DISCERNMENT

 
The class is a unique opportunity to explore Spiritual Discernment… that is, figuring out what God is trying to tell us, or where God is leading, or making a decision that seems that we should consider God’s input. The class will be a commitment and a blessing all at the same time.
 
 These sessions are facilitated by Kris Shoaf, a deaconess in the United Methodist Church and
Kim La Rue, certificated in Spiritual Formation.
