What’s our faith foundation? What do we really believe? We look to answer those questions and more over the next several weeks.  Everyone is invited to the adult Bible study time at 9:45am on Sundays to discover, or re-discover, the riches of our faith – what we believe, teach, and confess. Pastor Mongeau will lead this engaging discussion designed for our church family members, those who have been visiting our church family, and those who are brand new to Christianity. Come and ask a lot of questions or just come and listen, as we explore together the foundation of our faith and what we truly believe. If you have any questions, please talk to Pastor Mongeau or Pastor Manor.
