During Lent we are studying and discussing the book, Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations by Robert Schanse.

Each week the staff member who is leading will have an introductory video that addresses the weekly practice. The video will be available in a link on our website (see below) and in the weekly Kirk News. Our study will meet on Wednesday evenings during Lent from 6:30 p.m.-7:00 p.m. (following dinner in Molly Wier Hall). The dates are March 4- April 1st. Please join us for dinner and the discussion each week. To make a reservation for the dinner, please contact….. The meal is 10$. Books are available through Suzy Edwards and are $10.
