Church-Wide Spiritual Study, GOSPEL
Sundays, Feb 24–April 14
5:30–7 pm in the Fellowship Hall

The word, “GOSPEL” means GOOD NEWS. Who doesn’t need good news in our world today?   People are looking for good news all over the place while we have amazing Scripture and our Wesleyan church tradition that offers the best good news of all. As our church continues our Next Level Innovations (NLI) journey this year, Pastor Fran will spend these 8 weeks facilitating as we study, discuss and share the gospel in order to be renewed individually and as a church of the Gospel Good News. Focusing on Grace and its meaning and beauty, we will be reminded of how God has uniquely graced and called us forward to be a people of grace. Study books will be provided and handed out at the first session. Our worship during this season of Lent will coincide with these topics. Register for this class below.
