CHEERS – Christians Happily Engaged in Enriching, Relevant Studies

Location: Below the Sanctuary

“Christians Happily Engaged in Enriching, Relevant Studies”. This is a multi-generational class, which includes couples and singles. The class focuses on contemporary issues in a supportive Christian environment. We are willing to question tradition as we discuss how to be Christians in today’s world. We find grace in the search for understanding and believe there is more value in questioning than in absolutes. All opinions are valued. The coffee pot is always on. Join us anytime.
