We eat, study, and pray together. Collectively, we choose books to read and discuss, alternating volunteer teachers in class with in-depth, varying opinions and debate. We enjoy one another and laugh at our exchanges. Together, we bring food, welcome new friends, study the Bible, and support and share life experiences. We endeavor to live as Jesus would live, and pray that our varied approach to study and learning will continually lead us to deeper Christian faith and understanding.
