posted Aug 24, 2018, 7:13 AM by Gethsemane Lutheran Church

You are invited to join us for this small group study on Monday evenings from 6:30-8:00 beginning Oct 1.

Do you ever wonder, “Is this as good as it gets?” “Is this what amounts to my life legacy?” or “Something has to change, but what?  What should I do?” The 7-week On Purpose Peace small group experience provides a remarkably fresh and personal response to these questions. Gather weekly to sharpen your focus on what renews and satisfies you and brings God’s peace and purpose into your life.

There is a $25 registration fee which includes the book and the participant guide, both by author Kevin W. McCarthy. You can register in the gathering place Sunday mornings Sept 16, 23 and 30.

The class will be taught by Karen Odegard and Nancy Hilla, trained facilitators from Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, Burnsville.
