This class will be a gentle class for all levels with special focus on faith and building relationships especially with our faith family in Siloam, Uganda. There will be a FREE WILL donation bucket and all monies will go toward our church’s relationship and upcoming journey to share our gifts with our faith family in Siloam, Uganda.

These classes are offered once a month (second to the last Thursday of each month; all classes are on the online calendar) with the next class on Thursday, November 21, from 6-6:45 pm (note change in time) at the church.  Just show up!  Bring a friend! You will feel welcome and accepted!
