SUMMER CAMP DATES
Adult Catechism class is this Tuesday at 7:00 pm. Due to Lent I will not have the time to adequately prepare full lectures. As such, these sessions will be more question driven by you. So, please do your part by bringing questions to the classes. I will certainly lecture on the reading but not in the length and depth I did previously. For homework read from Volume 2: Worship pages 16-28. Questions for Volume 2 are on the glass kiosk as you enter the Community Center. Our last Catechism Class for Lent will be March 20th. Class will resume at a later date.
