Connection Point: Fall Schedule
Join us Sunday mornings in October at 9:15 am as we finish Paul’s final communication to Timothy, in the book of 2 Timothy, picking up at Chapter 4. Then, in November, we will begin a study on an overlooked area of our lives. We Americans spend much time working on the health and appearance of our bodies, but give very little attention to the health of our souls. Come join us for a study that will serve to be like a spa for the soul, using John Ortberg’s book, Soul Keeping. But don’t expect to come through this study feeling pampered. It will be more like a workout than a stint in the sauna, so join us for the workout!

Manna Ministry provides meals to people who are in crisis or other need. Our supplies are running low. Could you help rebuild our stock by preparing some food that can be frozen and ready to deliver?
