Please join us for a new and exciting five week study, “Teach Us to Want: Longing, Ambition: the Life of Faith.” Author Jen Pollock Michel explores the themes of Fear and Courage, Grace, Scripture and Prayer, Petition and Confessions, Community and Commitment.

Classes will be on Tuesdays at 7 p.m., weekly, from February 3 to March 3. The book is available in paperback or by download at Amazon or from the publisher, Intervarsity Press. Contact: Shivonne McKay at firstname.lastname@example.org.
