Adult Spiritual Growth

Sharing Stories meets on 3rd Sundays at 12:15 in the Lighthouse Classroom 1. Come and sit with friends to share our true personal stories about ourselves, our friends, families, travels, recreation, education, jobs, thoughts and feelings.

Sharing Stories are scheduled for September16, October 21 and November 18.  Please contact Arlene Stelzer, 425-584-7944 or okarlene@msn.com with comments or questions.
