Sunday School Short Term Study on the Belhar Confession
Beginning February 5, we will have a short term study on the Belhar Confession during Sunday School led by Belle McMaster. Belhar is the latest Confession approved by the Presbyterian Church, USA in June, 2016. It comes from the Dutch Reformed Mission Church in South Africa. Confessions tell us what our church believes. The theme of Belhar is reconciliation. The four week study will be held on February 5, 12, 19, and 26 in the Fellowship Hall. All are welcome!
