Spirituality Series—Feeding the Spirit by Giving Back
We feed our spirits with so much more than prayer and scripture. In these six sessions we will have speakers who can tell us all the ways we can give back (not just with money) to make a difference. We will be using a model from the book and website – “I Like Giving.” More details are coming soon!!
