Caritas News

Caritas Bible Study for those in their 20s, 30s and 40s, known as Faith Lessons will meet at the home of Scott and Aurelia Green beginning at 6:00 pm on Friday, May 10th. We’ve been studying the presence of God in the “deserts” of our life and discovering the powerful message of his challenge to us and his grace. Come, have fun with great Christian fellowship, and grow in the knowledge of the Lord with us.
Caritas Q&A, which normally meets the last Sunday of the month at El Chico will be taking a break for the summer; however, we will continue to meet for activities during the summer months. Our next gathering will be Sunday, June 2nd at the Levitt Pavilion to see “Trout Fishing in America”, a great, family-friendly music group. Caritas is our young adult/young professionals group that meets to grow in faith within a community of fellow believers.
