SHARE YOUR PASSION —
We hope to offer a variety of classes for people of all ages this fall, designed around what you love to do. The possibilities could include things such as art, music, cooking, fitness, softball, reading, writing, history, astronomy, woodworking, needlepoint, gardening, photography, etc. If you have a passion that you are willing to share, contact the church office and let us know how many weeks you’ll need. We’ll promote your idea to the church and community, and if there’s enough interest, we’ll schedule you to begin on Oct. 18.
