BUILD YOUR FAITH

THE BEATITUDES: HAPPINESS IS A SERIOUS BUSINESS

Sundays 11AM - Noon

Meeting in Room 123 with Chaplain Joe Denton, MDiv

Summary: According to the Beatitudes, we should pursue happiness in the Lord. We need to adopt a theology of happiness. The pursuit of happiness is common to all people. It is the motive behind much of what we do. But the path to true happiness is far different than people think. This course investigates the joys that can be found in knowing God and living his way. All are welcome to join at any time during this 9 week course.
