Celebrating Christ’s love for us.

Lenten Bible Study

Join us for a 6-week study using video and resources from Robert Schnase’s book “Just Say Yes” we will study God’s intentions for today’s church in today’s culture and how we can be a part of that.  Facilitated by Pastor Alice we will look at the ways we say no to what God is calling us to and how to move into faithfully saying yes.  A great way to examine our own values and intentions as the body of Christ! Begins Sunday, March 5, at 6:30 pm in the church basement. For more information contact the church office 785-528-4443 or email
