The Living Faith class would like to invite the congregation to join us in the basement (across from the youth) at 9:45am in a new study titled Animate: Faith (http://animate.wearesparkhouse.org/animate/faith/). In each session, the group will watch a video featuring a leading voice from the Christian faith, spend time on personal reflection and journaling, and share ideas with the group. Each session delves into a faith topic: God, religion, Jesus, salvation, the cross, the Bible, and church. Please contact Terrie Shaffer or Amy Wilfong for more information and to reserve your materials.
