Loving Actions

If you don’t know what you are aiming for, you can’t hit the bullseye. Having a spiritual target is essential for knowing whether your life is reflecting God’s vision, or if you’re simply going through the motions. During this series, we’ll create a portrait of what it looks like when we’re growing in our lives with Jesus and ask the question: “When are we successful as Christian disciples?”

The September read is  The Fall Of Marigolds by Susan Meissner. This book moves
between stories of two women trying to recover from the losses of a terrible fire in 1911 New York City and the unforgettable fall of the twin towers on 9/11. An uncommon celebration of the human spirit in the face of unspeakable tragedy. Join us for good discussion and great fellowship.
