The class is brought together by a common desire to know God more intimately. We have been working through a multi-year study of a walk through the Bible starting with Genesis and will end with Revelations. All studies are scripture-based. For many years, the class’s mission project has been to provide duffel bags filled with personal items as Christmas gifts for residents of Shepherd’s Fold, a halfway house for former inmates transitioning out of prison back into society. We also have members who are involved with Habitat for Humanity, Angel Food ministries, and the Men’s ministry. We consider our group as family and we strengthen that family unit with socials, at least, once per quarter. Contact Renee Gorman ({This email is obscured.
