Church to present a seven-part series on faith

SILVER CREEK – The Silver Creek Assembly Of God Church asks, “What do we all have in common?

We all thirst for meaning, comfort, safety, peace of mind and clarity of purpose.”

Pastor James Morrison of the Silver Creek Assembly of God Church invites all to a seven-part series designed to assist participants in finding these important qualities in their own lives.

H2O-A Journey Of Faith is a DVD-based, seven-week experience designed to create a safe atmosphere where people are comfortable considering the person of Jesus Christ. This creative tool meets an ancient need: sharing the truth of Jesus Christ through relationships and community. H2O transforms lives by feeding the mind, moving the heart, and stimulating the senses.

The sessions will begin on June 12 with a light supper at 6 p.m. followed by the presentation and discussion. The session will end promptly at 8 p.m.
