lesson in your home, with your family, or with fellow Sligo members. 

Pick up a copy at our Welcome Desk or click here to download the Curriculum. 

No matter how you choose to engage in the study of this Curriculum, please join us in the conversation in our discussion group located at Sligo Church facebook page.  Click Here

*Traditional Quarterly is available at Welcome Desks.
