Adult Ministries invites you to journey with us to through Lent in our newest Sunday morning class “Lent: A Season of Returning.” Guided by Ruth Haley Barton’s book of the same name, we’ll read through the Lenten lectionary and discuss passages and insights from Barton’s book.  Copies are available at church.  Join in the discussion 9:30 am Sundays.
