ASPIRE Classes



Adult Sunday School Class will resume class on Sunday September 17  in the Westminister room at 9:00 am.



They begin the year with the study from C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters which they will study through November 26.   Everyone welcome to attend class and participate in the study.   


The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis is a classic masterpiece of religious satire    that entertains readers with its sly and ironic portrayal of human life and          foibles from the vantage point of Screwtape, a highly placed assistant to the      "Our Father Below."  At once wildly comic, deadly serious, and strikingly original, C.S. Lewis's The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging account of temptation- and triumph over it -ever written.
