This education series invites us to explore our faith more intentionally, and deepen our shared faith together. We will meet on five Sundays during the 2017-2018 year: October 1, November 12, February 4, March 4, and April 22. We gather after church for 45 minutes to engage each other in conversation, reflection, and short spiritual exercises around topics that help us live out our faith daily. This intergenerational class is held from 11:30am to 12:15pm in the Harvey Room. All are welcome as time and interest allow. —The Rev. Margaret K. Schwarzer.
