5. Soul Keeping: Caring for the Most Important Part of You (8 Weeks)
Leader: Pastor Jen Galley
The health of your soul is the hinge on which the rest of your life hangs. It's the difference between deep, satisfied spirituality and a restless, dispassionate faith. In this class, based on the inspiring book and DVD series by John Ortberg, we’ll discover how to find lasting peace and satisfaction in living life with God.
“The soul is the coolest, eeriest, most mysterious, evocative, crucial, sacred, eternal, life-directing, fragile, indestructible, controversial, expensive dimension of your existence. Jesus said it’s worth more than the world.” –John Ortberg
Recommended resource: “Soul Keeping” book $14
6. Global Conversations (4 Weeks)
Leaders: Pam Peterson and David Dragert
Join us as we interview a different missionary or ministry leader each week. We’ll gather for coffee and snacks and discuss calling, culture, and current events. We’ll learn how to pray for the world and discover the best practices for leading others into a relationship with Jesus.
