Join us for a 4-week study of the Adam Hamilton book “Why? Making Sense of God’s Will”. Hamilton is senior pastor of The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas. A master at explaining difficult questions of faith in a down-to-earth fashion, he is the author of numerous books. Class will begin Wednesday, Jan 23 and run through Feb 13. We will meet in the Eds Building at 10 a.m. for about 90 minutes. A typical class session will begin and end with prayer, and will include Biblical Foundation, group discussion and activity, and a short DVD presentation. Each participant will be asked to purchase the book at a cost of $10.
Please sign up for the class as soon as possible but no later than Jan 14 so we can order books and get them to you prior to our first session. Call Gail Parson or the church office to sign up for the class.
