Spiritual direction is a ministry of listening, discernment, and prayer in a confidential setting of encouragement and compassion. Through this ministry one discerns the presence and work of God’s Spirit with a companion who sets aside the concerns of their own life to attend to the experience of God in the life of another. We are fortunate to have two Spiritual Directors that sets aside one day each month to meet with members of our church family. As a gift to you, church will pay for your first session so you can try it out (made possible by a generous gift to the church Memorial Fund). After your complimentary session, the cost is $50 (financial assistance available upon request). We hope you are deeply blessed by your time in Spiritual Direction.
Our commitment to the Chopda Church Partnership continues. The construction of a school building has begun in Chopda with a goal to begin classes this October. Sunday Kids Camp has learned about the need of the children in Chopda for uniforms, books, and other supplies and hope to collectively raise $1,000.
We hope that by working together in this partnership, we are instilling in our children a heart for God’s kingdom work. Thank you so much for coming alongside your child and helping them in this endeavor!
