"But those who hope in the Lord will  renew  their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. " (Isaiah 40:31)
Note from Pastor Glenna:
Many thanks for the various ways you are continuing your discipleship journey through participation in study, reading the devotionals, small groups, and online classes. As we cautiously take next steps back to gathering together, below are some suggestions and ideas on how to stay engaged in study and service in the coming weeks.

As always let me know of questions, concerns, or ideas you may have as we move forward. (
