Adult Classes – Summer 2017

summer_3913cLooking for ways to keep learning this summer?

Summertime is more laid back and relaxed for most of us, so what a great opportunity to spend time with God. Sign up for one of these study options today at stjconnect.org or by calling the church office at 752-6154. Childcare may be available if requested two weeks ahead of time and if there is more than one family needing it.

 

 

Contemplating Prayers

Too often we rush through our prayers like they are no more than a laundry list for God. We tell God what we want God to do and then get about the business of our day. What if we took time to pray the well-known prayers of our best spiritual teachers slowly, allowing our souls to digest their wisdom and allowing the Holy Spirit to speak to us through them? This group will take the prayers of Jesus, St. Francis of Assisi, John Wesley, and others, and let them become the door to a deeper communion with God.  Contact Joyce Day for more information.

Wednesday Women:  Finding I Am
What is that relationship, that insecurity, that hurt, that desire, that prayer you’ve brought to God countless times?  During this study, we are going to delve into the seven ‘I AM’ statements of Jesus in the Gospel of John.  Come explore the Word of God and discover Jesus anew, who is the great ‘I AM.’ Join us for Wednesday Women’s summer study and see what Jesus says to us and how He wants to satisfy our hearts. Finding I AM by Lisa Terkeurst.
