Equipped Class: Mary Pondered. Do We?

December 11 | 10-10:45am | Parlor
Join us as we dig deeper into a familiar part of the Christmas story – Luke 2:19 “But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.” Learn how we can enrich our own spiritual lives by practicing “pondering” and “treasuring,” giving us a deeper understanding of what God is doing in our relationship with Him. This class will be led by First Pres Equipped Coordinator, Nancy Cavanaugh.
