Families in Christ

SUNDAYS, 9:30 AM, ROOM 112

Adults of all ages are welcome to this Sunday morning class where we circle up to discuss and grow in faith together! Social and service opportunities are offered throughout the year.

This group is studying, Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead by Brené Brown. Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable or to dare greatly. Based on twelve years of pioneering research, Dr. Brown dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and argues that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.
