Summer Drop-in Bible Study: Four Scriptures Every Christian Should Know By Heart
From the earliest days of Christianity, the church has valued these formative and life-changing touchstones of the faith. They are passages that can be learned by heart and from which we can draw strength.
Join Pastor Claudia over four weeks as we recite them, contemplate them, pray over them, and reflect on their power to enrich how we relate to God, to ourselves, and to our neighbor.
