    During this period of social distancing, we are facing new challenges. For some, it's how to connected to the church, for others without a regular Sunday service or Bible study its a lack of connection to God. Losing these connections can have a big impact on our spiritual journey and how we see the world and react to it.

      *   Week 2: Worship and Prayer
      *   Week 3: Study
      *   Week 4: Serve
      *   Week 5: Give
      *   Week 6: Share
      *   Week 7: The five Practices from the Cross

    If you're interested, you can buy the book yourself or you can reach out to Gary Newsom to coordinate buying one from him before the study starts. If you're unfamiliar with Teams, we have people who can help.
