Spiritual Growth


Grace—A Workbook

Dr. Mary Franzen Clark

Thursdays beginning January 7 from 7-8 pm


Many of us use the word “Grace”—we say Grace before eating, “There but for the Grace of God go I,” etc. But do we really know what Grace is and the various ways it functions? This class will cover the 16 lessons in the interactive workbook (some may take more than one week to complete); lessons which were originally written for my Adult Sunday School class at Orchard. The approach offers the double benefit of learning the theology of Grace along with psychological insights into human behavior. The class members will come out with a fresh sense of Grace as well as a fresh look at themselves and what we can become through the power of God’s Grace. The workbook can be purchased on Amazon or Barnes and Noble. We will start the Zoom classes on Thursdays, beginning January 7, from 7-8 pm. To register, send your name and email information to Mary Clark

Adult Sunday School

11 am - via Zoom


Feisty Women of the Bible   There are many stories of women in the Bible—some we know, and some that are not so well known. The class will use a book to read the (short) stories of each woman to more fully understand what happened to them in their time and culture. Then we will discuss what we can learn from them to apply to our lives today. This Sunday morning class will meet via Zoom at 11 am and begins September 13. Open to anyone in the Orchard congregation. If interested, contact Mary Clark.
