• The Grace Class: This Sunday, October 8, Vickie and Lisa Voegeli will continue to lead a book discussion of It’s Not Supposed to Be This Way by Lysa Terkeurst, president of Proverbs 31 Ministries and New York Times bestselling author. Life often turns out very differently from what we expected or how we hoped it would be. Some events bring much disappointment, while others shatter us completely. What do we do when God’s timing seems questionable, His lack of intervention hurtful, and His promises doubtful? We may wonder about the reality of God’s goodness. We have all experienced disappointments in our lives. Journey with us as we discuss where the disappointment comes from, what to do so it doesn’t keep stealing our joy and peace today, and how to live in the certainty of God’s love. This series will run through October 15. Join us in person on the third floor, or contact Jim Lane at for the Zoom link. We gather Sunday mornings at 9:45 am for fellowship, and at 10:00 am for spiritual reflection.
