THEME: Patience of God

What is patience, and how do we get it? A deeper look at what patience actually is, leads us to behold the very nature of God, and defines our life as Christians. His patience for us is the source of our hope.

Alan Johnson

Adult Class

Have you ever felt stuck in your spiritual life? Have you ever felt a disconnect between your knowledge and experience of God? This year Pastor Alan Johnson will lead the adult class through an exploration of spiritual formation that will provide both a theological framework and practical disciplines to go deeper in our relationship with God and others. And the good news is that we do not change in order to be accepted, we are accepted in order that we might be changed!
