Discover Your Path to Intimacy with God: Sep-Nov 2015
How do you express your faith? Do you have a time, a place, a way in which you best meet with God? Do you ever struggle to connect with prescribed ways of devotional times? Based on the book Sacred Pathways by Gary Thomas, this 8 week session will guide you into discovering your pathway for developing a deeper walk with God. God has designed a variety of avenues to connect His people with Him. We will explore these together through study, conversation, shared experiences, and spiritual practices. Boost is a short-term, mid-week offering designed to provide a spiritual boost by engaging in study and discussion together. This session will take place at our main building every Wednesday, September 23 through November 11, 2015, from 7:00 to 8:00 pm.
