Faith Discussion Group

The Faith Discussion Grouphas resumed it Thursday evening meetings at 7:30 in the lounge. There you will find this group meeting for scripture-based discussions and a reach for a better understanding of God’s word.

Leader Don DeVries states, "I was taught by my dad that no one person has all the Holy Spirit, and I have found this to be true".

By having an opportunity to share our understanding with other Christians, and to hear theirs, it’s amazing how much everyone gains. Join the group for prayer, fellowship, and for sharing your understanding and faith. It is a growth experience.

All are welcome!

Please visit our Multimedia Section, where you can find podcasts of Martin's sermons, as well as videos and other Christian multimedia materials
