"Our lifelong nostalgia, our longing to be reunited with something in the universe from which we now feel cut off, to be on the inside of some door which we have always seen from the outside, is no mere neurotic fancy, but the truest index of our real situation. And to be at last summoned inside would be both glory and honour beyond all our merits and also the healing of that old ache."
-- C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory

Spring Adult Sunday School Classes – “Shepherding a Child’s Heart” led by Dave Hawes and Phil Meilleur. The author, Tedd Tripp, challenges and equips parents to apply biblical principles as they raise and discipline their children. He encourages us to focus on the heart and direct them toward intentionally godly goals. The class will be using a video series that accompanies the book and includes lots of discussion! We will meet in Rms. 10/11. Pastor Baile will be leading a study in the sanctuary on prayer using Tim Keller’s new book on prayer, “Prayer: Experiencing Awe and Intimacy with God”. This is an excellent resource that is well researched and yet immensely practical. The church is providing the book for those attending this class. We will be reading a chapter a week and discussing the chapter in the class.
