Lenten Sunday School Study

We are getting ready to go into a season of reflection and prayer as a community gathered around the table. I want to invite every member of the church to gather for a study of the "5 Marks Of Love", the mission of the Episcopal Church, at 9:15 each Sunday. Please make time to gather as a community. Fr. Jos will facilitate the study and group leaders will help advance in our reflection each week. It begins on Sunday March 5th, the first Sunday in Lent. Let us learn together in the midst of forgiving love, we can flourish and blossom. We can become the voice of love and tolerance, compassion and kindness in the River Valley and be therefore perfect as the Heavenly Father is perfect. It is possible to be perfect. Let us make up our mind and that's all what is needed.
