The Thirteen Apostles, by J. Ellsworth Kalas

Companions in Christ, The Way of Grace

Facilitated by Susan Hughes
 Even before we recognize its need in our lives, God extends us favor. This study explores the Gospel of John and, specifically, how divine grace is at work in our lives today, just as it was in the lives of biblical characters 2000 years ago. If you long to open your heart to a deeper knowing of God’s grace— to recognize the ”soul’s deep compass steering us Godward,” this is the study for you.
Thursdays at 10:30-Noon beginning September 17 through November 19
Class limited to 12. 
Books are available for $8
