INTO HIS LIKENESS
Tuesday, August 30th thru Tuesday, September 27, 2022
Adult Faith Formation presents our theme for the ’22-’23 year “Discipleship” In the ancient disciple-rabbi relationship the disciple would follow the rabbi so closely that he would be covered in the dust kicked up from his rabbi’s feet. Today we are still called to be disciples--to follow our Rabbi, Jesus Christ, so closely that we are covered with his life, changed, and made new.
“Into His Likeness” will be our introductory program on Tuesdays, Aug. 30-Sept. 27; 7:00PM-8:30PM in the HFC In this series, Dr. Sri reminds us that in our human condition we are full of weaknesses, wounds and sins but that we are called to be perfected in God’s love and transformed by Jesus.
Registration is required at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cost is $8.00 for the study guide and may be turned into the office. Registration is due by Monday, August 8th.
Questions? Contact Kathy Collier at (419) 385-2557.
