Take an interactive tour of the Bible, with Pastor Beth as your guide, as you experience the ancient and present-day land and culture of the patriarchs and matriarchs. Hear how God called out to these men and women in very different contexts. Together we will hear anew God calling out and speaking to us today. Register.
Sometimes we hold back sharing Christ's love with others we know to be hurting or lonely because we are afraid of saying or doing the 'wrong' thing. What the other person may need the most is to have someone truly listen to them in a compassionate and caring way. Learn how you can be that therapeutic presence in someone else's life. Take home practical tips and techniques that you can use again and again to help you focus on being calm, free from distraction, comfortable with silence and 'in the moment' with others you care about. Leading the workshop will be Chaplain Marty Jones. Register here or call Lauren at 612.312.3413.
