GOD’S PROMISE: I AM WITH YOU

THIRD THURSDAYS | 6:00 p.m. | Room 9

SEPTEMBER – MAY

 

Join Kimbol Soques once a month from September to May to study and discuss the ways God, the I AM who I AM of Moses, shares and fulfills God’s promise with us. We’ll be encouraged to know of God’s presence with us wherever we find ourselves on life’s journey—through uncertainty and discouragement; during trials and times of powerlessness; when we seek God’s guidance; and, yes, during our everyday lives.

If you are interested but would like to know more before signing up, join Kimbol on September 13 from 7-8 PM to hear a short presentation from the study’s author and a Q&A.

Classes & Retreats build around understanding your number
and the Enneagram as a whole

 
The Enneagram is an ancient, dynamic, faith-based tool for understanding ourselves (and others). It leads us to deep self awareness, and personal transformation, helping us encounter ourselves as beloved children of God. The nine ways of experiencing and inhabiting the world articulated by the Enneagram, help us live beyond our knee-jerk, default behaviors, and engage the world (and ourselves!) with more compassion and understanding.
 
All Enneagram classes and retreats will be taught and facilitated by Beth Mueller and Nancy Herlin.
 

ENNEAGRAM 1

ENNEAGRAM 2

MONDAYS | 7:00 p.m. | Classroom B

OCTOBER 8 – OCTOBER 29

 
This class takes the basic knowledge from Enneagram 1 and adds the next layer of wisdom: understanding our repressed and dominant centers of intelligence, which numbers we borrow “help” from in times of comfort or crisis, and some practical tools to help us keep our egos from driving our lives so we can fully embrace who we really are: beloved children of God.
