New Book Study Starts Sunday, March 15

Come and share in a study of Pastor Timothy Keller’s most recent book, “Prayer: Experiencing Awe and Intimacy with God”, during our Sunday morning study hour for adults. We meet at 9:45 a.m. in the main lobby of the Salt Lake Regional Medical Center.

We will plan to cover a chapter a week, beginning with the Introduction and Chapter 1 for Sunday, March 15.

NOTE: Due to planned renovations of the main lobby, our study will move to a conference room near the Cafeteria once renovations begin. Look for an announcement on the homepage.
