Join a St. Francis Online Course Group on the Reformation
This October, the Christian world will celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation (or, at least half of us will!). The Men's Group will be doing a 12-week online course study on the Reformation - the key people, events, and thinking that shaped what was arguably the greatest transformation of the Church in the past 2000 years. We will start the course in about 2 weeks (September 20 or 27). Click here to learn more.
