Evangelicals Understanding Catholicism: Foundations for Spiritual Conversations
A seminar on Catholicism will be held on Saturday, April 28 from 9 am-noon, and on Sunday, April 29 from 6pm-9pm.
The Saturday session (Part A) will provide an introduction to the Catechism, followed by a look at Catholic beliefs and practices as expressed via the Apostles’ Creed. The Sunday evening session (Part B) will give attention to the Sacraments, and conclude with what Evangelicals and Catholics can learn from each other.
A desired outcome from the seminar is that Evangelicals will be better informed for having spiritual conversations with Catholics and in relationship building. The seminar will be led by Pastor Harry Strauss. Location is the Lounge (Forest Grove).
Though registration is not required, a rsvp to firstname.lastname@example.org or a text to 306-280-7147 would be helpful for planning.

Opportunity exists to become part of a small group, meeting on a regular basis, largely to cultivate faith, to live dependent on God, to nurture relationships, and to give expression to relevant ministry.

Catholic-Evangelical Dialogue Through Small Group LIfe
Pastor Harry Strauss has compiled a seven-session resource entitled, Evangelicals and Catholics in Dialogue: A Small Group Discussion Guide. He is looking for people who would like to be involved (post Easter) as participants, as well as potential leaders. The task for leaders would be to reach out to Catholics and Evangelicals, first in establishing a group, and then, in facilitating the small group over seven meetings. Past participants have valued the spiritual conversations around Jesus Christ.
