    • Tuesdays 7:00pm – The Gospel of Mark – The Jesus We’re Aching For (Lisa Harper). Starts on September 12 and goes for 7 weeks.  God’s heart is moved by our cries for help and shouts for joy. In this 7-session Bible study, The Gospel of Mark: The Jesus We’re Aching For, we’ll follow Jesus through his days of early ministry all the way to the cross. It’s there we discover what it means to be the recipients of his excessive compassion and the very reason for his all-consuming passion. Meets at PCW.   Contact Beth Emanuelson

Designated to help you make the journey together, The Life You’ve Always Wanted guides you down the ancient path of the spiritual disciplines.  Starts 9/15 and runs for 6 weeks.
