Lenten Study 2018: The Anatomy of Peace. What if conflicts at home, at work and in the world stem from the same root cause? Through a moving story of parents who are struggling with their own children and problems that have come to consume their lives, we will learn from once-bitter enemies the way to transform personal, professional and global conflicts. Lenten Study 2018 includes a sermon series, a book study, class discussion and small groups. Books are on sale in Wright Hall during Sunday Fellowship Hour for $10.

Donations can be placed in the Mission Center box under the coat rack across from the parlor.
