FLOURISH: PRACTICES FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH

Flourish is a new year-long Teaching Group designed to help us learn and flourish in our relationship with God. Each month Charles Maynard will share a short video that introduces the practice that we will consider for the month. We will also have a monthly Zoom discussion group, and reading assignments. We will be referring to our bibles and to the book Celebration of Discipline – The Path to Spiritual Growth by Richard J. Foster.

This group will continue throughout 2021.

To be a part of this group, purchase the Foster book from your favorite bookseller and register here to receive the monthly videos and links for the Zoom group discussions. Discussion groups will be held on the last Tuesday of each month at noon and the last Wednesday of each month at 7:45 pm.
