Baptisms on Easter Sunday, April 21

The act of baptism is a powerful moment in our walk with the Lord. This step of proclaiming your faith and intention to follow Christ for life is a marker that will be of encouragement to you and to many others. If you haven't yet been baptized, it's never too late. Come to an upcoming class or contact Pastor Megan to talk about what this could mean for you.

Discovering Your Calling

Mondays, April 8-29, 7-8:30pm, CLC Glacier (302), $10, Register
What is calling? How does God see it? How do we know what ours is? This four-week class will take a biblical look at calling and help discover ours in the midst of God's vision for all of creation. This class is designed to give a biblical overview of faith and work, with the hope that you grow in developing a clearer sense of God's calling for you. Over the course of these four weeks, we hope to demystify the idea of calling and deepen your understanding and experience of everyday work. For more information or to sign up, email Pastor Megan.

Meeting God in Scripture

Spiritual Journey

Tuesdays, 7:00pm, August 27—December 10 - Stay tuned for Registration

If you want to change your life, consider the Spiritual Journey program to bring wholeness and emotional healing to your life. Spiritual Journey offers a way to grow beyond the harmful effects of a troubled home environment: neglect, divorce, abandonment, violence, abuse, suicide, over-controlling, religiosity, addictions, or death of a family member. The process of recovery is a journey that takes us from a life of confusion or grief to a place of peace and freedom—one day at a time. Payment for this class is accepted on the first day of class. Please bring your payment in the form of cash or check.

Emotionally Healthy Spirituality

This class is not currently being offered. Stay tuned for future dates.

Join Bethany as we embark on a new journey toward emotional and spiritual health. The following is a quote from the founders of the class: 

"At EHS, we are dedicated to pointing people to an authentic, vibrant, and deeply transformational relationship with Jesus. We know that spiritual maturity and emotional health are inseparable and have developed a strategy for discipleship that integrates both of these key components with a slowed down lifestyle that puts being with Jesus before doing for Jesus."
