Thursdays at 6:15 am (Oct 3 – Nov 21, 2019)
The 9th Season of Men’s Fraternity begins on Thursday, October 3 – arrive 6:15 am in the Garden Court Atrium. We hard-stop at 7:25 am. As we have done the last two seasons, we have expert speakers to share wisdom on how to be a better father, a better husband, and a better co-worker. This is not a bible study – its an MBA for guys to avoid pitfalls that drag so many men down. We will meet 8 consecutive Thursdays, ending on November 21.
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.
