Adult Education Winter Retreat
The church bus will be taking a group of adults to St. Francis Springs Prayer Center on Friday, January 24 to Sunday, January 26, 2014. This retreat for women, men and couples is a unique opportunity to recoup from the rush of the holiday season and go deeper along the way of contemplation into the spiritual dimension of life. St. Francis Springs is nestled in a natural sanctuary of 140 wooded acres 40 miles north of Greensboro, NC.
More information is available at the Receptionist’s Desk in the Church Office or contact Lloyd Griffith, firstname.lastname@example.org or 675-8196

Trust the Wildness

It describes his story of trying to understand the experience of faith in a post Christian era. In writing the book, Lloyd hoped by sharing his faith journey we may better understand our own faith, as well as some insight into our thoughts and unanswered questions. The book is available in the church office.
